In Markham, the future of transit has arrived with the opening of the last piece of the Highway 7 East rapidway along South Town Centre Boulevard, Cedarland Drive and Warden Avenue.

On January 4, 2015, the final section of the Highway 7 East rapidway opened for service, allowing YRT/Viva customers to experience truly rapid transit from Bayview Avenue in Richmond Hill to the Markham Centre development area. On the section of rapidway already in service on Highway 7 since 2013, riders are already seeing up to 35% travel time savings. All this goes a long way to improving transit in York Region and providing a faster and more convenient commute. And all of you are a big part of that. Thank you!
