Weekly and monthly transit pass
You can load a Brampton Transit weekly or monthly transit pass onto your PRESTO card. When you tap, PRESTO will recognize a valid pass instead of charging a single fare.
Passes are considered final sale and refunds are not offered.
Important Note: You must wait up to 24 hours after setting up a concession fare to purchase a transit pass online.
The current month’s Brampton Transit passes can be purchased up to the 14th day of the month. Next month’s Brampton Transit passes can be purchased as early as 14 days before the start of the month.
Weekly passes are valid Monday to Sunday. They are available for purchase each Wednesday, prior to the start of the new week, until the following Tuesday.
If you have Autorenew set up, 6 days before the end of each month, your method of payment is charged for the value of next month’s pass. After that, the next time you tap your pass is added to your card.

Transferring to/from GO Transit
If you are travelling on GO Transit first, and then transferring to Brampton Transit, your Brampton Transit fare will be free. If you are travelling on Brampton Transit first, and then transferring to GO Transit, the discount will be applied to your GO fare.
PRESTO automatically calculates your discount and applies it to your PRESTO account when you connect to/from GO Transit and your local transit service. Please use the same PRESTO card or contactless credit card when you transfer to ensure your discount is applied correctly.
You have a 2-hour window to transfer at the discounted rate if you start your trip on Brampton Transit - 3 hours if you start on GO Transit.
