History

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • December 2012 - Route 760 was declared fully accessible.
  • 2015 - Service was rerouted onto Highway 407 during the 2015 season due to vivanext constrction.
  • 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.
  • 2017 - Service was rerouted onto Highway 400 during the 2017 season.
