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. When YRT inherited operations from Richmond Hill Transit, it renumbered it to route 84 and continued to operate it in the same fashion.
  • May 9 , 2004 - Peak trips to the GO Station were ended. Around the same time, buses were rerouted along Gamble Rd., Rollinghill Rd. and Tower Hill Dr. to serve the Inspiration community.
  • September 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 around in a continuous loop. Service to the Inspiration community was handled by an extension of route 86. When Viva serivce was extended north to Newmarket, buses serviced the stop at Yonge/King, heading north on Yonge St. a little 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.
  • 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.
  • 2010 - Dial-a-Ride service was added to this route to serve on weekdays during off-peak periods and Saturdays at all times.
  • December 2012 - Routes 84A and 84C were declared fully accessible.
  • February 24, 2013 - Elimination of the A branch, with all service now operating on the C branch (now the main branch).
  • 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 5, 2020 - Route 84 was temporarily suspended with On-Request Aurora-Oak Ridges service introduced, operating during the weekdays from 7am to 10:45pm.

Vehicles

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