York and Toronto consult the public
about Yonge subway and VivaNext



Updated — November 25, 1:35 p.m.: A Transit Toronto reader has pointed out that the December 3 event is at 89 Church Avenue, not 39 Church, as we published earlier.


The Region of York, the City of Toronto, York Rapid Transit Corporation (Viva) and the TTC are hosting two public consultation meetings to find out what you think about two different rapid transit proposals.

At the meetings, you can find out more about the proposal to extend the Yonge subway northwards beyond Finch Station to Highway 7 and about VivaNext — the next generation of of York’s bus rapid transit system, Viva.

These are the two final events in the formal part of the environmental assessment process for extending the Yonge Subway. An earlier meeting took place at the North York Civic Centre on Thursday, October 16. You can view the presentation materials from the October 16 meeting here.

At both meetings, you can find out more about the subway including the final alignment, the station locations and construction methods. Staff are looking for your ideas to make these proposals better, so this is your chance to take part in the process.

At the November 26 meeting, you can also find out more about VivaNext. VivaNext proposes dedicating part of the roadways along Highway 7, Yonge Street and other major corridors in York Region for bus rapid transitways. The first phase of VivaNext sees a busway along Highway 7 between Kennedy Road and the proposed subway station at the Richmond Hill Centre Terminal.

The meetings take place:

Wednesday, November 26,
Premiere Ballroom,
9019 Leslie Street,
(north of Highway 7)

Open house: 5 to 7 p.m.
Presentation: 7 to 9 p.m.
