Operator training begins on viva rapidway at Enterprise Boulevard

YRTViva will begin training operators of viva vehicles on the new rapidway along Enterprise Boulevard near Warden Avenue. Training will allow operators to practice approaching and stopping at the new vivastation and try the new onboard systems.

When will training start?

Training begins February 16, and will take about 4 weeks to complete. Daily training schedule runs from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Where should I wait for viva?

Please continue to use the existing viva stops on Enterprise Boulevard. Once the driver training is complete, we will announce the opening of the new station.

What impact will there be?

Some changes to traffic flow have been made at the intersection, including:

  • No turning right on a red light from westbound Enterprise to northbound Warden.
  • Only one left-turn lane exists from westbound Enterprise to southbound Warden.
  • Drivers on Rouge Valley must stop at the designated location (behind the rapidway lanes) to activate the traffic signal change and to avoid conflict with viva buses travelling on the rapidway.
  • There is a new traffic signal added for viva buses using the rapidway. Be sure to wait for the green light for vehicles before proceeding through the intersection.

These changes are now being studied to determine if other refinements are required at the intersection.

more than just a rapidway
rebuilding Davis from the ground up
Davis Drive is approaching its final year of construction and we thank you for bearing with us as we work hard to transform Davis Drive.

construction is challenging
Completely rebuilding Davis is a challenging and complex project that required replacing and relocating outdated utilities and infrastructure under and above ground, before road widening could begin.

what’s to come
Substantial work above ground is underway. Here’s a snapshot of how work is progressing.

 

  • Construction of the vivastation at Parkside/Longford and Davis is underway.
    The steel structure and glass canopy shelter will arrive later this fall.
  • Construction of two more vivastations at Main and Southlake Hospital
    will also begin later this year.
  • The reconstruction of the Keith Bridge will be completed this fall.

viva is coming to davis – dec. 2015
In addition to having a centre-lane bus rapidway, Davis will have wider sidewalks, green open spaces and dedicated left-turn lanes at each intersection that will improve overall traffic flow. All these changes will make Davis an even greater destination to live, work, shop and play.
