The new service will have stops at the downtown Brantford Bus Terminal, select stops in Brantford, Hamilton Innovation Park, McMaster University and Aldershot GO to connect with train service. GO tickets aren’t available at the Brantford Bus Terminal, so GO Transit is encouraging passengers use the PRESTO farecard.

GO Bus service to Brantford is projected to attract 1,000 weekly passenger trips.

The only other existing bus option to Brantford is Greyhound, which has two trips between the Hamilton GO Centre and Brantford daily.
