Monday to Friday evening service and all weekend and holiday service discontinued. Last Monday-Friday trips leave Wilson Station at 6.20pm via Calvington and 6.42pm via Falstaff. 41B KEELE buses provide service on Calviington between Keele and Forthbridge.

July 22, 1991

Service begins on a new rush hour branch. Buses operate over the regular route via Calvington to Jane and then head north to loop at Sheppard via east on Sheppard, south on Northover and west on Giltspur, providing new service into this area.

During off-peak hours, buses follow the regular route via Calvington to Jane and then head south on Jane to Wilson, looping via south on Jane, west on Beverly Hills Drive and east on Wilson. Service between Wilson Station and Jane is provided weekdays only between 5:30 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. All service on Falstaff is replaced by the new 163 RUSTIC RD route.

A third branch is given a rollsign exposure. Buses on the 120B branch follow the regular route to Calvington and Chesham, looping back via east and north on Forthbridge before returning east on Calvington. This was primarily used by a handful of early-morning trips entering service, as maps indicate that this branch was operated during weekday evenings as the 41A “Wilson” branch of the 41 KEELE bus.

Evening and weekend service is provided by the 164 CALVINGTON-RUSTIC ROAD bus.
