History

For service on the same routing prior to December 2017, please see route 22 'King City'.

Service between Newmarket and York University was originally operated by GO Transit as route 64. Operation was transferred to YRT in 2010 as route 22A King City.

  • December 2017 - With the opening of the Line 1 extension to Vaughan, route 22A was renumbered to 96 Keele-Yonge, and extended through York University to Pioneer Village Station.
  • September 2, 2018 - The route was restructured to discontinue direct service to York University, with buses bypassing York University to terminate at Pioneer Village Terminal.
  • April 5, 2020 - Due to the elimination of Saturday service on route 22 King City, Saturday service was introduced. Service was set to operate every 60 minutes from 9am to 8pm.
