York Region Transit 541-570 is wheelchair accessible.

York Region Transit 541-570 are ElDorado E-Z Rider II buses built and delivered in September 2005. These were the first order of buses for YRT from the E-Z Rider series. This series was to be comprised of 2 deliveries: 541-556 and 573-586. The second order was renumbered to their current 557-570 because of delays acquiring the 2005 D40LFs (now numbered 571-585). This batch of E-Z Rider IIs was ordered to increase service and replace the retiring Champion SoLos.

546, 555 and 557-559 had white Y logos on the sides of the bus after they received the new livery, but were removed after the logos consistently peeled off the bus.

At the beginning of November 2009, North Division's re-liveried buses received full decals and fleet number placement on the upper left-hand corner of the front windshield, similar to the placement of fleet number on the EZ Rider II MAXs. The re-livery work finished with 543 receiving the new livery in August 2010.

Upon 1701-1715 entering service, some units from this series were removed from service and stored (notably all/most of Southwest's units), with some of those stored units retired in Late 2017.

A number of retired units were listed for sale, and tenders for disposal awarded in early May 2018 to Tokmakjian Inc. for 4 units, and a scrap dealer in Port Perry for 10 units.

Around the same time, three previously stored/retired units (546, 547 and 623) were reactivated, re-plated and put back into service in mid-May 2018 due to a community bus shortage in Southwest Division. A few months later, two of SW's community routes, 560 and 561, were converted into On-Demand services effective July 1st, but the reactivated units lasted on other routes including 589 and 590 until retirement a few months later (546's last run in service was in late September 2018, 547's last run was in early December).

On December 31, 2018 all remaining units in North Division were taken off the road. They were replaced with 1801-1826.

These buses appeared on 1 Highway 7, 9 9th Line, 15 Stouffville, 16 16th Ave, 21 Vellore Local, 22 King City, 31 Aurora North, 32 Aurora South, 33/33A Wellington, 40 Unionville Local, 41 Markham Local, 42 Berczy, 44 Bristol, 45 Mingay, 51 Keswick, 52 Holland Landing, 54 Bayview, 55/55B Davis Drive, 56 Gorham-Eagle, 57/57A Mulock, 58 Mount Albert, 81 Inspiration, 82 Valleymede, 84 Oak Ridges, 91B Bayview, 98 Yonge, 99 Yonge, GO Shuttles 201, 203, 204, 222, 223, 240, 241, and 242, 560 Maple Community Bus, 561 Woodbridge Community Bus, 589/590 Richmond Hill Community Bus, and school specials.
