York Region Transit 991-996
This batch was ordered specifically for Community Bus routes, and have a number of different features. They have a modified low-floor seating arrangement to allow for 3 wheelchair positions, and have ramps at both the front and rear doors. Another difference from the previous E-Z Rider II batch is the fleet numbers on this series are in a more bolded font.
These buses operate mostly on the Community Bus routes in Richmond Hill and Markham: 522 Markham Community Bus and 589/590 Richmond Hill Community Bus. They used to be exclusively based out of Southwest Division, however some vehicles were transferred in August 2012 in order to minimize deadheading times. These buses are occasionally used on other conventional routes if necessary.
These buses were all for expansion, replacing the ELFs previously used on community routes. The ELFs went to normal Mobility Plus service.
