  1. Westbound Viva Purple will not use the rapidway.
  2. Following up... 77 Highway 7 will use the new Creditstone and Keele rapidway stations both ways. Fares will continue to be collected onboard buses. Viva Purple will use the Keele rapidway station eastbound only. Westbound stop remains unchanged. This change is temporary until the Spadina Subway opening... looks like the Orange branch to Promenade won't happen anytime soon. https://www.yrt.ca/Modules/News/index.aspx?feedId=61871a87-3a4a-4422-a905-45226803e0f1&newsId=c777e661-0d30-477d-a081-ccec027dcda2
