History

Vaughan Transit's route 2 was the precursor to YRT route 12. It ran from Islington Loop along Steeles and Pine Valley to loop via Alderson, Aberdeen, Ansley Grove and Chancellor. When YRT took over operations from Vaughan Transit, it renumbered it to route 12 and continued to operate it along the same route. Service was operating 6 days a week.

In September 2005, route 12 was rerouted and extended to Vaughan Mills, which had opened nearly a year earlier. The new route went along Steeles Ave., Pine Valley Dr., Chancellor Dr., Ansley Grove Rd., Langstaff Rd., and Edgeley Blvd. to Bass Pro Mills Dr., where it went around the mall parking lot to reach the terminal bays. In this extension, it replaced the northern part of Vaughan Transit/YRT's route 6, which had been replaced in the southern end by TTC route 37D soon after amalgamation.

Route 12 was indirectly affected by the York University strike between November 6, 2008 and January 29, 2009 due to a high proportion of riders living along the route who commute to York University.

February 2009 saw the extension of a limited-service branch onto Four Valley Dr. to provide a shorter walk for employees.

Route 12 was declared fully accessible in December 2012.

Vehicles

Route 12 is primarily a 40ft route, and uses New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR/XD40. Occasionally Van Hool A330 and/or Nova Bus LFS may provide service.
