History

  • September 2003 - New school special route is introduced and is named "Emily Carr School Special".
  • September 5, 2004 - Route is assigned the number 461.
  • September 8, 2009 - Routing is revised in the afternoon to operate over the routing of the former Emily Carr School Special route 466. Buses operate the original routing to Islington Avenue and Rutherford Road, then continue west on Rutherford Road, south on Highway 27, and east and south on Martin Grove Road to terminate at Woodbridge Avenue.
  • September 2, 2012 - In conjunction with the restructuring of routes 7 and 10, morning service is revised to start at Martin Grove Road and Woodbridge Avenue. Morning trips now fully follow the reverse routing of afternoon trips
  • September 1, 2013 - Route is revised to start and end trips at Vaughan Mills Road and Langstaff Road, and to provide two-way service along Royalpark Way in order to better accomodate student travel. Service is removed from Martin Grove Road between Woodbridge Avenue and Highway 27.
  • September 6, 2015 - Route is revised to start and end trips at Royalpark Way and Highway 27, and to operate via Royalpark Way, Vaughan Mills Road, Napa Valley Avenue, Islington Avenue, and Rutherford Road. South of Rutherford Road, service is removed from Thomson Creek Boulevard, Clarence Street, and Wycliffe Avenue.
  • September 4, 2022 - Route 461 is extended south via Highway 27 to serve Martin Grove Avenue to Langstaff Road.

Vehicles

Route 461 typically runs with 40' buses, but for a time in late 2018, the PM run would get two 40' units, and later a 60' articulated VanHool 200-series on a regular basis, as the afternoon 461 run would finish its route and deadhead east to enter service on the 20 Jane right after. Aside from the Route 20, the 461 (PM only) was the only southwest-operated route to use 60' articulated buses. This continued until the COVID pandemic in March 2020 when schools specials were suspended due to school classes moving online. By the time schools were re-opened, the run blocks had been re-arranged and this arrangement had been discontinued.
