Historical Branches

History

YRT operated an unnumbered Markham Connector between The Shoppes at 404 and Steeles and Markham-Stouffville Hospital, connecting various retirement homes, shopping plazas and the hospital. The connector required pre-booking but had a set schedule, and passengers must also be Mobility Plus eligible.

  • October 29, 2006 - YRT decided to turn the connector into a full Community Bus route, with the Newmarket bus proving to be a success. The section west of Kennedy was cut, to be provided by Mobility Plus, while the section on and east of Kennedy was turned into a Community Bus route, with fixed schedule, regular fare and no pre-booking required. Although the normal numbering scheme for specials in the Markham area is x0x, route 522 was numbered right after the Newmarket buses (520 and 521), in the Newmarket numbering (x2x).
  • 2007 - 2007 proved to be a successful year for route 522, after transferring to full community service, route ridership increased by 771.3%.
  • July 2012 - In order to cut on fuel costs, operations were transferred from Southwest Division to Southeast Division.

Vehicles

When this route was operated by Mobility Plus, ELFs and E-Z Rider II MAXs were the common buses on the route. With the transfer from Southwest to Southeast Division in July 2012, this route is operated exclusively by ElDorado buses of all kinds.
