January 4, 1982

A new service established to connect the Sheppard/Highway 400 (“Oakdale”) area with the SPADINA SUBWAY at Wilson, theoretically saving passengers time in getting to the subway, and reducing pressure on the Yonge subway. Service replaces a portion of the 99 NORFINCH route.

Buses operate on three branches. Service on the 116 and 116A branches operate from Weston station to Weston Road and Sheppard via Wilson, Transit Road, Allen Road, Sheppard to Weston Road, looping via Weston Road, Bradstock and Rivalda. Buses on the 116A branch operate through CFB Downsview Mondays through Fridays until 5:15 p.m., and bypass the army base (116 branch) at all other times. Service operates weekdays only.

During rush hours, service on the 116B branch operates from Wilson station via Wilson, Transit Road, Allen Road, Sheppard, Oakdale, Norfinch and Steeles to Jane, looping via Jane, Hullmar, and Peter Kaiser
