History

  • September 2002 - Service on route 18 first commenced in September 2002, along Bur Oak Ave. between Kennedy Rd. and the (then) new Mount Joy GO Station. There was an on-street loop at Kennedy, while buses used the bus loop at Mount Joy for the east end of the route. Many extensions followed, as the land to the east was developed. Service first was extended east to Markham-Stouffville Hospital, heading south at 9th Line. Service was rerouted east along White's Hill Ave., south on Bur Oak Ave, west on Riverlands to the hospital. Later, service was provided along Bur Oak between 9th Line and 16th Ave, but a jog remained between 16th and White's Hill via 9th Line until late 2006, when service was finally routed south on Bur Oak to Church. In the west end, the on-street loop at Kennedy was replaced by an extension to Angus Glen C.C. on Major Mackenzie Dr. Initially, service on this route was only during peak periods, but was expanded to include all day weekday and Saturday service.
  • 2012 - One weekday morning and afternoon trip extended south from the hospital to serve the Grand Cornell community during school times.
  • December 2012 - Route 18 was declared fully accessible.
  • January 2018 - The Whites Hill Ave. limited service diversion was eliminated from the route.
  • November 2, 2020 - Saturday service discontinued and weekday mid-day service reduced with On-Request service due to low ridership.

Vehicles

Route 18 is primarily a 40ft route and uses New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR, New Flyer XD40, and Nova Bus LFS.
