87 Autumn Hill is a local route operated by YRT in Vaughan and Richmond Hill, ON.

Basic

Route 87 mainly serves Ten Oaks Blvd, Autumn Hill Blvd., and Garden Ave.

This route has 1 main branch:

This route serves the Maple, Thornhill Woods, Richvale, and Bayview Glen communities. It also serves Stephen Lewis Secondary School, North Thornhill Community Centre, and Langstaff Secondary School. Some trips also serve Rutherford GO Station.

Route 87 connects to Viva Blue, Viva Pink during rush hours, and Viva Purple at Richmond Hill Centre Terminal.

History

Route 87 is the only Richmond Hill-series route to not have a direct precursor from a Richmond Hill route. YRT created this route after amalgamation to provide more service to Maple and Bayview Glen communities, and to serve the new Thornhill Woods community in between. Rush hour service was originally operated.

In September 2005, service was increased to 6 days a week, and buses now operated in both directions through Richmond Hill Centre Terminal. The part of the route between Yonge and Bayview is closely paralled by route 1, and with Richmond Hill Centre close by, it was a surprise that this short leg remained, and buses did not turn back west at Richmond Hill Centre.

Route 87 was declared fully accessible in February 2012.

Route 87 was restructured in the Summer 2012 service changes. The route was short-turned both at Richmond Hill Centre and Vaughan Mills on weekday midday and Saturdays, with service running full route on rush hours only. It was eventually renamed from "Langstaff-Maple" to "Autumn Hill" on June 30, 2013 and had service operate cut to rush hours only between Vaughan Mills and Richmond Hill Centre, with service east and north of it discontinued.

Vehicles

Route 87 sees a mix of 30ft service provided by E-Z Rider II and 40ft service provided by New Flyer D40LF/D40LFR/XD40 or Occasionally Nova Bus LFS or Van Hool A330.
