York Region Transit route 102D 'Markham Rd.'
Also see the TTC route history: 102 Markham Rd.
|Number of Branches||1|
|Types of buses used||Orion VII/NG|
Route 102D serves Markham Rd. between Steeles Ave. and Anderson Ave.
This route has 1 branch:
This route serves the Milliken, Markham Village, and Mount Joy communities. It also serves St. Brother Andre Catholic High School and Main St. Markham.
Service was contracted out to the TTC by YRT. This involved TTC operating the buses and collecting the fares, but YRT paying for any losses in running the service. A TTC fare was required for passengers travelling south of Steeles Ave., but only a YRT fare was required if the entire trip was north of Steeles.
Route 102D is currently one of two routes (the other being route 37D) YRT contracted out to the TTC. All other TTC routes operating north of Steeles (excluding 53B/E and buses looping in off-street loops north of Steeles) had pre-existing contracts inherited from Vaughan and Markham Transits.
Service along Markham Rd. was previously provided by Markham Transit route 9, operating during weekday peak periods only between McCowan/Steeles and Anderson Ave. It was expanded to 6 days a week service in May 2002.
A new branch of route 102 was created in September 2002, and operated to Major Mackenzie. This overtook the service on route 9, which was promptly eliminated. Route 102D buses looped in a parking lot just east of Highway 48 on Major Mackenzie. Northbound buses run along Anderson Ave. (parts of it now renamed Bur Oak Ave. and Castlemore Dr.). Service has not changed much since it was first operated, other than adding more service. Sunday service was added in January 2006.
In late 2007, service was cut back to loop at Anderson Ave. as the parking lot on Major Mackenzie Dr. had become unusable.
Route 102D was declared fully accessible in December 2012.
