History

  • Early 2016 - Regional Council and the Transit Executive Committee approved this route and many other service changes to be implemented on June 27, 2016. The Regional Municipality of Durham is asking DRT to adopt more of a grid network and add more service on Rossland Road. Therefore, service on Harwood was removed and will now be serviced by the 216.
  • June 27, 2016 - Route introduced as 216 Harwood North; replaced a portion of route 916.
  • March 2020 - Frequency reduced to "enhanced Saturday service" levels following the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • June 8, 2020 Frequency further reduced to Sunday service level, with additional weekday trips.
  • circa September 2021 - Route names eliminated; now solely referred to as route 216.
  • September 6, 2022 - New 216C branch introduced, operating to Audley Road via Taunton; 15 minute peak service restored.
  • September 5, 2023 - Terminus of 216C branch moved to Audley Recreation Centre; two-way service on Williamson Drive introduced.
