Lucky number seven.

It isn’t just the Spadina Subway line that’s coming to Vaughan. It’s everyone. And everything. The Vaughan Metropolitan Centre is on its way and that means offices, residences, restaurants, entertainment and busloads of culture. Yes, busloads.

York Region’s easiest, most convenient way to get there? Viva.

Beginning from the Yonge subway linkup and heading westward, this dedicated rapidway will carry riders to their preferred port of call, whether it’s the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, Thornhill or Pine Valley Drive further west or any point between.

Are we there yet? Overall, it’s looking great out west. We started out in 2013 to begin work in the Highway 7 right-of-way, and now the rapidway segment between Jane Street and Bowes Road will be open in Fall 2016, and the segment west of Jane Street will be coordinated with the opening of the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension project. Phase two is coming up close behind, with the main work starting in 2016 in the right-of-way from Edgeley to Helen and Bowes to Yonge Street, opening in December 2020. Further construction beyond 2020 could also be in the future — plans depend on available funding commitments.
