York Region Transit 1006-1008, 2055-2060, 9828-9830 is wheelchair accessible.

York Region Transit 1006-1008, 2055-2060 and 9828-9830 were all Champion SoLo buses built and delivered in 1998.

1006-1008 were originally from Vaughan Transit, 2055-2060 were originally from Markham Transit and 9828-9830 were originally from Richmond Hill Transit. All were acquired during amalgamation by YRT in 2001. The Vaughan and Markham units retained their original numbers, while 9828-9830 were renumbered from 528-530 to avoid conflict with ex-Vaughan units.

When initially delivered, they were the first 30ft low floor vehicles for their respective agencies.

Of note, the VIN numbers of 2055-2060, 9829 and 9828 are sequential, as well as the VINs of units 9830, 1006-1008.

These buses turned out to be extremely unreliable. Upon delivery of the SLFs they were mainly relegated to rush-hour service, and were retired at 7 years old upon the delivery of the 541-570 series of E-Z Rider IIs.
