Health care The Ajax and Pickering General Hospital (Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering) first opened in 1954 with 38 adult and children's beds. It was expanded to 50 beds in 1958 and a major expansion to 127 beds took place in 1964. The emergency and outpatient services were expanded in 1975. The large growth of population in the Town has prompted a further expansion. Approval was granted in the fall of 1990 to further expand. In 1999 the Hospital merged with Centenary Health Centre in Scarborough (Scarborough, Ontario) to become part of the Rouge Valley Health System. Construction on a $60 million expansion began in 2007, although that has been marred by the highly controversial closure of the 3 West Mental Health ward in 2008, which was originally to be part of the expansion. Emergency services Ajax is policed by the Durham Regional Police from a station in Pickering. Ambulance emergency medical services are provided by Durham Region. Ajax Fire & Emergency Services provides firefighting services from three fire stations. Transportation In 1973, the Town of Ajax conducted a survey of potential transit ridership in Ajax. This led to the creation of Ajax Transit with bus service beginning in 1973 under a contract with Charterways Transportation Limited, which operated service using a fleet of school buses, with heaviest ridership between the Pickering Beach area and downtown Ajax. In the late 1970s, the town brought the operations in house and began operations on the Elm, Duffins, and Beach routes, which exist to this day. In the early 1980s, the Harwood, Westney Heights, and Village routes began service. Service on the Puckrin route began in the late 1980s. In 2001, Ajax Transit and the neighbouring Pickering Transit were amalgamated into the Ajax Pickering Transit Authority (Ajax-Pickering Transit) (APTA), which operated under the joint ownership and oversight of Ajax and Pickering. In 2006, APTA was amalgamated into Durham Region Transit along with the other municipal transit services in Durham Region. Road transportation in Ajax is dominated by Highway 401 (Ontario Highway 401), which runs east-west
