Brampton Transit 0601-0621 is wheelchair accessible.

Brampton Transit 0601-0621 are Nova Bus LFS buses built in 2005 and 2006. The order was announced at the end of May 2005 and are the first LFSes ordered by Brampton Transit and the first to be delivered in Brampton Transit's new livery with new logos. Although the order was scheduled to arrive prior to September, a delay in production caused them to arrive at the end of 2005 and beginning of 2006 (December/January). Most units entered service in January/February of 2006. When delivered, units did not have a front logo present nor any Brampton Transit lettering. A number of months later (around April/May 2006) the fleet number was moved to the side and a small logo was applied in the front centre.

There is seating for 38 passengers or 32 passengers with two wheelchairs. Seats are in medium blue, with inserts in Holdsworth Fabrics Crescents moquette in blue with custom City of Brampton logo. The rear door are operated by passengers with an infrared sensor which was initially found to be confusing to passengers. These buses sport Thermo King rooftop HVAC units, and side windows are of the tip-in transom design. The buses were delivered with drivers' draft doors.

The oddity of the fleet is 0609. The original bus that was supposed to become 0609 incurred minor damaged during delivery and was not accepted by Brampton. Instead, it was repaired and sold to Woodstock Transit, becoming 06-05. A new 0609 with an out-of-series VIN was produced, and after its display at the 2006 Ontario Transportation Expo, it was delivered and entered service in April 2006. All units have build dates of December 2005 except 0609, which shows March 2006 instead. 0609 also was the only unit to feature silver Alcoa rims, which became standard on the next orders.

As these were the first Novas in the fleet, Nova loaned demonstrator unit 184-1, an LFS, for Brampton drivers to train on prior to delivery. Prior to ordering this series, Nova also loaned an LFS to Brampton Transit.
