York Region Transit 512, 514-525 were Orion I buses built between 1981 and 1989 for Vaughan Transit. All units retained their original fleet numbers. They were inherited by YRT in 2001. 512 and 514 are 30ft Orion 01.501 models, 515-518 are 30ft Orion 01.502 models, and 519-525 are 40ft Orion 01.508 models.

522-525 could be found on many 40ft routes in Vaughan, including 3 Thornhill, 4 Major Mackenzie, 10 Woodbridge, 20 Jane and 23 Thornhill Woods. All the 40' units were regularly found on the joint BT-YRT 77 Highway 7 for years after the YRT amalgamation.

519-521 were retired upon delivery of the 801-819 series, 522-525 with the 901-945 series, and 518 with the 980-990 series.
