You may love Brampton just how it is, but what if we told you there were a ton of improvements to look forward to? 2018 is going to be a year of amazing change for the Flower Town of Canada! The city announced one project after the other for locals to look forward to. From downtown revitalization to transit pilot projects, Brampton is set to be an even better place to live by the end of the year. With more parks, places to live, and things to eat, we can’t wait for the year ahead. Here are some of the highlights to look forward to.
Image via City of Brampton The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change officially approved a city plan to totally transform downtown Brampton. The $30 million project will include reducing Queen and Main Street to two-lane streets rather than four, in favour of widening the sidewalks and adding a separated bike lane. Construction for this revitalized streetscape are set to start in fall of this year.
Dial-A-Bus Pilot Project

Brampton Transit is considering bringing this option back in the hopes of better serving areas of low ridership. You would be able to essentially hail a bus to your location with a simple click or call on your smartphone. The feature would be similar to how UberPOOL works.
Gore Meadows Rec Centre

The massive park is set to be completed this spring and will be on the grounds of the 100-acre park around Creditview Road and Sandalwood Parkway. Residents can look forward to new areas to play and lots of green space.
