History

  • February 13, 2000 - The east-end of the route is changed to loop on-street via Morningview Trail, Old Finch Avenue, and Littles Road. Buses no longer serve the off-street loop on the north side of Old Finch Avenue just east of Morningview Trail.
  • September 3, 2000 - Route is extended from Scarborough Centre Station to Kennedy Station on the new 131E Nugget Express branch to provide relief to the overcrowded Scarborough RT. Buses will only operate during the rush hour and run express via Eglinton Avenue East and Brimley Road to Scaroborugh Centre Station.
  • August 31, 2003 - An express stop is added on peak-period 131E branch at Lawrence Avenue East and Brimley Road in both directions.
  • August 31, 2008 - Route made accessible using lift-equipped buses and is made bike rack equipped.
  • June 22, 2014 - Due to a system-wide reorganization of route branch designations, local branch 131 to Old Finch & Morningview is redesignated 131A.
  • September 6, 2016 - Due to continued overcrowding on the Scarborough RT, express service between Kennedy Station and Scarborough Centre Station is increased with the new peak-period express branch 131F running only between Kennedy Station and Scarborough Centre Station.
  • March 27, 2017 - Supplemental peak-period express branch 131F between Kennedy Station and Scarborough Centre Station is eliminated due to low ridership.
  • November 18, 2018 - Branch 131A is changed to 131. Limited-stop peak-period service on branch 131E is eliminated and replaced with the new route 903 Kennedy-Scarborough Centre Express SmallAccessible.gif.
