For travel on Viva
Tickets are valid for travel on Viva routes when properly validated (date and time-stamped) by a vivaNow ticket validator. VivaNow machines are located at all vivastations and terminals.
| Transfers will be accepted on YRT/Viva from the following transit agencies as long as they have not expired.
Transfers will NOT be refreshed. Customers must retain their original transfer and travel must be completed by the two-hour issuance time.

DRT transfers will be accepted everywhere on YRT/Viva.
DRT monthly passes will be accepted only at the two transfer locations: Highway 404/Davis Drive Carpool Lot and Lake Ridge Road/Highway 48. YRT/Viva transfers will not be issued, so customers will be required to pay appropriate YRT/Viva fare on their return trip.
DRT fare payment using PRESTO card e-purse or DRT monthly pass will be accepted as long as the customer has tapped and paid a fare in Durham. A DRT monthly pass on a PRESTO card will allow a customer to continue travelling and transferring again within York Region (as long as the transfer is within two hours of the original tap). Customers will be required to pay appropriate YRT/Viva fare on their return trip.
GTA Weekly Passes are not accepted on DRT.
