Basic

This route has 1 main branch:

This route serves the Berczy, Markville, and Village Green-South Unionville communities. It also serves Markville Secondary School, Centennial GO Station, Centennial Community Centre, and Markville Shopping Centre. One trip in the morning and one in the afternoon also serve Bill Crothers Secondary School.

Route 42 connects to Viva Green and Viva Purple at McCowan/Highway 7 and YMCA/Rivis, as well as Viva Pink at YMCA/Rivis and Unionville GO Station.

History

Plans for route 42 have existed for many years, always appearing on maps for proposed service changes, but never being implemented. 42 Bridle Walk was approved to be implemented in 2008, but due to limited vehicle resources implementation of this initiative was deferred pending vehicle availability.

Due to The Bridle Walk concerns, YRT evaluated the routing to either operate via The Bridle Walk or make a diversion to service Wilfred Murison Ave. and Stonebridge Dr. Routing via Wilfred Murison Ave. and Stonebridge Dr. would be beneficial since that development is denser than along The Bridle Walk. Also, Stonebridge Dr. is a wider street than The Bridle Walk. However, the intersection at Stonebridge and 16th Ave. is not signalized. There are safety concerns about making left turns onto Stonebridge Dr. This intersection was not scheduled for the installation of traffic control signals, but a traffic study was conducted in October 2008 for the purpose of applying the region's traffic signal policy to determine if the intersection warrants traffic control signals. Prior to implementing route 42, YRT hosted a public meeting on December 1, 2008.

In June 2009, route 42 had started appearing on the TTC ride guides, although at the time this route was not implemented yet. It was finally implemented in September 2009, with the route name being 'Berczy-South Unionville' instead of 'Bridle Walk'. In YRT documentation, this route still had the name 'Bridle Walk', but it was changed shortly after.

Route 42 was declared fully accessible in December 2012.

Route 42 was renamed from "Berczy-South Unionville" to "Berczy" on July 2, 2013.

In June 2016, the Stonebridge Drive segment of the trip was eliminated, instead, with route 42 travelling along William Berczy Blvd. between 16th Avenue and Wilfred Murrison Avenue.

Vehicles

Route 42 is primarily a 30ft route, and uses E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX.
