“Continuing on our journey towards Brampton’s 2040 Vision and building a Green City, we’re committed to not only providing efficient transit service, but also a reliable alternative to driving,” says Mayor Patrick Brown. “Our goal is to implement free transit for seniors in 2020. Our seniors have built our community, and it’s only fitting that they receive a break on transit passes.”
