York Region Transit 891, 8502, 8602, 8801 and 9001-9002 were Orion 01.502 buses built and delivered between 1985 and 1991. All were originally Newmarket Transit units except 891, which was built for Aurora Transit. YRT inherited these buses upon amalgamation in 2001 from Newmarket Transit. Newmarket Transit took over transit operation in the town of Aurora prior to the formation of YRT. Buses 8502 and 8602 were both renumbered at some point from their original numbers 8501 and 8601.

This series of buses were all retired by December 2010. Prior to retirement, they were found on routes 22 King City, 31 Aurora North, 32 Aurora South, 33 Wellington, 34 Industrial Parkway, 54 Bayview North, 58 Leslie North, 84A/C Oak Ridges and GO Shuttles 222 and 223.

8502 was replaced by 713-717, 891 was replaced by 850-856, and 8602, 8801 and 9001-9002 were replaced by 1060-1064.
