The service is using high-end Belgian-built Van Hool buses referred to as "rapid transit vehicles" (RTVs), which make use of existing or specially-lengthened right-turn lanes to move through an intersection ahead of traffic. They are given priority at traffic signals. Viva buses run 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, from 5:30 am to midnight on weekdays, 6:30 am to midnight on Saturdays and 8:00 am to midnight on Sundays. During peak hours (6:30 am - 9:00 am and 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm), buses arrive every three to ten minutes depending on the route and less than 15 minutes for off peak hours.

During Viva's next phase, the service is to incorporate dedicated "transitways" at the centre of the street, separated from regular traffic. A later phase may incorporate some form of light railway, or an extension of the Toronto's subway lines, but the plan will need to be re-evaluated at this point to determine whether such service is indeed warranted. This article is about light rail systems in general. ...


Viva is operated by 4286847 Canada Incorporated (known in promotional material as the "York Region Rapid Transit Corporation") on behalf of York Region. The system is operated by Connex, a division of Veolia Transport.

Stops along the routes are referred to as "Vivastations", and incorporate a ticket vending machine and a ticket validator (fares are on a proof-of-payment basis to speed up boarding times), as well as a real-time "smart" display that notify passengers when the next vehicle is expected to arrive. Most Vivastations are blue, but several stops on Yonge Street have a unique bronze design referred to as "vivavintage" in order to better suit the historic areas, especially along Yonge Street in Thornhill, Richmond Hill, and Aurora where space is short, and will be served by miniature "vivamicro" stations.

Viva routes connect to Toronto Transit Commission's Yonge, Spadina, and Sheppard subway lines, and to a number of Toronto bus routes. Viva is integrated with YRT's existing bus network, and passengers are able to pay one fare to use both Viva and the regular bus system. Viva is not, however, integrated with the region's GO train network, and only one of York Region's fourteen GO stations is served by Viva.[1] It has been suggested that TTC Special Constable Services be merged into this article or section. ...

On March 31, 2005, at the Regional Municipality of York Council meeting, the contract for the operations and maintenance of the entire Viva’s fleet for its first five years of service was approved to be awarded to Connex Canada.

Viva managers are concerned over the fate of later expansion because of the lack of committed funds for growth of the service. Both the federal and provincial governments have pledged funds for the expansion, but there is a concern that the funds will not be available. York Region officials have said they will scale down service if the funds are not forthcoming, but they are concerned that service reductions would impair the success of the service.

*The proposed extension of the Spadina line of the Toronto subway would run from Vaughan Corporate Centre to Downsview Station. A subway will provide new transit capacity in the western reaches of York Region and relieve some of the crowding on the Yonge Street line by giving York residents an alternative to accessing the subway at Finch. The extended subway line will make for smoother connections with Viva, getting people to work or play sooner. It is also anticipated to encourage development at Vaughan Corporate Centre in much the same way that the Sheppard Subway has created high density nodes at each station point along its route.

Both Viva and YRT are part of YRT's 1system fare policy. This means that a Viva fare and a YRT fare are treated the same, and that riders can transfer from either service to the other without having to pay an additional fare. Riders can also transfer from TTC buses operating in York Region, assuming that they have paid the YRT fare when boarding the TTC bus (when in York Region) or exiting the TTC bus (when travelling to York Region from Toronto).

YRT 1system operates on a zone fare system. Much of southern York Region is in one zone and central York Region is in another zone. The Oak Ridges Moraine splits the zones. (Georgina, which constitutes another zone at least for Mobility Plus riders, do not have connections on the YRT to any other zone at present, thus fares are basically the same for one-zone down south, and transfers would be accepted if the rider used the GO Bus in between YRT routes.) The Oak Ridges Moraine is an ecologically sensitive geological landform in south central Ontario, Canada. ...


Riders can purchase "oneRide" (for a single ride) at all vivastations. In addition, riders may purchase "multiRide" (for ten rides) tickets from fare machines at terminals where viva operates or at authorized vendors. oneRide and single ticket fares are good for a 2-hour window (time printed on ticket) on any viva or YRT route.


Each ticket is divided into one or two zone fares. A single oneRide fare costs $2.75 for one zone, or $3.75 for two zones. ISO 4217 Code CAD User(s) Canada Inflation 2. ...


To ensure that all passengers pay their fares, the YRT has special "Fare Inspectors". Occasionally, they will go from bus to bus to make sure that passengers pay the fare; those that fail to do so will be fined CAD $250. Students must produce an authentic student ID card. (TTC Student ID cards are also considered a valid student ID card). Fines for students start from CAD$150. ISO 4217 Code CAD User(s) Canada Inflation 2. ...


As of July 1 2006, monthly passes for YRT 1system are eligible for a 15.5% tax rebate from the Government of Canada, which can be claimed when filing tax returns at the end of the year, with proof of purchase.

Viva went beyond other transit services by applying the latest technologies in their services. Currently, the ticketing machines operate on Microsoft Windows 2000 and a customized Viva client. Because of the large number of people using the ticketing machines in bus terminals, they are inspected often and usually in good working order. The ticket machines, which are not in a bus terminal, have a validation machine attached to their sides. For those ticketing machines inside the bus terminal, the validation machine is separated from the ticket machines because there could be multiple of ticket machines side by side.

Future extensions

Plans call for Viva’s Purple and Green lines to be extended east from their current McCowan Road terminus to Main St. Markham, Wootten Way, Cornell, and eventually Markham By-Pass. In the revised 5-year plan for YRT/Viva it was confirmed that service expansion to Cornell would be implemented on July 1, 2007. [2]


YRT/Viva have also identified a partnership with Brampton Transit's Acceleride, a service similar to Viva operating in the Region of Peel, as a priority. Connections along Highway 7 are expected to start upon Acceleride's inception.

No plans to further integrate VIVA with the existing GO train infrastructure were available at this writing, however. Currently only one of York Region's fourteen GO train stations is served by Viva, leading to some criticism of YRT's failure to exploit existing GO train stations as regional hubs.


Phases

  1. Bus rapid transit (currently in action)
  2. Dedicated transitways (reserved bus lanes at the centre of the street) for Viva, subject to funding from the three levels of government
    • Currently, an environmental assessment has been completed for the area on Yonge Street from Finch Avenue in Toronto to 19th Line in Newmarket. An application has been submitted to the Ontario Ministry of Environment, pending approval. The transitway would have buses running in a dedicated middle lanes with islands allowing passengers to board and disembark. The project
  3. Transitways being turned into light-rail transit (i.e., streetcars), subject to need and funding; not expected in the immediate future.

The next review of the service will take place in 2009, at which time decisions will be made about the transfer of service to different vehicles, and the addition, removal, or modification of current routes.
