York Region Transit 8505-8506 and 8710-8721 were Orion 01.508 buses built and delivered in 1985 and 1987.

Originally built for GO Transit, they were acquired in 2003, when YRT inherited the Yonge 'C' and Bayview routes from GO.

They mostly appeared on routes 3 Thornhill, 4/4A Major Mackenzie, 10 Woodbridge, 77 Highway 7 and school specials in the Vaughan area.

8505, 8506 and 8710-8712 were retired upon delivery of the 701-730 series, and 8713-8721 with the 801-819 series.
