History

A300 #511 at Vaughan Mills Terminal on route 760.
  • May 6, 2012 - Route 760 started service, providing a direct link between Canada's Wonderland, Vaughan Mills, and Finch GO Bus Terminal. When Canada's Wonderland is open, route 760 operates the full routing. However, when the park is closed, route 760 only provides service as far as Vaughan Mills. It was initially not operated between January and April, however 2016 saw the first time this route was operated year-round due to increasing demand.
  • December 2012 - Route 760 was declared fully accessible.
  • July 14, 2014 - Initially only weekend and holiday service was provided when route 760 is in operation, with the exception of the two weeks of winter holidays where daily service was provided. This was changed on July 14, 2014, where daily service was added at all times.
  • April 19, 2015 - All service is rerouted onto Highway 407 between Jane Street and Yonge Street due to vivaNext construction along Highway 7.
  • 2016 - To accommodate increased ridership, service was increased to every 30 minutes on Saturday mornings and evenings when Canada's Wonderland opened for the 2016 season, as well as a further increase to every 20 minutes during the summer season.
  • April 30, 2017 - Service was rerouted onto Highway 400 during the 2017 season.
  • April 5, 2020 - Service is temporarily suspended for the season due to lower ridership and the closure of Canada's Wonderland as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • September 6, 2020 - Service is restored. Due to the continued closure of Canada's Wonderland, service will operate between Vaughan Mills and Finch GO Terminal only.
  • January 7, 2024 - Route 760 is rebranded as Route 360 - Vaughan Mills/Wonderland.
