York Region Transit 501-520 are Van Hool A330 buses built between 2005 and 2006. Originally delivered for Viva service as part of a batch numbered 5101-5160, 20 units have been refurbished and converted for use on conventional YRT service and renumbered to the early 500-series. The prototype, bus 5102/501, was outshopped in late 2012. Refurbishments of the remaining buses were carried out from 2013 to 2014.

The buses are painted in YRT's three-tone blue livery. They have retained the push-buttons for passengers to open the rear doors. Inside, the seats have been replaced with Kiel Ideo seats, which are upholstered in the standard fabric used on YRT buses up to 2009. The operator's cab door had to be removed to fit the farebox and Presto transfer cutter. A Presto reader was fitted on a stanchion just below the windshield.

Note that this is the second use of some of the fleet numbers, which were previously occupied by ex-Vaughan Transit Orion I 500-series buses that had been retired a few years earlier.

These buses are normally found on 3 Thornhill, 4/4A Major Mackenzie, 5 Clark, 7 Martin Grove, 10 Woodbridge, 12 Pine Valley, 13 Islington, 20 Jane, 21 Vellore Local, 23 Thornhill Woods, 26 Maple Local, 28 Huntington, 77/77A Highway 7, 85/85C Rutherford, 87 Autumn Hill, 88 Bathurst, 760 Vaughan Mills/Wonderland, and school specials.

Upon entering service, these buses retired 9931-9933. They also transferred 920-927 to Southeast Division.
