Our two-hour fares let you travel on any YRT/Viva vehicle in any direction for two hours with just one fare. Just remember to keep your transfers as proof of payment so you can hop on and off vehicles.
If you begin your trip on a YRT bus (or a Brampton Transit or TTC bus operating in York Region) you will need to pay the cash fare, show a validated ticket and deposit it into the fare box, tap a PRESTO card or show your valid monthly pass. If you will be transferring to another YRT or Viva route, remember to ask for a transfer when you pay your cash/ticket fare. If using PRESTO, your two- hour transfer is placed electronically on the card. See the Fare Policy page for more details on fare integration policies.
Viva operates on a pre-paid, proof-of-payment system. There are no fare boxes on Viva so you must purchase tickets, passes or tap your PRESTO fare card prior to boarding. If you are using an unvalidated ticket, you must validate it at a vivaNow machine (located at all vivastations and terminals) prior to boarding. When a ticket is validated, the date and expiry time are printed on the ticket. If you are using a single ride ticket, the date and expiry time are printed on it at the time of purchase so it does not need to be validated. Hold onto validated tickets, transfers or present your PRESTO card when Transit Enforcement asks for proof of payment.
To transfer to a YRT bus, just show your validated ticket or pass to the bus driver when boarding. If using PRESTO, tap your card on the device next to the operator; your continuous travel and transfer is automatically calculated.
Customers travelling without valid tickets, transfers, PRESTO card or passes may be subject to warning, fine or criminal charge.
