York Region Transit Flxibles
Units 601, 606, and 908-909 were originally built in 1981 for the Santa Clara County Transit District (SCCTD). Units 601, 606, 908 and 909 were part of a group of ex-SCCTD 870's acquired for use in London, Brantford and Windsor via National Refurbishing Inc., long-term leased for a few years at a time. When the buses came off-lease from their original agencies, they were leased again to Vaughan Transit in 1998/1999 (some with their former leaser's colours and numbers) and believed to have lasted into the YRT era until retirement in 2001 (some may have retired earlier in 2000), at which time they were returned to National, who re-leased some to other agencies.
Unit 907 is ex-Dallas Area Rapid Transit 807, and has different spotting features than the SCCTD units (no top oval window slots in the side windows).
These buses were operated initially by Vaughan Transit (and later YRT), and could be found on routes serving the Vaughan area.
