Date Unknown

In the early 1980s, when Allen Road is extended north to meet Dufferin Street in the Overbrook area, Wilson Heights is made to end in a cul-de-sac just south of Overbrook. As a result of this, WILSON HEIGHTS buses now use Kennard (one block south of Overbrook) to connect in both directions between Wilson Heights and Dufferin/Allen Road.

July 26, 1982

Glen Shields loop expanded, with buses continuing north and east on Glen Shields to Dufferin. No change in destination signs.

September 6, 1983

Monday through Friday service through the Alness Industrial Area is replaced by the new 117 ALNESS route. All buses operating to and from Glen Shields now run via Dufferin Street. Saturday service via Alness to Steeles remains unchanged.
