History

Viva Orange first operated on October 16, 2005, as part of Viva phase 2. In September 2007, Viva Purple's rush hour extension west of York University, which paralleled Viva Orange, was eliminated. Also in 2007, Viva Orange was officially assigned route 605.

In May 2011, Viva Orange was rerouted to utilize the York University Busway and Dufferin Street between York University and Downsview Station. This eliminated the Keele-Finch station, which was replaced by new stations at Murray Ross and Dufferin-Finch.

Off-peak service south of York University was discontinued on June 30, 2013. Service west of Pine Valley Drive was cut after 8pm on weekdays and all day on weekends on April 20, 2014.

With the opening of the Line 1 subway extension to Vaughan in December 2017, service to York University and Sheppard West Station was replaced by the subway, and Viva Orange was extended east to Richmond Hill Centre. While originally anticipated to replace Viva Purple service west of Richmond Hill Centre, Viva Purple continued to operate to York University on a temporary basis. Weekday evening service west to Martin Grove also returned.

On January 3, 2020, the new 5.5km Viva Rapidway section along the existing routing on Centre and Bathurst Streets is opened with new rapidway stations located at Dufferin Street, Taiga Drive, Disera-Promenade, Atkinson Avenue, and Bathurst & Highway 7. Promenade Terminal is no longer served.

Vehicles

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