History

Service was contracted out to the TTC by Markham Transit. This involved 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 YRT, the contract was picked up as well, with similar conditions.

Route 17A has been running for over a decade without any major changes taking place to it, other than to slightly modify the frequency.

Route 17A was declared fully accessible in December 2012.

The 2015 Annual Service Plan extends route 17A north to Highway 7, servicing the Downtown Markham area.

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