History

  • October 19, 2009 to November 21, 2009[1] - Route was split in two in hopes of improving route reliability. The eastern portion ran from Neville Park to Shaw, and the western portion from Long Branch to Parliament. The two sections overlapped for four kilometers between Shaw and Parliament. However the experiment proved a failure, and the route was reverted back to its original form.
  • February 1, 2016 - Route is split in two at Humber Loop in order to provide a more reliable service west of Humber Loop and to reduce the amount of short turns.
