Brampton Transit offering half-price fares,
joined Peel affordable transit program, May 1



Since Tuesday, May 1, Brampton Transit has been participating in the Region of Peel’s Affordable Transit Program.

The program is a partnership between the region, the City of Brampton and the City of Mississauga to offer a 50-percent discount off the regular cost of a monthly pass to lower-income residents.

Brampton residents earning an income below a certain level may apply for the discount by visiting www.peelregion.ca/affordabletransit. Program staff accept applications on a “first-come, first-serve” basis.

If the region approves your application, you would pay just $62 for an adult monthly Brampton Transit pass or just $26 for a senior pass.


The Region of Peel piloted this affordable transit pass program for MiWay passengers from June, 2016. This year, the program became permanent.

Other local transit agencies also provide discounts for low-income residents.


Who can apply?

To apply for a transit discount in Brampton, you must:

  • be a Canadian citizen, a landed immigrant, or a newcomer who has applied for permanent residency, sponsorship, or refugee protection in Canada;
  • live in Brampton; and
  • have an after-tax household income that is equal to or lower than


Household sizeAfter-tax household income
1 person $22,133
2 persons $31,301
3 persons $38,335
4 persons $44,266
5 persons $49,491
6 persons $54,215
7 persons $58,558



How to apply

To apply, you need a PRESTO fare card and must register it on-line at www.prestocard.ca. If you do not have a card, you can by one at any Brampton Transit terminal or facility or on-line at www.prestocard.ca

You must register your card before applying to the program. Brampton Transit can’t apply the discount to unregistered cards.

You’ll also need the most recent notice of assessment (or NOA) from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for yourself (and all people that you’re applying for) older than 18 years of age. (CRA is the Government of Canada agency that collects your income taxes.) If you do not have your NOA, ask CRA to replace it by calling 1-800-959-8281 or contact the Region of Peel at 905-791-7800 for help.

If you are a newcomer and have not filed your income taxes, instead of an NOA, you may submit one of these documents:

  • confirmation of permanent residence document;
  • protected person status document; or
  • refugee protection claimant document.

You’ll also need to submit a document supporting your income, such as a:

  • resettlement plan;
  • statement showing support from Ontario Works, Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or a federal/private sponsor; or
  • pay stub/letter from your employer detailing your wage.

How to use the pass

Once you have completed your application and submitted all the necessary documents, you’ll receive an e-mail approving you into the program (or denying your application, if you’re not eligible) from the Region of Peel within 15 business days. The discount is valid for 12 months from the date you receive approval confirmation. Once the approval period ends, the cost of the monthly transit pass will return to full price. To continue to receive the subsidy, you will have to reapply.

Bring your registered PRESTO card to any Brampton Transit terminal or facility. After staff have loaded the discount on your card, you may then buy your monthly pass at the discounted rate at any Brampton Transit location, or online at www.prestocard.ca.

The discounted transit pass is only valid on Brampton Transit. When you tap your card on a Brampton Transit bus, you can transfer to other buses for as long as two hours after you boarded the first bus. However, if you travel outside Brampton with a transit pass, and your two-hour transfer has expired, you must pay the full fare of the other service provider with cash or by using your PRESTO card balance for the return trip. You can only receive a discounted pass for the city in which you live, meaning you can’t enjoy a discount for both Brampton Transit and MiWay or any other local transit agency such as GO Transit, TTC or York Region Transit.
