Jump to navigation Jump to search

North Division is one of four YRT operational divisions. This division covers the towns of Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King and Newmarket, with some service extending into Richmond Hill, Toronto and Vaughan.

The current contractor for the North division is TOK Transit Ltd., who obtained the contract on January 26, 2012. TOK Transit is a subsidiary of Tokmakjian, who was the former contractor for YRT's Southwest division. The contract with First Student, who had held the contract for northern operations dating back to Newmarket Transit, was terminated on January 16, 2012, after 85 days of prolonged labour action.[1]

Operations are based out of the region-owned facility on Yonge St. north of Aspenwood Dr. GO Transit's Newmarket garage. Prior to the change in contract, this location was used as the northern garage for the BRT division, operating Viva Blue service until the Richmond Hill BRT facility was opened in June 2015. The former Newmarket GO Transit garage was purchased by York Region Transit in 2015 after GO moved to a new facility in East Gwillimbury. North division currently operates out of its previous garage and GO Transit's old Newmarket garage. First Student operated the contract from their yard at Mulock Dr. and Kent St.
