Public Notice of Brantford Transit Route Changes in effect
June – December 2017

Beginning June 5th, 2017, the City will be conducting extensive upgrades to St. Paul Avenue from Grand River Avenue to Brant Avenue. The construction work includes replacement of aging storm and sanitary sewers, water mains – some of which are over a century old. The project also includes reconstruction of the roads, gutters, boulevards and sidewalks as well as features to calm speeds and upgraded LED lighting to meet modern illumination standards.

Please be advised that a detour route has been developed to facilitate traffic flow as much as possible during the construction period though given the typical volume of traffic along the routes impacted, delays are expected. To accommodate the road closures, the current Brantford Transit Route #8 will be divided into two routes. The first Route 8 Holmedale will leave the terminal on the hour and on the half hour, servicing the Grand River, Dufferin, and Morrell St. area. The second Route 8 Mayfair will leave the terminal at :15 minutes and :45 minutes after the hour, servicing the Paris Rd., Tolligate, Woodlawn and Brantford Commons area. Please click on the links below to access the revised route 8 maps.

Route Changes Are Coming

As the third fastest growing city in Ontario and the tenth fastest growing in Canada, the City of Brantford is on a mission to improve our transit service to meet the City’s future growth. Ensuring that Branford Transit and Brantford Lift continue to meet the needs of residents and businesses is vital to maintaining the City’s stature as a destination of choice to live, work and play.

The City has recently completed a comprehensive review and assessment of our transit services, the outcome of which is a new vision and plan that will make our transit services more customer-focused, inter-connected and sustainable. A vital part of the plan’s development involved a six-month consultation process to understand public needs and collect input and feedback to create a customized made-in-Brantford plan.
