History

Service was 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 travelling south of Steeles Avenue East, 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.

Since 1996, route 160 has operated to its current terminus. It looped north and east on New Westminster Drive, east and south on Atkinson Avenue, and west on Clark Avenue, similar to its current loop. By 1998, the loop had expanded to its current one, and now operated through Promenade Terminal. Service has remained fairly constant ever since.

Route 160 was declared fully accessible in February 2012.
