Brampton's Züm Buses Unveiled

Posted on April 23, 2010

Züm, the new transit service in Brampton, has announced that it will use Xcelsior model Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) vehicles. Manufactured in Winnipeg, the buses use hybrid diesel-electric technology and, because they are lightweight, they are also 10-15 per cent more fuel efficient than conventional diesel vehicles.

The $285-million Brampton Züm project is being delivered in two phases with the feds, the Province of Ontario, and the City of Brampton investing equal amounts. The federal portion (up to $95 million) will come out of its FLOW program.

Phase 1 includes the construction of three BRT lines with scheduled completion by September 2010, September 2011 and September 2012. Phase 1 also includes significant relocation and/or redesign of two terminals with scheduled completion by September 2010 and September 2011.
