The first major phase of York Region's Viva Rapid Transit launched on August 18, 2013 in the centre median along Highway 7 in Richmond HIll and Markahm from Bayview Avenue to Highway 404. This initial portion is part of a greater project linking Markham and Richmond Hill and Toronto giving travel options to viva, GO, YRT and TTC. The next phase of the rapidway, a total of 3.9 kilometres, along Highway 7 from Highway 404 to Warden Avenue is scheduled to open later this year. Plans currently take the rapidway along Enterprise Boulevard, back to Highway 7 and all the way to Cornell.
