History

The origins to route 86 come from Richmond Hill Transit's route 6, and parts of routes 2 and 4. When YRT took over operations, it renumbered it to route 86 and dramatically changed the route. It became 2 branches, routes 86A and 86B, with B only operating during rush hours. Route 86A ran from Bathurst (looping at Castle Rock Dr. and Shaw Blvd.) and headed east on Weldrick to Bayview, up to Redstone, and looped via a large loop along Redstone, Leslie and Farmstead. 86B started at Bayview/Major Mackenzie, and followed the route to Weldrick and Walmer, heading north on Walmer, along May, Yonge, and Palmer to Richmond Hill GO Station. It is assumed the name of this route at this time was just 86 Weldrick, since buses did not operate along Newkirk, the service being handled by 82 Newkirk buses.

  • 2004 - A general rerouting in the Richmond Hill area simplified service on many routes. Route 86 replaced 82's routing along Newkirk, looping through Bernard Terminal, and continued further north along route 84's former looping, route 84 having been realigned to run along Yonge only. Route 86B's diversion to Richmond Hill GO Station was removed, since route 86 now directly connected off of Newkirk. Route 86A's former looping was turned into route 243 Redstone GO Shuttle, operating during peak periods only. Service along Redstone was provided by the new 83A Trench and a portion of Farmstead was serviced by 82's extension to Elgin Mills C.C. Rush hour buses were extended further north to Jefferson Forest, with buses running in both directions along Bernard and Devonsleigh. Service was being operated 6 days a week at this time.
  • September 2005 - With the introduction of Viva and route 84 being removed from Bernard Terminal, service was extended full-time via 84's routing in the Inspiration community and looping along Jefferson Forest.
  • July 1st, 2012 - Route 86 was realigned to run as a north-south route, while removing the routing west of Yonge St, Tower Hill, and Rolling Hill Drs. in the Inspiration community. The route was aligned to run along Red Maple Rd. to Richmond Hill Centre.
  • December 2012 - Route 86 was declared fully accessible.

Vehicles

Route 86 is primarily a 40ft route, and uses New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR, New Flyer XD40, and Nova Bus LFS.
