Welcome to the Brantford Lift website.
To book a ride, please call 519-752-4444
All fees are correct as of April 1, 2016. Cash Fare payable with exact change. No bills or pennies are accepted. Drivers do not carry change.
B-Card orders can be placed directly with dispatchers.
The B-Card is an interactive smart card and is part of our new on-board fare collection system that Brantford Transit launched in December 2007. The B-Card is the same size as a debit or credit card. Drivers of Brantford Lift will have portable hand handle readers, customers simply hold the card over the tag zone to pay the fare. The portable reader recognizes what type of fare or pass is on the card and approves or denies the ride, electronically, in about a second.
Once you buy your first B-Card, you keep using the same card, week after week, month after month. Value is added to the card by either Brantford Transit staff located at the Customer Service Kiosk at the downtown terminal (64 Darling Street, phone 519-756-5011), or your Brantford Lift driver will be able to reload your B-Card. The value that you wish to purchase will be added to your card at that time.
The new B-Card works by “passing” it over the B-Card tag zone area on the new fareboxes, that says “touch here”, in order for the tag zone reader to recognize your card.
There are three types of B-Cards used by Brantford Lift:
A disposable B-Card (can be filled with 2-10 rides): $2.90 per ride, Child at $1.70 per ride
A multi-value refillable B-Card requires a one-time $5.75 admin fee. A charge of $5.75 for replacement of lost or damaged cards.)

A 31 Day B-Card provide a cardholder with unlimited rides for 31 days from first day used, days are count even if pass is not used. Passes require a one-time $5.75 administration fee. A charge of $5.75 applies for the replacement of lost or damaged cards.
We encourage clients to book return trips at the same time as booking outgoing trips. This allows us the ability to plan trips efficiently, providing better service for our clients.
A “no show” is a passenger who is not at the scheduled pick up location at the scheduled time. If your are a “no show”, your return trip will be automatically cancelled. If we experience a high number of “no shows” or “cancelations at the door” service maybe denied for a period of time.
