Interior layout of 5201-5225, before refurbishment

York Region Transit 5201-5225 were Van Hool AG300 buses, built and delivered in 2005 and 2006.

The original order was for 22 articulated AG300 units for use exclusively on Viva Blue; this was soon discovered to be inadequate, and was increased to the current 25.

Television screens were installed on all units in 2006, but fell into disuse by 2008. Some units were restarted by 2009, with the new network provided by Byte Media, but they were all eventually dismantled after.

Refurbishment

In 2010, York Region budgeted for a cosmetic "refresh" of these buses beginning in 2011. Refurbished buses received bodywork and repainting, rebuilt powertrain, reupholstered seats, and new floor edges. 5218 was the first bus to undergo refurbishment, returning in September 2011. Work was accelerated during the 2011-2012 strike and completed in November 2012.

Identifying features of refurbished buses include a blue-coloured rear taillight bezels (instead of red) and yellow interior floor edges (instead of black). Some buses also received yellow stop request buttons.

In 2017, 23 units were converted for conventional YRT service to accommodate ridership growth on routes 20 Jane and 90 Leslie. Conversion work included repainting into YRT colours, reupholstered seats, and modifications to the driver's compartment to permit installation of a farebox and Presto unit. Converted units were renumbered to 201-223 by removing the first digit. 5224 and 5225 were not part of the conversion program, and were instead retired and used as parts buses.
