Warden Station undergoing adjustments

Contractors will begin making adjustments to the prototype vivastation along the rapidway located at Warden Avenue and Enterprise Boulevard in Markham.

How will this affect Viva rapid transit services?

Starting August 19, the Viva rapid transit service will pick up passengers at the temporary vivastations located on the north and south sides of Enterprise Blvd.

When will Warden Station reopen for Viva service?

Warden Station will reopen for Viva service in approximately 2 weeks – as soon as contractors have completed the work.

What changes are being made at Warden Station?

As the prototype rapidway vivastation, various adjustments are being made including some surface materials.

Will ticket machines and PRESTO be available at the temporary vivastations?

  • The ticket machines at the vivastations along Enterprise Blvd. are available for use.
  • For PRESTO transactions, customers may continue to use the equipment in its current location at Warden Station.

Will this work affect traffic or sidewalks in the area?

  • No lane closures or sidewalk detours are expected on Warden Ave. or Enterprise Blvd. as part of this work.
  • Warden Station will be a construction zone, with a fence around the work area for the safety of pedestrians.
  • Viva vehicles will travel in mixed traffic on Warden Ave. and Enterprise Blvd. instead of along the rapidway.
  • The dedicated transit signal will be turned off during this time.

Please Note: As with all construction projects, work may need to be rescheduled due to weather. We’ll provide advance notice whenever possible.

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!
