History

York Region had identified a number of corridors where higher-order transit would be necessary to address population and employment growth. Davis Drive is the main east-west corridor serving the Town of Newmarket. Before Viva Yellow, it boasted one of the more frequent YRT routes for a town its size, as route 55 ran no less than every 40 minutes at all times.

With Newmarket dedicated as an urban growth centre in the Places to Grow Act, Davis Drive was chosen as an intensification corridor, similar to Highway 7 in Vaughan, Richmond Hill, and Markham. The project included the widening of Davis Drive, transit-oriented development along the corridor, and new rapidway lanes west of Huron Heights Drive.

Construction for the Davis Drive Rapidway began in 2011 with the widening of the Keith Bridge. The rapidway will stretch from west of Yonge Street to just west of Huron Heights Drive/Alexander Road.

  • November 29, 2015 - The 2.7km Davis Drive Rapidway officially opens. Viva Yellow begins operations as the first Viva route inaugurated with a dedicated rapidway already in place, as well as the first vivaNext route.
  • January 8, 2017 - Service after 11pm every day is discontinued.

Vehicles

Viva Yellow is primarily a 40ft route and uses Van Hool A330 Wc15.JPG buses.
