25D Don Mills was a base route operated by the TTC under contract YRT in Markham and Richmond Hill, ON.

Basic

Route 25D served Don Mills Rd. and Leslie St. between Steeles Ave., Commerce Valley Dr., and Beaver Creek Rd.

This route had 1 main branch:

This route served the Thornhill community. It also served the Shoppes on Steeles and 404, St Robert Catholic High School, Beaver Creek Business Park, and Richmond Hill Municipal Offices.

Route 25D connected to Viva Green at Don Mills Station, as well as Viva Pink and Viva Purple at Highway 7/West Beaver Creek, Highway 7/Leslie, and Highway 7/East Beaver Creek.

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 Ave., 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.

Service first operated as a rush-hour only branch to 16th Ave. It was a link from Toronto to the Beaver Creek Business Park, a major commercial destination. Service was increased to include daily service by 2002. Also in 2002, the Sheppard Subway opened, with buses now diverting into Don Mills Station. Weekend service was eliminated in 2004 with the introduction of route 90.

On May 10, 2010, route 25D was discontinued, with service transferred over to York Region Transit on route 90B. The last service day of the route was on May 7, 2010.

Vehicles

Route 25D was a 40ft route from Eglinton Division, and used Orion VII.
