|On September 4, 2001, Ajax-Pickering Transit Authority was created when the Town of Pickering and the Town of Ajax
voted to merge their respective services (Ajax Transit and Pickering Transit) into one entity. APTA had a relatively short
life, however. With the pressure of the Ontario Government, on January 1, 2006, APTA merged with the other services
of Durham Region; Whitby Transit, Oshawa Transit, and Clarington Transit to form what is now Durham Region Transit.
