Using the Explore Brampton Youth Pass 

Passes provide free access to select drop-in programs at Brampton recreation centres and free access to Brampton Transit services. Each time a pass holder wants to ride Transit or participate in a drop-in program, they are required to present their pass. Each pass holder receives a unique pass with their photo. Passes cannot be shared.  Youth Passes are not transferrable. The photo of the applicant is required solely to ensure that the Youth Pass is not transferred.  Any improper transferring to a third party of the Youth Pass can result in the Pass being forfeited immediately.
