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.

Highway 7 East \ Markham and Richmond Hill

Where east meets west.

Markham and Richmond Hill are becoming key destinations within York Region. The Highway 7 East rapidways that travel through both of these municipalities will connect to the Richmond Hill Centre, a new mixed-use urban centre featuring businesses, homes, shops, restaurants, a 10-acre park, a theatre – and you. This is where the planned Yonge North Subway extension will begin (or end). Pick your ride – any ride. From Richmond Hill Centre you’ll find connections to viva, GO, YRT and TTC.

Work started in the Highway 7 right-of-way in April 2011. The first stretch of Viva rapid transit service launched in August 2013 in the centre median, or rapidway, along Highway 7 from Bayview Avenue to Highway 404. In August 2014, the second stretch opened from Highway 404 to South Town Centre Boulevard, and the last piece to Warden Avenue will open by the end of 2014. Future plans to build east to Reesor Road are dependent on additional funding commitments.
