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 Avenue 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 Avenue. It was a link from Toronto to the Beaver Creek Business Park, a major commercial destination. Service was increased with the introduction of weekend service and the expansion to all-day service on weekdays. Also, with the opening of the Sheppard Subway on November 24, 2002, buses now diverted into Don Mills Station.

On May 11, 2003, weekend and Holiday service was eliminated and replaced with the new YRT-operated route 90.

On May 10, 2010, route 25D was discontinued with service within the Beaver Creek Business Park fully operated by York Region Transit with the new 90B branch. The last day of service for route 25D was May 7, 2010.

Vehicles

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