The Rapidway on Yonge Street in Richmond Hill is 6.5 kilometres long with seven new viva stations and runs from Highway 7 to Major Mackenzie Drive and from Levendale Road to 19th Avenue/Gamble Road.
The end of December will mark the overall completion of nearly 34 kilometres and the $1.8 billion investment in the first phase of bus rapid transit in York Region, supporting inter-regional travel across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, including the future Yonge North Subway Extension, GO train & bus routes, and commuter parking lots.
This vivaNext bus rapid transit project is more than dedicated bus lanes, it also includes pedestrian-friendly boulevards, attractive landscaping & greenery (spring 2021) and bike lanes (spring 2021). Bus driver training has begun for the new rapidway. Watch in the coming weeks for signage to promote awareness and safety education.
