107/107B Keele is a bus route operated by York Region Transit in Vaughan, ON.

Basic

Routes 107 and 107B serve Keele Street between Steeles Avenue West and Teston Road.

This route has 2 branches:

These routes serve the Concord and Maple communities. They also serve York University, Maple GO Station, St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School, and Maple Community Centre.

Routes 107 and 107B connect to Viva Purple at Pioneer Village Terminal, and Highway 7, and to Viva Orange at Highway 7.

History

Service along Keele Street was originally contracted out to the Toronto Transit Commission by Vaughan Transit. This involved TTC operating the buses and collecting the fares, but Vaughan Transit paying for any losses in running the service. A TTC fare was required for passengers traveling south of Steeles Avenue, but only a Vaughan fare was required if the entire trip was north of Steeles Avenue. When Vaughan Transit was acquired by York Region Transit, the contract was picked up as well, with similar conditions.

TTC first began operating along Keele Street to the CNR yard north of Highway 7 as early as 1965, as part of route 41C Keele. With the opening of the Spadina Subway to Wilson Station in 1978, route 41C was replaced by route 107 Keele North. By 1996, there were 3 branches: route 107C operated to McNaughton (presently 107D), route 107 to Rutherford, and route 107B to Langstaff, looping via Rivermede. Routes 107 and 107C combined had service 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, and route 107B provided extra rush hour service to the industrial area at Langstaff.

In 1998, 2 additional branches were created: Route 107F (to Langstaff, looping with 107B) and route 107D (to McNaughton, looping with route 107C). These branches now looped through York University, while the other 3 branches skipped it. By 2002, the D and F branches had disappeared, with all service now operating through York University. Route 107C was extended north to Teston, looping on Drummond and Cranston Park, and route 107B was extended to the new Rutherford GO Station, via Basaltic. Route 107B also had increased service hours, and the 2 routes combined had full service south of Rivermede. In 2003, route 107D was reinstated, looping at McNaughton. One year later, a new route 107F was created, operating during rush hours to Kirby Rd. By the summer of 2006, routes 107B, 107C, and 107F began to serve York University year-round, as opposed to September-May previously.

Routes 107B, 107C, 107D, and 107F were affected by the York University strike between November 6, 2008 and January 29, 2009.

Routes 107B, 107C, 107D, and 107F were declared fully accessible in February 2012.

Route 107F was discontinued in 2013 and replaced by an extension of route 22A King City during rush hours.

With the opening of the Line 1 subway extension to Vaughan in December 2017, TTC service north of Steeles Avenue was eliminated, and YRT began operating the route as 107 Keele. YRT buses operate from Pioneer Village Terminal, through York University, and north on Keele. Branches were simplified, with route 107 operating to Teston during all time periods, and route 107B operating to Rutherford GO during weekdays. On September 2, 2018, the route was restructured to discontinue direct service to York University, with buses bypassing York University to terminate at Pioneer Village Terminal.

Vehicles
