The route 219 Ravenscroft is a route from Durham Region Transit (DRT) that operates in the town of Ajax. It is operated by DRT's Westney Division.
This route has two branches
- 219 Ravenscroft (Ravenscroft-Ajax Station via Williamson)
- 219C Ravenscroft (Ravenscroft-Ajax Station via Seggar and Rossland)
The route travels north from Ajax GO Station on Westney Road and then travels north-west on Ravenscraoft Road to Rossland Road and then back to Westney. The route then becomes a loop traveling north to Williamson Drive, west to Harwood Avenue, south to Roassland, and then west to Seggar Avenue.
The 219 was a result of route restructuring in Ajax to maintain service levels while long-term maintenance was performed on Fairall Street. The route incorporated parts of the 220 and 240 which used Fairall during the midday. The route was announced on April 27, 2010 and began service on May 3.
On June 27th 2016 the route was restructured to service Ravenscroft north of Williamson to Taunton Road, service was removed from Seggar and service on Rossland Road was replaced by a restructured route 916 Rossland.
Due to the passenger demand service was restored on Seggar in peak periods on route 219C on September 4th 2016.
