In Newmarket, the future of transit has arrived with the opening of the Viva yellow line on the Davis Drive rapidway. Riders can now enjoy a quick comfortable journey to one of three vivastations at Longford, Main and Southlake, or continue to the Highway 404 park and ride with curbside stops at Huron Heights and Leslie.

With fast, reliable transit and updated utilities in place, Newmarket is prepared for the growth already happening. More travel choices and attractive, tree-lined streets will bring more places to live and work in Newmarket’s downtown. All this goes a long way to improving transit in York Region and all of you are a big part of that. Thank you!
