Some evening trips begin at Parkview Village on the 15 Stouffville Local route. These buses travel between Parkview and the Station, where the buses begin to operate along the Shuttle route. (You can transfer between buses operating on the 15 Stouffville Local and 9 Ninth Line routes at Parkview Village.) YRT has scheduled the afternoon and evening shuttle buses so that you can immediately transfer from GO Transit’s northbound 71 Stouffville train to a waiting shuttle bus.

415 Stouffville High School: Starting Tuesday, September 4, YRT buses will operate along this new high school route serving Stouffville High School in the morning and afternoon from Monday to Friday. The morning trip operates from Ninth Line and Main Street Stouffville, then proceeds northward along Ninth Line, eastward along Millard Street and Hemlock Drive, southward along Tenth Line, westward along Hoover Park Drive, south- and westward along Reeves Way Boulevard, northward along Ninth Line and westward along Hoover Park Drive to the high school.

Some evening buses will operate on northbound short turns between Parkview Village and Stouffville GO Station. You can immediately transfer from a northbound 9 Ninth Line bus onto one of these evening short turn buses. These short buses will also continue on the 215 Stouffville GO Shuttle route once they reach the GO Station, so you will not have to transfer to another bus if you want to reach areas that the GO Shuttle bus serves.

The dial-a-ride van will also operate on a fixed schedule to serve the Newmarket GO Bus Terminal and Upper Canada Mall every 30 minutes.
