303 Bur Oak Express is an express route operated by YRT in Markham and Toronto, ON.

Basic

Route 303 mainly serves Bur Oak Ave. east of Anderson Ave.

This route has 1 branch:

This route serves the Mount Joy, Greensborough, and Cornell communities. It provides service to Finch in the morning and to Mount Joy in the afternoon.

History

Route 303 started on September 2, 2003, and was not part of the old Markham Transit. It initially had only 1 trip in each direction. When Bur Oak Ave. opened, buses moved from Country Glen Rd. 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.

On June 30, 2008, the route was extended further along Bur Oak to McCowan, removing the duplicate routing via Stone Mason, 16th, Fincham, Larkin and Whites Hill. The route was renamed from Cornell Express to Bur Oak Express in September 2008, 3 months after the extension. A further extension west to Kennedy occurred in 2009.

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

Route 303 was declared fully accessible in December 2012.

Vehicles

Route 303 is primarily a 40ft route, and uses New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR or Orion V.
