Rollsigns from Newmarket, ON
This mylar side rollsign
was created by using vinyl
stickers for each of the
black exposures, and
hand painted "TRANSIT"
expsoures. It has no print
date, but with having the
"North Route" and "South
Route" exposures added
to the scroll, dates
it to after Aurora Transit
was absorbed, which
was on August 30, 1999.

of this rollsign:

Unlike most systems,
Newmarket Transit used
double digit numbers for
their routes in increments
of 11. The system at this
time only had seven
numbered routes, not 77.
Public transportation in the area of Newmarket began with the Toronto and York Radial Railway Company
from 1899 to 1930. The modern Newmarket Transit was operated for the city by Laidlaw Inc. during its
entire operation. On August 30, 1999, Newmarket Transit absorbed the operations of the two route
Aurora Transit system, and over time expanded service to provide better cross boundary service to the town
of Aurora. Finally, on January 1, 2001, Newmarket Transit combined with the other services of York Region,
Markham Transit, Richmond Hill Transit and Vaughan Transit to create what is now York Region Transit.
