COVID-19 Updates and Changes

Last updated - February 23, 2024

As part of our commitment to ensure the health and safety of our residents and employees, the City of Brandon is recommending all residents to wear masks at all civic facilities, including on Brandon Transit when feeling sick.  

All 17 regular buses in Brandon Transit’s fleet have been outfitted with an air purification system. This system constantly runs while the bus is on the road and helps reduce germs and bacteria on the bus. 

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 

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.

New Route Network

In 2017 Brandon Transit conducted a review of all routes to ensure a convenient and cost effective service is provided.  The previous network was implemented in 2002 as a hub and spoke model, with a transfer point downtown every 30 minutes. Due to growth and ridership, Transit has outgrown the current network. This new and improved network offers comparable coverage to the previous system, using fewer resources by providing it in a different way

 In addition to the upgraded network, riders will see a variety of modifications and upgrades throughout the system. 

Accessibility Upgrades

Thanks to a multi-level government funded program, in 2019 Brandon Transit started updates to bus stops throughout the city.  

Downtown Terminal

Thanks to a multi-level government funded program, in 2019 Brandon Transit updated the safety fencing along the west and east side of the Downtown Terminal. 

The multi-level government-funded program will also allow Brandon Transit to upgrade the older and outdated Info Center.  The Info Center is now located at 21 8th Street.


People travelling to and from Braecrest Drive, McDonald Avenue, Portola Drive (between 9th Street and 1st Street), Willowdale Crescent (between 26th Street and 34th Street), or 13th Street (between Richmond Avenue & Queens Avenue) have the option to use TransCab.

TransitCab is a supplementary service offered by Brandon Transit to specific areas of the city where Transit service is warranted, but traditional bus service is no longer available.  

- Portola Drive (between 9th St & 1st St)

- 13th Street (between Richmond Ave & Queens Ave)

- Willowdale Crescent (between 26th St & 34th St)

You may have noticed new shelters along your route!  Thanks to a multi-level government-funded program, in 2018 Brandon Transit was able to install 32 new shelters across the network.  Also included in the program was solar security lighting for all shelters to increase rider safety. Upgrades continue with the recent council approval to replace all glass with a stronger more durable glass to help reduce vandalism at transit stops.
