The Yonge St. vivaNext Bus Rapidway Opens for Service Soon

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.
