History

  • January 14, 2013 - Route 61 was announced in December 2012 and began service on this date. Two morning and two afternoon trips operated in a counterclockwise routing and provided a connection for customers within the Township of King to GO Trains at King City GO Station. It was declared fully accessible.
  • January 28, 2013 - Following customer feedback during the first two weeks of service, route 61 is revised for morning trips to begin and afternoon trips to end at the King Road/Highway 400 Park 'n' Ride. Morning service is also changed to now operate a clockwise looping over the same routing to King City GO Station. Afternoon service continues to loop counterclockwise.
  • June 26, 2016 - This route was converted to Dial-a-ride service only operating during weekday rush hours. All conventional services were removed.
  • 2020 - This route was converted to the On-Request service.
  • January 4, 2021 - Mobility On-Request King Local service is discontinued due to low ridership.

Vehicles

When route 61 was operated by conventional service, Chevrolet G4500 with an Arboc Spirit of Mobility body were used. If unavailable, route 61 was a 30ft route and used E-Z Rider II/BRT/MAX. With conversion into a dial-a-ride only route, any mobility plus vehicle could be seen.
