Unionville High School is a secondary school located at 201 Town Centre Blvd., in Unionville ON, beside the Flato Markham Theatre, Markham Civic Centre. It is directly served by 2 routes, and 3 other nearby routes are used by students. Since the school is home to the Arts Unionville program, it draws students from outside the school boundaries as well as inside their own boundary.

1 Highway 7

Routing Details

Regular 1 trips stop at Highway 7 and Town Centre Blvd., within walking distance of the school.

Vehicles

Route 1 is primarily a 40ft route, and uses New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR. Rarely, Orion V may be on a rush hour only run.

414 Unionville/Bill Crothers School Special

Routing Details

This route was basically the same as route 9 (and back then route 15), ending at Markham-Stouffville Hospital in AM and starting from there in PM.

History

Route 414 was a very unique school special; it was unique because not only does it not directly stop at or near the high school it serves the students of (forcing them to transfer to route 1 or Viva Purple), it was one of three routes (the others being routes 413 and 463) that serve two different high schools on the same run. This is made possible because of the earlier point.

Route 414 was introduced in the 2007 school season, after the school board toyed around with the idea of cancelling school buses from the school to Stouffville. However, after student protests this plan never materialized, and ridership on this route remained quite low, forcing its discontinuation in the 2013 school season.

Viva Pink/Viva Purple

Routing Details

Regular Viva trips stop at Highway 7 and Town Centre Blvd., within walking distance of the school.

Vehicles

Both Viva Pink and Viva Purple are primarily 40ft routes, and use Van Hool A330. 60ft Van Hool AG300 and Nova Bus LFX may also be seen on Viva Purple.
