Viva is YRT's rapid transit service, the first of its kind in the GTA.

Viva operates by frequency, which means it doesn't have a schedule. Trips are frequent and flexible, making it easy for you to get to your destination at any time.

Each stop – called a "vivastation" – has a ticket vending machine and a ticket validator so you can pay for your fare before you board the bus. There is a real-time display screen that lets you know when the next bus will arrive. Fares are on a proof-of-payment system to speed up boarding times, so be sure to always have proof of your paid fare ready for inspection.

Viva operates along major corridors in York Region, connecting Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, Aurora and Newmarket, and links York Region with Toronto and its subway system, GO Transit and the Region of Peel.
