Travel Tips

We all need to do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Protect yourself and others by taking the following precautions.

  • Limit all non-essential travel. Brampton Transit is a critical service and we are dedicated to providing a safe service to the community. Please only utilize transit service for necessary essential trips only.
  • Practice physical distancing.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose as much as possible.
  • Avoid contact with people who are ill.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands. Wash hands after coughing and sneezing.
  • It is mandatory for all riders to wear a non-medical mask on buses and at terminals. Click here for more information on the recovery plan.

Transit Operator Equipment

The safety of our Operators and all Transit staff is our top priority.

Transit Operators have received individual bottles of hand sanitizer for personal use on the job.

Non-Medical Face Masks:
Although we strongly encourage Operators to wear a mask at all times, there are exemptions. Under the City of Brampton’s Mandatory Face Coverings by-law, these exemptions include individuals working behind a physical barrier.

When outside of the Operator Compartment or assisting customers, our Operators are required to wear their mask unless they have a medical condition that prevents them from doing so.
