244 Beaver Creek Shuttle is a shuttle route operated by YRT in Richmond Hill, ON.

Basic

Route 244 mainly serves Beaver Creek Dr. and Commerce Valley Dr.

This route has 1 main branch:

This route serves the Beaver Creek Business Park. It also serves the Town of Richmond Hill Municipal Offices.

Route 244 connects to Viva Pink during peak periods and Viva Purple at both ends of Highway 7 (East Beaver Creek and West Beaver Creek).

History

Route 244 began operations on June 30, 2008. It replaced the former routing of route 85A, however routes 25D and 85B still existed with the same routing and therefore provided service approximately every 10 minutes during rush hour around Beaver Creek Business Park.

Due to low ridership Saturday service was eliminated in September 5, 2009, and route 244 was eliminated on February 14, 2010.

The 2013 Annual Service Plan restored route 244, as route 85B was discontinued due to a restructuring of the Rutherford/16th Ave corridor.

Vehicles

Route 244 sees a mix of 30ft service provided by E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX and 40ft service provided by New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR, New Flyer XD40, or occasionally Orion V.
