|Rollsigns from Vaughan, ON
|This mylar front and side rollsign set is dated November 29, 1999. Each
sign has 30 exposures. This series was the last to be printed under the
Vaughan Transit name, before it was amalgamated into York Region Transit.
The image of each sign has been drawn virtually perfect to scale.
Their respective sign tags are shown below:
|Transit in the area of what is now Vaughan was, in early days, made up of contracted routes provided first by
the Toronto and York Radial Railway, which provided service along Yonge Street, the eastern most boundary
of the area, between 1896 and 1948. After then, bus service along Yonge Street was operated by the
Toronto Transportation Commission. The TTC in later years, operated other services into Vaughan's communities,
such as the Town of Maple along Keele Street, and Woodbridge on Islington Avenue. Service under the Vaughan
Transit name dates back to the 1970s, with buses operated by Can-Ar Coach Service. They continued service until
January 1, 2001 when Vaughan Transit, as well as Markham Transit, Richmond Hill Transit and Newmarket Transit,
which included the previously run Aurora Transit, merged to become what is now York Region Transit.
