Huron Heights Secondary School is a secondary school at 40 Huron Heights Dr. in Newmarket ON. It is located on Huron Heights Dr., just north of Davis Dr. It is directly served by 2 YRT routes and 1 school special.

Since the school is home to an enriched arts program, it attracts students from outside the school, in addition to students inside the school boundary.

422 Huron Heights School Special

Routing Details

AM: This route started at Sandford and Savage, looping via Savage, Shanahan, Savage, and Sandford to Mulock Dr., then goes east on Mulock Dr., south on Bayview Ave., east on Stonehaven Ave., north on Leslie St., and west on Davis Dr. to school.
PM: This route started at the school and headed west on Davis Dr. to Newmarket Terminal, then goes east on Davis Dr., south on Yonge St., east on Mulock Dr., and followed the AM looping on Sandford, Savage, and Shanahan.
This route was unique in the way that the AM and PM routings are mainly different, with the exception of the Sandford/Savage looping.

History

Huron Heights was one of the first high schools to have a school special, introduced in September 2003. Originally unnumbered, it followed mostly the same route as today although it initially had AM service only. In September 2004, it was assigned the number 422.

PM service was added on route 422 in March 2006.

Route 422 was discontinued for the 2013 school season due to low ridership.
