Brampton Transit (BT) is public transport bus operator for the City of Brampton in the Regional Municipality of Peel, and within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in Ontario, Canada. Brampton Transit began operations in 1974.[1]

In May 2005, a major upgrade occurred that put more routes into a grid pattern. In 2006 Brampton Transit became Canada's fastest-growing transit system in terms of ridership. Over 10 million riders used Brampton Transit in 2006, marking a 12.4 percent increase over 2005 levels and shattering all previous ridership records for the city.[1] The transit system is headed by Transit Executive Director Sue Connor. In 2010, Brampton Transit introduced Züm, a bus rapid transit route running along Queen Street and Highway 7 from downtown Brampton to York University, along Main Street from Sandalwood to Square One in Mississauga and along Steeles from Brampton Gateway Terminal to Humber College.

Connections[edit]

Brampton Transit is connected with Mississauga Transit to the south, and routes along main corridors serve features in both cities, such as Sheridan College (Brampton Campus), and industrial, commercial, and retail centres. It connects to York Region Transit to the east via the Queen Street-Highway 7 corridor and Toronto Transit Commission to the southeast. When the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre and York University subway stations open in late 2016, Brampton Transit will have a direct connection with the Toronto rapid transit system.

Steeles Avenue, once the boundary between the former Toronto and Chingacousy townships, is a major Brampton thoroughfare. Route 11 runs west of Brampton Gateway at Hurontario Street, and eastward into Toronto to Humber College's Main Campus. There is a transfer at the college with Route 50, that serves developments in the Gore Road area near the former Highway 50, or Albion Road. In September 2007, the section west of Brampton Gateway became Route 51. It connects with Mississauga Transit at Mississauga Road and Meadowvale Blvd.

Brampton Transit carries commuters to and from the Georgetown line railway station operated by GO Transit. There are transfers to and from the trains and buses at the Bramalea, Brampton, and Mount Pleasant (opened February 2005) stations, and direct connections to express buses at Bramalea City Centre and Trinity Common, and adjacent stop at Brampton Gateway.

Bus rapid transit[edit]

Main article: Züm

Züm is Brampton's bus rapid transit system.[4] Its first corridor was launched on September 20, 2010, and runs along Queen Street from Downtown Brampton to York University. Future corridors are planned along Main/Hurontario and Steeles Avenues. Züm received funding from the provincial government in 2006 to begin implementation of this system and an additional federal-municipal contribution agreement was signed in 2008.[5]
