  • May 9, 2004 - Route is assigned the number 303.
  • July 2, 2006 - When Bur Oak Avenue opened, buses moved from Country Glen Road onto Bur Oak. Service was increased as more residential units were built and demand increased. As the end of the route overlapped express route 301, it provides a relief to this busy express route.

  • July 1, 2012 - A major realignment of the express routes occurred. Service was on route 303 was cut back to Mount Joy GO Station, with the portion west to McCowan Road covered by new route 304. The portion west of McCowan Road was discontinued due to low ridership.
