York Region Transit 1003, 1006-1007, 1200, 8525-8527, 8902 and 9707-9708 were all Orion II buses.

1003, 1006 and 1007 were originally from Markham Transit, 1200 was originally from Vaughan Transit, 8525-8527 were originally from Richmond Hill Transit, 8902 and 9707-9708 were originally from Newmarket Transit. They were all acquired by YRT upon amalgamation in 2001. The Markham, Newmarket and Vaughan units retained their original numbers, while Richmond Hill's 8525-8527 were renumbered from 525-527 to avoid conflict with ex-Vaughan units.

When in service, 1003, 1006-1007 and 8902 could be found providing Mobility Plus service. 1200 and 8525-8527 could be found on route 89 Richmond Hill Community Bus. 9707-9708 could be found on 520/521 Newmarket Community Bus, as well as minor routes such as 31 Aurora North and 32 Aurora South
