Brantford provides update to transit schedule

City of BrantfordBrantford provides update to transit schedule

The following update is in response to questions and concerns regarding Brantford Transit’s temporary modified schedule to address labour shortages. During peak morning hours between 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., 30-minute service will continue. Starting June 27, in order to optimize the network connectivity at the terminal resulting from the modified schedule, the North West Industrial area, will run hourly service on this route from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with the 4C route leaving the terminal on the half hour to provide flexibility to users. Brantford Lift and Sunday service remain unchanged. The temporary change only affects service from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday to Saturday, where hourly service will be offered. There is no change to regular routes, meaning once a rider boards the bus, their ride will be the usual length of time. To those that require assistance planning their trip in Brantford can contact Brantford Transit at 519-753-3847 or by email at transit@brantford.ca.

This temporary change to the schedule allows Brantford Transit to provide reliable service to riders so routes do not have to be unexpectedly cancelled due to staffing shortages. If staffing levels are increased, Brantford Transit will return to the regular schedule as soon as possible.

Branford Lift extends service to seniors

Starting, Monday June 27, Brantford Lift will temporarily extend their service to include those 55 years of age and older from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Saturday, without requiring an application. This extension of service will be offered until early September or until the staffing levels at Brantford Transit can be increased. Learn more about booking a ride with Brantford Lift at www.brantfordlift.ca or by calling 519-752-4444.
