Governments of Canada and Ontario Invest in public Transit in Brampton

29 new projects across Ontario to benefit from the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund

In spring this year the Governments of Canada and Ontario announced six newly approved projects that will benefit Brampton under the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF). The federal government is providing up to 50 per cent of funding for these projects—just over $32.4 million.

The list of projects includes significant investments across the City of Brampton. For example, a project to extend the Züm Bovaird transit service along Airport Road will improve mobility, security and reliability on this important transit corridor. Also, a project to expand the Sandalwood Transit Facility will help support the forecasted growth of transit fleet services and improve service reliability. Other projects include the acquisition of 20 replacement buses and three new articulated buses, and the expansion of the automated vehicle monitoring system to most of Brampton’s transit fleet. In addition, the expansion and replacement of transit shelters will improve accessibility and safety for transit users. This will improve transit in and around Brampton and will benefit the entire community.

The Government of Ontario is committed to providing accessible, modern transit infrastructure that will reduce commute times, create jobs and improve the quality of life for Ontarians. Our government is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province’s history.
