Welcome to Brampton, Canada, one of the fastest growing communities in the country and home to an award-winning transit system, Brampton Transit.
The following ten tips will help you become an experienced rider with Brampton Transit.
If you are heading to a new location, know the major intersection as well as the address for a Brampton Transit employee to be able to assist with directions. As well, you may plan your trip online or call the Brampton Transit Contact Centre to assist.
To ensure you catch your bus arrive at least 5 minutes early to the bus stop.
If others are waiting for the bus before you, line up behind them and allow them to enter the bus first.
Allow people exiting to get off the bus first before entering.
Please stand behind the Operator and refrain from lengthy conversations with them. Move to the back of the bus and have a seat or find a place to stand.
The front seats are reserved for priority seating, for people with disabilities, seniors, and expectant mothers. Please vacate your seat for someone in need.
Remove your backpack when on the bus and place all your belongings in your lap or on the floor – do not take up the seat.
Use headphones when listening to music or on a phone call and keep the volume down.
Take your garbage with you and exit through the back door.
