Viva Green is a Viva base route operated by YRT in Markham and Toronto, ON.

Basic

Viva Green serves mainly Enterprise Blvd., Warden Ave., Esna Park Dr., and Gordon Baker Rd.

This route has 1 main branch:

Viva Green serves the Unionville community. It also serves Downtown Markham, IBM Canada, Seneca College Newnham Campus, and Fairview Mall.

Viva Green runs alongside Viva Purple between McCowan and Warden, and Viva Pink between Enterprise and Warden.

History

Viva Green first started operating on October 16, 2005, as part of Viva phase 2. It first operated between Unionville GO Station and Don Mills Station 7 days a week. It gained a rush hour extension to McCowan on November 21 as part of Viva phase 3. Service initially operated between Unionville GO Station and 14th via Highway 407 during Viva phase 2 due to construction of Enterprise Blvd. not being complete.

In September 2007, Viva Green became a rush-hour only route because of poor ridership during off-peak periods. This created the first section of the Viva system to only be served during peak periods. In 2007, Viva Green was officially assigned route 607. This number was only seen by the public for a short time before being removed, although this number is used on Google Maps' transit routing for the route.

In 2016, YRT released the Frequent Transit Network Plan which will restructure Viva Green. The route will provide express service along Leslie Street between Don Mills Station and Major Mackenzie Drive. There is no proposed date for when the restructured route will begin service currently.

Vehicles

Viva Green is primarily a 40ft route, and uses Van Hool A330.
