History

Service was contracted out to the Toronto Transit Commission by Markham Transit. This involved the TTC operating the buses and collecting the fares but Markham 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 Markham fare was required if the entire trip was north of Steeles. When Markham Transit was acquired by York Region Transit, the contract was picked up as well with similar conditions.

Route 17A was declared fully accessible in December 2012.

As part of the 2015 Annual Service Plan, route 17A was extended north to Highway 7 on July 27, 2015 to provide service to the Downtown Markham area and the new residential developments in the area of Birchmount Road and Highway 7.

On March 30, 2017, the northern on-street loop was modified to have buses now loop clockwise via Rougeside Promenade, Uptown Drive, and Highway 7 due to a left-turn restriction on Highway 7.

Vehicles

Buses that can appear on 17A Birchmount include the Nova Bus LFS SmallAccessible.gif and Nova Bus LFS Artic SmallAccessible.gif from TTC McNicoll Division.
