History

Orion VI #9705 at Bernard Terminal on route 84A.
  • January 1, 2001 - Route 84 was originally Richmond Hill Transit route 4. It ran along its present route to Yonge and King, and went south to Bernard Terminal. Some peak trips also went further south to connect with Richmond Hill GO Station on Major Mackenzie.
  • September 4, 2001 - Route is renumbered from 4 to 84 in order to avoid route number duplication across the York Region Transit network.
  • May 12, 2002 - Route is revised to operate further west on Bond Crescent along Newbridge Avenue, and to divert via Sunridge Street, Brightsview Crescent, and Red Cardinal Trail.
  • September 3, 2002 - Route is changed to operate on Bathurst Street instead of Sunridge Street to improve connections to route 88.
  • May 9, 2004 - Buses are rerouted along Gamble Road, Rollinghill Road, and Tower Hill Drive to serve the Inspiration community.
  • September 4, 2005 - With the introduction of Viva and route 98, buses were cut back to serve as a shuttle to Viva Blue only. Buses now operate in a continuous loop. Service to the Inspiration community was handled by an extension of route 86. When Viva service was extended north to Newmarket, buses serviced the stop at Yonge/King, heading north on Yonge Street to directly serve the shelter, and to loop. Since all of route 84 is inside both fare zones, travel to either Aurora or Richmond Hill is possible on a single fare, making route 84 a good shuttle route to Viva.
  • October 31, 2005 - New limited service operating during the midday on weekdays and Saturdays is introduced to the No Frills Plaza on Yonge Street north of King Road.
  • 2006 - Route 84 used to be operated by Miller's Richmond Hill Division, but as of the beginning of 2006, it is operated by Laidlaw (now TOK Transit) Division in Newmarket.
  • April 25, 2010 - Dial-a-Ride service was introduced to this route during weekday off-peak periods and all day on Saturdays when ridership is low.
  • December 2012 - Routes 84A and 84C were declared fully accessible.
  • February 24, 2013 - Branch 84A (counterclockwise) is eliminated with all service operating on the C branch, redesignated from 84C to 84. Service on Coons Road formerly operated by branch 84A is now served by school special route 429. Also, due to the redevelopment of Lake Wilcox Park requiring the permanent closure of Olde Bayview Avenue, service between North Lake Road and Sunset Beach Road is instead rerouted via Bayview Avenue and Bayview Park Lane.
  • 2014 - The 2014 Annual Service Plan will have the weekday peak period frequency adjusted from every 17 minutes to every 34 minutes and midday and evening frequency adjusted from every 40 minutes to every 50 minutes.
  • April 20, 2014 - Dial-a-Ride service during weekday middays is extended to serve Seneca College King Campus.
  • November 1, 2015 - Limited school trips serving Cardinal Carter Catholic High School will no longer loop within the school property. Buses will instead serve the school at on-street stops on Bloomington Road at Academy Drive. Dial-a-Ride service during weekday midday and evenings, and on Saturdays is revised to serve all YRT/VIVA stops within a boundary instead of only along this route.
  • April 5, 2020 - Route 84 was temporarily suspended with On-Request Aurora-Oak Ridges service introduced, operating during the weekdays from 7am to 10:45pm.
  • September 3, 2023 - Route will not return to service and is permanently discontinued. Service will be redistributed to other routes with growing traveler demand. All service in the region will be served by On-Request Aurora-Oak Ridges.

Vehicles

Route 84 was primarily a 30ft route and used E-Z Rider II BRT/MAX buses.
