York Region Transit Stouffville District School Specials
Stouffville District Secondary School is a high school located at 801 Hoover Park Dr., Stouffville, ON. Bell times are served by only 1 route, while there are 2 other routes that pass nearby but are not useful for students.
Route 9 stops 1 block east of the school at 9th Line and Hoover Park. No students use the trip because of its short northern leg (walkable distance) and lack of development south of Reeves Way.
Route 15 only has westbound service along Hoover Park Dr., making it useless to students.
415 Stouffville School Special
|415 Stouffville School Special|
|Number of Branches||1|
|Types of Buses Used||EZ Rider II/MAX , Orion VI|
AM: Buses start at Parkview Village, proceed along 9th Line North, Millard St., Hemlock Dr., 10th Line, Hoover Park Dr., Reeves Way, 9th Line and Hoover Park to the school.
PM: Buses follow the reverse routing.
This route provides service to Millard St. and Reeves Way Blvd., neither of which are served by buses excluding the school special.
Route 415 came into existence when the new Stouffville District Secondary opened in September 2007. The old high school was located on Millard St. and served by route 9A. With the restructuring of Stouffville routes, and the removal of 'regular' service on Millard, a School special was implemented.
EZ Rider IIs were used on all trips. Buses are pulled from route 9/15 to provide service. Common driver complaints are that the short EZ Riders are overcrowded by students, but YRT is reluctant to send out a 40ft bus all day to Stouffville for a single school run.
In 2008, the arrangement was changed so that the 410 trip in the AM would deadhead to do the 415 trip. This would most commonly use an Orion VI. The afternoon still used the all-day bus from route 15, which is normally an EZ Rider II.
