History

In 2004, YRT started expanding service to smaller communities that did not yet have access to public transit, other than GO Transit. Before, it's main focus was maintaining and increasing service operated by the former agencies it had acquired, and communities that did not have service before amalgamation largely went unnoticed. One such community, King City, was growing, and now needed required transit service into the community.

In September 2005, service started on route 22, bringing service to the 2 major streets in King City: Keele St. and King Rd. It also provided a link to Viva, Maple, Oak Ridges, and Seneca King and Cardinal Carter Catholic High for students. Service operated 6 days a week from the beginning of service.

Beginning in September 2008, one morning and one afternoon trip was extended to Villanova College at Sideroad 15 and Keele St.

Route 22 was indirectly affected by the York University strike between November 6, 2008 and January 29, 2009 due to a high proportion of riders living along the route who commute to York University.

In September 2010, due to GO Transit cancelling service on route 64 between Newmarket and York University, route 22A was created to fill in service. Service started weekdays with 9 northbound trips and 9 southbound trips. Unlike the previous GO route 64, route 22A did not divert into Rutherford GO Station. In September 2012, due to further service increases for route 22A, route 22 was cut back to rush hour and Saturday service only.

Routes 22 and 22A were declared fully accessible in December 2012.

The 2013 Annual Service Plan had route 22 diverting via Vista Gate, Ravineview Blvd., and Kirby Rd. during rush hours to replace discontinued route 107F and provide more route 22A service during rush hours. It was eventually modified to have route 22A divert instead during rush hours on July 2, 2013.

With the opening of the Line 1 subway extension to Vaughan, route 22A was renumbered to route 96 Keele-Yonge. Route 22 service to St Thomas of Villanova College was also discontinued on this date.

Vehicles

Route 22 see a mix of 30ft service provided by E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX and 40ft service provided by New Flyer D40LF.
