York Region Transit 2053-2054 were Orion 05.501 buses built in 1991 and acquired by YRT in 2001. These buses were originally purchased by Markham Transit, and retained their original numbers.

Both units were refurbished in 2006. During refurbishment, they received their new YRT livery, and had their large front rollsign replaced with a Luminator Matrix:MAX sign.

They were usually found on routes 1 Highway 7, 2 Milliken, 2A 14th Avenue, 9 9th Line, 18 Bur Oak, 40 Unionville Local, 41 Markham Local, and various school specials.

2053 was replaced in January 2011 by 1025-1030. 2054 was retained a few extra months due to the early retirement of 2064, and was eventually replaced by 1101-1120.
