Highway 7 East / Markham and Richmond Hill

The second phase of York Region’s rapid transit future [rapidways] is now a reality, and we couldn’t be prouder!

With our first complete Bus Rapid Transit segment now open for service along Highway 7 East [from Bayview Avenue to Warden Avenue], our region is moving ahead as planned with our commitment to making it easier for everyone to get around.

You know it looks great, but even better, taking transit across York Region is now easier, faster and more reliable. It’s no wonder ridership is already up 10% and customers’ average commute time is 35% shorter than their previous commute.

And this is just the beginning! Imagine a future where it’s easy to get all around York Region on transit, with convenient, reliable Viva rapid transit service – moving you quickly and comfortably while avoiding traffic congestion. That future is already on the way, with vivaNext projects currently under construction along Highway 7 West, north along Yonge Street and across Davis Drive in Newmarket.

The transit network across the GTHA is getting better and stronger, too. Connections to the TTC’s Spadina Subway at the VMC will be ready for customers in 2017. Links to the GO Transit system are also being expanded through Regional Express Rail projects, and convenient commuter parking lots are in the works.
