Stagecoach between Kingston and York in 1817
Source: /

The frist stage coach from York to Kinston was on January 4, 1817, operated by Samuel Purdy; the trip cost $18. By 1830, William Weller was offering twice-weekly stage coach service with imported Irish horses.[1]

One of the earlier stagecoach routes was set up in 1817 between Montreal, Quebec and Kingston, Upper Canada; the next year the routes expanded to run from Kingston to the Town of York (now the City of Toronto). A fledging, growing business, the Bank of Montreal opened a bank branch in York and needed a way to pass money and papers back and forth. The stagecoach filled the bill. Leaving Montreal, “every Monday and Thursday,” the stagecoaches “arrived in Kingston every Wednesday and Saturday.” The trips to other branches were longer. Between Montreal and York, the journey occupied at least a week.[2]
