Slipped in as part of a major reorganization of routes coincident with the opening of the BLOOR DANFORTH SUBWAY extensions to Kennedy and Kipling, the TTC established this short shuttle service between Wilson station on the SPADINA SUBWAY line and the Ancaster Park residential/industrial area northwest of the Wilson/Dufferin intersection, including the DeHavilland airplane plant.

As part of this services, buses operate during rush hours only westbound from Wilson station via Wilson, looping via Maniza, Gilley and Garratt to Wilson and return.

To further improve service to the DeHavilland plant, service is tweaked to depart Wilson station between 3:10 and 5:50 p.m. and DeHavilland from 3:20 to 6:00 p.m. Loop also expanded to include Powell Road.

Last day of operation. Due to funding cuts from the provincial government, this route is combined into 120 CALVINGTON, with service reduced to a bus every hour. Service has since increased to every thirty minutes, whenever the subway is open.
