Project Overview

The City of Brandon is developing a comprehensive public transit review and long-term plan to better understand how transit could most effectively serve local travel needs and mobility patterns. The study will help shape recommendations for short, medium and long-term changes to the transit system to better support the mobility needs of the community.

Today, Brandon Transit stands as a pillar of public transportation that connects residents to vital economic, social, educational, and recreational opportunities. However, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, along with changing demographics and travel patterns in Brandon, have underscored the necessity for a thoughtful reevaluation and redesign of our transit system to better serve the diverse and growing needs of our community.

The Brandon Transit Route Planning and Long-Term Strategy will involve outreach to residents, businesses, and active and interested community groups to determine how transit services could best be delivered in the future to serve local needs in a cost-effective and sustainable way.

Currently, in its initial phase, this project is on track for completion by Winter 2024, marking a significant milestone in our journey toward a more accessible and adaptable public transit network for Brandon.


Get Involved

The project team is currently collecting information on public transit needs and opportunities the information collected will help shape recommendations for short, medium and long-term changes to the transit system to better support the mobility needs of the community.

To ensure that the project team can hear from as many residents, employees, and visitors of Brandon as possible, public engagement will be taking place in-person and online between May 06 to May 26, 2024. In addition to the online survey the consultant team will also be engaging with key stakeholders in the health, social service, environmental, education fields as well as with major employers in Brandon.


Project Objectives

The Route Planning and Long-Term Strategy for the City of Brandon is not just about mapping out current transportation patterns; it’s a comprehensive approach to envisioning a future where transit services are both inclusive and innovative. Our goals extend beyond a general assessment; we aim to:

  • Evaluate our existing transit system, encompassing both standard and specialized services.
  • Create a progressive vision for transit enhancements that resonate with the City’s resonate with the City’s Climate Action Plan and other related municipal policies and plans.”
  • Engaging the community to ensure that this vision is reflective of their changing needs.
  • Develop a detailed implementation plan that outlines how to achieve this vision.

The insights and feedback from this outreach will be pivotal in crafting service options that resonate with our community’s aspirations. These options will be shared with the public in Fall 2024, inviting further contributions and perspectives. Following this process, our team will create and finalize a draft route planning and long-term strategy with key stakeholders and bring them back to the community for feedback in Fall 2024. 

Stay tuned for upcoming details and additional opportunities to engage with us on this exciting journey toward a transformed transit system in Brandon!
