Viva Pink is a Viva base route operated by YRT in Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, and Toronto, ON.

Basic

Viva Pink serves mainly Enterprise Blvd., Highway 7, and Yonge St.

This route has 1 main branch:

Viva Pink serves the Unionville, Markham, Richmond Hill, and Thornhill communities. It also serves Downtown Markham, Markham Civic Centre, Flato Markham Theatre, First Markham Place, Seneca College Markham Campus, Beaver Creek Business Park, Richmond Hill Centre Terminal, Thornhill Village, and Centerpoint Mall.

Viva Pink runs alongside Viva Green between Enterprise and Warden, Viva Purple between Enterprise and Richmond Hill Centre, and Viva Blue between Richmond Hill Centre and Finch Station.

History

Viva Pink first started operating on January 2, 2006, as part of Viva phase 4. It was the last Viva route to be implemented. In 2007, Viva Pink was officially assigned route 604. 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.

On February 12, 2012, to accommodate vivaNext construction, the eastbound Bayview vivastation was moved to High Tech Rd. just west of Bayview Ave., resulting in a route detour along Yonge St., High Tech Rd., and Bayview Ave. for all northbound Viva Pink buses. Due to the same reason, ridership on Viva Pink has decreased over the past year due to passengers utilizing the faster route 300 to go to Finch Station, despite the 50 cent surcharge.

Viva Pink began to use the rapidways on Highway 7 East between Bayview Avenue and Highway 404 on August 18, 2013, and between Highway 404 and Town Centre Blvd. on August 24, 2014, and between Town Centre Blvd. and Warden Avenue on January 4th, 2015.

The Rapid Transit Network Plan will extend Viva Pink east from Unionville GO Station to McCowan Road in 2017, to compensate for the restructuring of Viva Green.

Vehicles

Viva Pink sees a mix of 40ft service provided by Van Hool A330 and 60ft service provided by Nova Bus LFX/LFS Artic and Van Hool AG300.
