COVID-19 Update - RETURN TO REGULAR FARE COLLECTION AS OF MAY 1, 2020

The Transit Information Centre will be re-opened on Monday, April 27, 2020.  It will be open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  And closed between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.

The City of Brandon has begun a unique retrofit of its transit bus fleet in order to be able to return to regular transit fare collection as of Friday, May 1st. All 17 regular buses in Brandon Transit’s fleet are being outfitted with a plexiglass partition in order to create a safe separation between bus operators and passengers at the front of the bus. As of Friday, May 1st, Brandon Transit users will, once again, be expected to board the bus through the front door and present fare for SMART Card or cash fare collection at that time.

Please note, Sobeys West and the Info Centre are currently the only locations open for reloads.

Brandon Transit is asking all transit customers to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Brandon, by following these recommendations to help protect yourself and others:

  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue or cough/sneeze in to your arm, not your hand
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • When possible, practice social distancing (ideally 2 meters)
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer 

At this time Brandon Transit service has not been impacted by ongoing responses to COVID-19 (coronavirus). The entire transit fleet is cleaned at the end of each night of service and staff have been instructed to use additional sanitizing methods as required.

Rear Door Helps

Once you have pulled the cord to let the driver know you want to get off at the next stop, prepare to leave by the rear door. This keeps things moving smoothly.

Route Identification

The destination signs used by the Brandon Transit consists of a route number and area to which a vehicle is going. The destination sign is located on the upper front of the bus and the same tour names listed in the schedules.

How to Ride the Bus

When you board a Transit Bus move to the rear and find yourself a seat (those boarding after will appreciate it).  All buses have preferred seating for the elderly, people with disabilities and infirm. This area or seats are marked by a National Symbol. Strollers and umbrellas should be folded and parcels kept close at hand or under the seat. If you have to stand please hold on to the overhead rails provided.
