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.

  • April 29, 2018 - Service between the York University Campus and Pioneer Village Terminal is revised to operate via Ian Macdonald Boulevard and Northwest Gate, and no longer using Founders Road.
  • 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.
