Brantford Transit schedule changes update

Brantford Transit Bus

BRANTFORD, ON – 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.

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.
