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. There was no service on Salem Road between Bayly Street and Mandrake Street. Due to growing demand on Salem Road and Pickering Beach Road, route 224 was created to provide service as an individual service would fall below ridership standards.
  • June 27, 2016 - Route introduced as 224 Harwood-Salem, replacing portions of former routes 224 Harwood and 218 Beach.
  • September 4, 2017 - Route added to DRT High Frequency network, with service every 30 minutes or better until 19:00 seven days a week.
  • March 23, 2020 - Frequency reduced to "enhanced Saturday service levels" following the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • June 8, 2020 - Frequency further reduced to Sunday service levels.
  • September 7, 2021 - New branch 224A introduced during morning and afternoon peaks to serve Southwest Ajax.
  • circa September 2021 - Route names eliminated; now solely referred to as route 224.
  • January 2, 2024 - Branch 224A suspended in order to reallocate service to busier routes; partially replaced by route 227.
