200 Langstaff GO Shuttle was a shuttle bus route operated by York Region Transit in Markham, Ontario, Canada.

Route Details

Route 200 mainly served Green Lane, Willowbrook Road, and Langstaff Road.

This route served the Thornhill community, connecting it to Langstaff GO Station.

History

Route 200 provided service to an area of Markham not close to any GO stations (Thornhill). Since Langstaff GO Station is located almost directly underneath Highway 407, it is very difficult to walk to the station. This shuttle provided service into the GO station.

  • September 3, 2002 - Route was adjusted, with service realigned along Aileen Road, John Street, Bayview Avenue and Willowbrook Road. Service to Steeles via Leslie was cancelled. Buses started to serve the northern section of Langstaff Station via Highway 7.
  • May 9, 2004 - Route is assigned the number 200. Service along Aileen Road, John Street, Bayview Avenue, and Willowbrook Road was cancelled, with service starting and terminating at Willowbrook Road and Green Lane.
  • March 27, 2005 - Route was discontinued due to low ridership.

Vehicles

Route 200 was primarily a 30/35ft route, and used Champion Solo, GM New Look, Orion I, or SLF-230.

201 Markham GO Shuttle was a shuttle bus route operated by York Region Transit in Markham, Ontario, Canada.

Route Details

Route 201 mainly served Larkin Avenue, Bur Oak Avenue, Wootten Way, and Parkway Avenue.

This route served the Markham Village and Cornell communities, connecting them to Markham GO Station.

History

D40LF #617 at Finch GO Bus Terminal on route 201.

Route 201 operated roughly on the looping pattern of route 41. It started/ended at Main Street Markham and 16th Avenue, a few blocks from the GO station. Buses follow the 41 loop, divert along White's Hill, Country Glen, Church, through Markham-Stouffville Hospital, 9th Line, Highway 7 and Wootten Way back to Parkway, and a block north on Main Street Markham back to the GO Station, with PM buses reversing the routing. When Bur Oak Avenue opened, buses ran down it instead of Country Glen Road.

  • May 9, 2004 - Route is assigned the number 201.
  • July 2, 2006 - Routing via Country Glen Road is discontinued, replaced with service via Bur Oak Avenue.
  • 2007 - YRT announced that GO Shuttles would allow passengers to get off before a GO Station in the AM, and on after the station in the PM. This allows people to use them as a regular YRT bus. YRT warns that if the GO train is cancelled, or there are no passengers at the GO station, the run will be cancelled.
  • December 2012 - Route 201 was declared fully accessible.
  • 2013 - The 2013 Annual Service Plan originally had the 2nd morning trip discontinued and either the 2nd or 3rd afternoon trip discontinued, however the Cornell Rate Payers Association successfully lobbied against the change due to concerns from connecting GO train passengers.
  • September 6, 2020 - Route 201 was discontinued due to low ridership.

Vehicles

Route 201 saw a mix of 30ft service provided by E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX, and 40ft service provided by New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR and New Flyer XD40.

202 Unionville GO Shuttle was a shuttle bus route operated by York Region Transit in Markham, Ontario, Canada.

Route Details

Route 202 mainly served Rodick Road, Hollingham Road, Carlton Road, and Main Street Unionville.

This route served the Cachet Woods, Buttonville, and Unionville communities, connecting them to Unionville GO Station.

History

Markham Transit operated an unnumbered Unionville GO Shuttle before amalgamation with YRT. It is presumed that this shuttle started operating in 1998, when the new Unionville GO Station opened, which replaced the old station on Main Street Unionville. As such, it was further away from the community, and would require a bus service to connect it.

The route ran from Village Parkway and Carlton, around Village Parkway, Buchanan, Glencove, Hollingham, Carlton and Main Street Unionville to Unionville GO Station, with PM buses reversing this routing.

  • May 9, 2004 - Route is assigned the number 202.
  • March 27, 2005 - The route was restructured to more closely follow route 40 with service on Carlton Road discontinued, and to extend service to the Buttonville area.
  • 2007 - YRT announced that GO Shuttles would allow passengers to get off before a GO Station in the AM, and on after the station in the PM. This allows people to use them as a regular YRT bus. YRT warns that if the GO train is cancelled, or there are no passengers at the GO station, the run will be cancelled.
  • April 25, 2010 - With Enterprise Boulevard open between Rivis Road and Main Street Unionville, route 202 was modified to serve Rivis Road, Enterprise Boulevard, and Main Street Unionville to minimize delays on YMCA Boulevard and Kennedy Road.
  • December 2012 - Route 202 was declared fully accessible.
  • September 6, 2020 - Route 202 was discontinued due to low ridership.

Vehicles

Route 202 saw a mix of 30ft service provided by E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX, and 40ft service provided by New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR and New Flyer XD40

203 Centennial GO Shuttle was a shuttle bus route operated by York Region Transit in Markham, Ontario, Canada.

Route Details

Route 203 mainly served Roy Rainey Avenue, Raymerville Drive, and Manhattan Drive.

This route served the Mount Joy, Markham Village, and Unionville communities, connecting them to Centennial GO Station.

History

  • September 3, 2002 - Centennial GO Station opened. YRT created a GO shuttle to this station from communities that were north of the GO Station and did not have direct transit service or a safe walk to the station.
  • May 9, 2004 - The route is assigned the number 203.
  • September 4, 2005 - As the area south of 16th Ave. was a short walk to routes 40 and 41, who already had a connection to the station. North of 16th Ave., route 18 had a direct connection to the new Mount Joy GO Station, and ran nearby. With these connections also available, YRT cancelled route 203 in September 2005.

In 2009, the number 203 was reused for a new route, route 203 Milliken GO Shuttle. The communities this route served were eventually taken over by routes 42 and 45 in September 2009.

Vehicles

Route 203 was primarily a 30/35ft route, and used Champion Solo, GM New Look, Orion I, or SLF-230.
