Service interlined with the 316 OSSINGTON night bus in order to provide more reliable running times. Southbound trips arriving at Springhurst continue through the Exhibition grounds by running south on Dufferin, east on Saskatchewan and east on Manitoba to the Exhibition streetcar loop, where the buses continue on as 316 OSSINGTON. In the opposite direction, 316 OSSINGTON buses arriving at Exhibition Loop change to 329 DUFFERIN and continue west on Manitoba, west on Saskatchewan and north on Dufferin, following the rest of the route to Lawrence station. When the Exhibition is closed for major events, the two routes are connected via Liberty, Frasier and King to Shaw.

Due to the Dufferin Street bridge over the Gardiner Expressway being declared unsafe and off-limits to motor vehicles, at least until a temporary bridge is opened ahead of a rebuild, service south of Dufferin Gate loop can not occur. However, as this route is interlined with 316 OSSINGTON NIGHT, the route is revised to find another way to Exhibition loop. After looping through Dufferin Gate loop, southbound buses operate north on Dufferin, east on Liberty, south on Strachan and then west via Manitoba Drive and the Exhibition loop access road where the buses start serving 316 OSSINGTON NIGHT. Returning buses proceed out of Exhibition loop and east on Manitoba Drive, north on Strachan, east on Liberty Street, south on Dufferin, then looping through Dufferin Gate loop again before heading north on Dufferin towards Wilson.

April 17, 2014

A temporary Dufferin Street bridge over the railway tracks at the Dufferin Gates is opened to car traffic, allowing service to resume south of Dufferin Loop. Night buses return to their previous routing to Exhibition Loop.

September 6, 2015

Service is extended at the north end to provide new service on Dufferin Street between Sheppard and Steeles Avenue. Buses follow the original route to Dufferin and Wilson and then operate east on Wilson, north on Transit Road, north on Allen, north on Dufferin, and west and north on Gerry Fitzgerald Drive to Steeles Avenue West. Buses return via south on Dufferin, south on Allen, south on Transit Road, west on Wilson and south on Dufferin to the Exhibition.
