These routes combined serve the Woodbridge and Vellore Woods communities. They also serve Pioneer Village Station, York University, Colossus Centre, St. Jean de Brebeuf Catholic High School, Vellore Village Community Centre, Highway 400 Carpool Lot, and Canada's Wonderland.

Routes 165 and 165F connect to Viva Orange at Highway 7.

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 traveling south of Steeles Avenue West, 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.

Service on 165D operated to an off-street loop at Rutherford Road. In 2002, service was further extended to a new off-street loop at Major Mackenzie Drive. In 2003, service was extended during summer weekends into Canada's Wonderland, as route 165A.

In September 2005, another new branch was added, route 165F, which also operated to Major Mackenzie. However, it looped via the off-street loop, Major Mackenzie Drive West, Vellore Woods and Ashberry Boulevard. Eventually the looping was expanded north in 2008 to cover Cityview Boulevard and Canada Drive

A new branch was created in May 2008, route 165G, operating during peak periods as an extension of route 165D east to the Major Mackenzie and Highway 400 carpool lot. All 165D trips were extended to the carpool lot in 2010.

Routes 165C, 165D, and 165F were declared fully accessible in February 2012.

As part of a reorganization of route branch designations, northbound service to Canada's Wonderland is changed from 165A to 165C.

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 165/165F Weston. YRT buses operate over the previous route south to Steeles Avenue West, then operate east to Pioneer Village Terminal. Southbound trips before 2pm serve York University before returning to Pioneer Village Terminal, while northbound trips after 2pm loop through York University before returning to Pioneer Village Terminal to head northbound. On September 2, 2018, the route was restructured to discontinue direct service to York University, with service terminating at Pioneer Village Terminal.
