Markham District High School is a secondary school located at 89 Church St., between Main St. Markham and 9th Line, in Markham ON. It is directly served by 3 routes (all school specials), and 2 other nearby routes are used by students.

408 Markham District High School via Highway 7

Routing Details

This route was essentially a westbound route 1 trip that operated between the school and Finch GO Bus Terminal via Bayview Ave.
AM: There was no AM service on this route.
PM: This route started at the school and went east on Church St., south on 9th Line, and west on Highway 7, following the old route 1 via Bayview routing to Finch Station.

History

Markham District was one of the first high schools to have a school special, introduced in September 2003. Originally unnumbered, it was given the number 405 in September 2004 and renumbered 408 for the 2005 school season. As the route was virtually entirely duplicated by the old route 1 via Bayview, it was eliminated for the 2006 school season.

409 Markham District High School via Bur Oak Ave

Routing Details

This route was an extension of route 18 with a diversion inside Cornell to serve more students.
AM: This route started service at Kennedy Rd. and Bur Oak and followed the current route 18 to 16th Ave., then diverted via 16th Ave., Old Markham Bypass (now Cornell Centre) and Whites Hill, and proceed along Church St. to the school.
PM: Reverse routing.

History

Route 409 started service in September 2004 as route 406, in order to serve the new Cornell community. Since Bur Oak was not fully connected to Church St. yet, the route operated via 9th Line, Whites Hill, Bur Oak, Almira, and Country Glen to Church St. initially.

Route 406 was renumbered to route 409 for the 2005 school season.

As more of Bur Oak Ave. opened, route 409 was modified for the 2006 school season to serve Bur Oak Ave. throughout the whole stretch east of McCowan except between 16th Ave. and Whites Hill, where it continued to divert via 9th Line. With Bur Oak finally open full length in January 2007, the routing was modified to serve Bur Oak all the way from McCowan to Church St.

In the 2007 school season, route 409 was modified to serve Old Markham Bypass and Whites Hill instead of 9th Line. The last route change for route 409 was to have the route start/end at Kennedy Rd., which took place in the 2008 school season.

Route 409 was eliminated for the 2013 school season, as riders can transfer to either routes 410 or 411 at Markham-Stouffville Hospital.

410 Markham District High School via 14th Avenue

Routing Details

This route essentially followed the old route 2A, but diverted to the school via Church St. instead of serving Markham-Stouffville Hospital.
AM: This route started service at Woodbine Ave. and Denison St. and followed the old route 2A via Rouge Bank to Highway 7, then went west on Highway 7, north on Wootten Way, and west on Church St. to the school.
PM: This route started service at the school and went east on Church St., south on 9th Line, following reverse routing to Markham Rd. where it ended service.

History

Route 410 started service in September 2004 as route 407, in order to serve the Box Grove community and to provide route 2A customers a transfer-free ride to the school.

Route 407 was renumbered to route 410 for the 2005 school season. It was eliminated in the 2006 school season, being replaced by new route 2A school special trips (which eventually became route 411).
