Brandon Handi Transit Has a New Name. Please Say Hello To Brandon Access Transit!

February 25, 2021

Brandon, MB – City of Brandon Transportation Services is excited to announce Brandon Handi Transit has been officially renamed to Brandon Access Transit.  

The process of renaming this service came as the name “Handi Transit” was no longer acceptable, as it was outdated and unsuitable. To come up with new naming options, a committee was given the task to prepare three possible names: 

  1. Access Transit 
  2. Brandon Access Transit 
  3. Mobility Transit 


Through a series of virtual town halls, residents were given the opportunity to cast their vote for their favourite name from November 30 – December 13, 2020. Voting was done via the City of Brandon’s social media channels, in person at the Transit Info Centre, and through email to  

The results were that Brandon Access Transit was selected with 39% of the votes.  

Brandon Access Transit Service continues to provide: 

  1. Door-to-door transportation within the City of Brandon; 
  2. To and from accessible building entrances; 
  3. Call back service for medical appointments only; 
  4. 24 hour message service for cancellations.
