Revised transit service in Brampton and Waterloo Region,
December 21 to 31



During the two weeks before Christmas, people travel less often by transit. Students are off and many people take vacation days to enjoy the holidays.

With fewer passengers, two local transit systems are reducing and revising their services to save on resources — drivers and vehicles. Brampton Transit is reducing its Monday-to-Friday rush-hour service and Grand River Transit is reducing its services during Monday-to-Friday rush hours and other times of the week.

The changes affect these routes:
