History

D40LF #611 at Newmarket GO Bus Terminal on route 53.
  • April 27, 2008 - Route 53 commenced operations. Route 53's predecessor was route 57A's western routing to Newmarket Terminal, which replaced route 66, operating on a similar route to 53's southern portion.
  • August 31, 2008 - Sunday/holiday service was cut to Yonge/Mulock (instead of Weston Produce), which allowed route 53 to interline with route 57A.
  • September 4, 2011 - Service to Aspenwood ended and routing diverted up Woodspring to Green Lane then completing its routing at the Green Lane Centre.
  • July 1, 2012 - Route 53 was not well liked among passengers on Mulock Dr., as many had lost their direct service to Newmarket Terminal and Upper Canada Mall. As a result, route 53 was once again merged with route 57.

Vehicles

Routes 53 saw a mix of 30ft service provided by E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX and 40ft service provided by New Flyer D40LF or occasionally Orion VI.
