When it comes to the future of transit in York Region – it’s coming to Markham this winter with the launch of the third section of the Highway 7 rapidway on South Town Centre Boulevard, Cedarland Road and Warden Avenue.

A lot of activity is taking place as we all prepare for Viva beginning to run in this new section of rapidway. This includes preparing to open the new Cedarland Station, testing of Viva and emergency service vehicles in the rapidway lanes and training of YRT/Viva staff – to name a few.

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!
