Seniors ride Brampton Transit buses for just $1,
starting March 28

Starting next Monday, March 28, when Brampton Transit raises most fares, all senior citizens, 65 years of age and older, who are residents of Brampton can ride any Brampton Transit bus for just $1. (But, you’ll have to get a Brampton Transit senior identification card to take advantage of the new low fares.)

You must be 65 years of age or older and a resident of Brampton to be eligible to receive an ID card. Non-resident seniors, or seniors without a Brampton Transit photo ID card, must pay the full cash fare of $3.25 or use tickets or passes to board the bus.

Once you have received your ID card, you must present it to the Brampton Transit driver every time you board a bus so you can pay the $1 cash fare. Upon boarding, show the card to the operator and deposit $1 into the fare box. If you require a transfer, please ask the operator, when you pay your fare.

If you don’t have your card, you’ll have to pay the full $3.25 cash fare.

If you prefer, you can still buy tickets and passes at the seniors rate.

If you travel frequently by Brampton Transit, a weekly or monthly pass is your best option. Each pass entitles you to unlimited travel as long as the pass is valid.
