History

  • September 2006 - Route 425 was introduced in the 2006 school season to address increased student demand in the Holland Landing area and eliminating the transfer at Newmarket Terminal for students living there. It follows mostly the same route as today.
  • March 23, 2015 - Due to road closures along Davis Drive for rapidway construction, southbound morning service will divert via south on Main Street South, east on Queen Street, and north on Alexander Road to the school. Afternoon routing along Davis Drive is maintained. Also, in early 2015, service between Mount Albert Road and Green Lane is modified to operate southbound via Leslie Street in the mornings and northbound via Yonge Street in the afternoons instead of 2nd Concession.
  • January 3, 2016 - With the completion of construction along Davis Drive, morning service is reverted to operate on Davis Drive instead of Queen Street.
  • September 4, 2022 - Route 425 is realigned to operate morning and afternoon service via Leslie Street through Sharon. Afternoon service on Yonge Street is discontinued.
