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.

A new vivastation is open on Cedarland Drive, walking distance to shopping, major employers and future condo developments. This final section of rapidway allows YRT\Viva customers to experience truly rapid transit, from Bayview Avenue in Richmond Hill to the Downtown Markham development area. On the rapidway already in service on Highway 7, 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!

When weather permits in the summer of 2015, the “BUS ONLY” lanes will have a red top-coat of pavement applied and trees and shrubs will be planted. These finishing touches will set the stage for attractive, pedestrian-friendly urban spaces for generations to come.
