Once completed, vivaNext Rapidways will be more than 35 kilometres of dedicated bus lanes in the centre of the road that will allow rapid transit buses to provide more reliable and frequent service to York residents. This new bus rapid transit service will be available on two significant corridors: east-west along Highway 7 and north-south along Yonge Street with another small east-west route along Davis Drive in Newmarket. As of the fall of 2018, the Vaughan, Woodbridge, and Newmarket sections of the project had reached 60 per cent completion, while the Richmond Hill portion of the project was approximately one-third complete. The previous three sections are scheduled for completion by the end of 2019, while the Richmond Hill portion is expected to be finished by the end of 2020.
