History

Vaughan Transit first operated its route 3 on a similar route, along Islington from Islington Loop to another off-street loop at Rutherford Road. Vaughan Transit's route 3A was also operated to Kleinburg (Highway 27). Both of these routes operated during rush hour only.

When YRT took over operations from Vaughan Transit, it changed the route number to 13.

  • 2003 - Service was increased to have midday, evening and Saturday service. Around the same time, looping was expanded around Napa Valley Avenue.
  • September 2010 - Route 13 was declared fully accessible.
  • April 5, 2020 - Due to low ridership, Saturday service is discontinued and peak period trips to Kleinburg are temporarily suspended.
  • September 2020 - Limited service to Kleinberg reinstated.

Vehicles

Route 13 sees a mix of 30ft service provided by E-Z Rider II and 40ft service provided by New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR/XD40, Van Hool A330, and/or Nova Bus LFS.
