Service begins on the 87 COSBURN route replacing the "C" branch of 8 BROADVIEW and the "D" and "E" branch of 91 WOODBINE as well as providing new service on Cosburn Avenue between Donlands and Woodbine.

Buses operate from Broadview station via north on Broadview, east on Cosburn, south on Westlake, east on Lumsden, east and south on Eastdale, west on Secord, south on Barrington, west on Doncaster and south on Main Street to Main Street station. Service operates 18 hours a day, 7 days a week.

A branch of the service, operating midday, operates through East York Acres, following the normal route in both directions to Haldon Avenue and then heading north on Haldon and looping counterclockwise through the East York Acres parking lot, heading south on Haldon and continuing on Cosburn.

This is part of a restructuring of services in the borough of East York that the borough requested in 1981. The only recommended restructuring that was not done was the proposed 70 O'CONNOR extension west on O'Connor to Broadview Station, replacing the 8 BROADVIEW bus entirely.
