401 Brother Andre School Special is a school route operated by YRT in Markham, ON. This is the 2nd and current iteration of route 401.

Route Details

The current routing of route 401.

AM: This route follows the same routing as route 14 east from 14th/McCowan to Copper Creek Dr., then goes north on Box Grove Bypass to Church St., then follows the Cornell Rouge detour routing used on route 18, then west on 16th to the school.
PM: Reverse routing.

History

  • February 2009 - Route 401 started service. Originally, students would use route 85 (now route 16) and transfer at the hospital to route 2A (now route 14). However, route 2A buses would usually skip the hospital stop because they were full from students attending Markham District. By having the dedicated bus to complete the full journey, it skipped the transfer at the hospital and saved nearly 40 minutes of travel time for students south of Highway 7.
