Brampton ZUM is an excellent example of how people are far more concerned about frequency of service than they are about flashy new infrastructure.

York has spent a small fortune on its BRT with little resulting increase in ridership because the service levels aren't there as opposed to Brampton which spent relatively little on its infrastructure but rather put its funding towards service levels.

There’s nothing really to note, which is unfortunate, as Brampton Transit hit an all-time monthly ridership record in October, and November 2022 is well above November 2019.

The only real improvement is that construction at Bramalea GO is nearly complete, and the new Steeles Avenue entrance is open, with a dedicated bus driveway. This allows the Brampton Transit buses on Steeles (11/511) to enter the station easily for the first time, making transfers so much easier.
