History

Route 61 was announced in December 2012, and began service on January 14th, 2013, with two morning and two afternoon trips connecting to GO Trains at King City GO Station. It was declared fully accessible. Following customer feedback during the first two weeks of service, route 61 was revised to operate in the opposite direction then what was originally operated.

In June 2016, this route is converted to Dial-a-ride service only. All conventional services are removed.

This route was converted to the On-Request service in early 2020.
