York Region Transit route 210 'Lunch Express'
210 Lunch Express was a shuttle route operated by YRT in Richmond Hill, ON.
Route 210 served Beaver Creek Rd., Pearce St., and Commerce Valley Dr.
This route had 1 branch:
- 210 Counterclockwise (Fridays)
This route served the Beaver Creek Business Park. It also served York Square, Jubilee Square, Commerce Gate, and the Town of Richmond Hill Municipal Offices.
Route 210 officially began operations on June 30, 2008. However, its roots started when Smart Commute 404-7 was formed in 2005. The objective of this initiative was to ease the flow of traffic in and around Highway 404 and Highway 7, especially during the lunch hours.
The result was a 3-month pilot project of a YRT bus operating in the Beaver Creek Business Park, connecting with the food plazas surrounding Highway 7. This bus operated during the lunch hours (between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.) on Fridays only, providing service every 15 minutes.
In addition, the uniqueness of this route is that if you purchased a Smart Commute 404-7 card, you may ride this route for free. Otherwise, the regular cash fare of $3.00 (and its affiliates) still apply.
Route 210 was eliminated on December 20, 2008 as it was not performing up to standards.
