While York Region has been facing many issues regarding traffic congestion, rapid transit is being developed to combat the issue according to the municipality’s website.
Phase one of its new rapid transit has begun.
A dedicated bus-only lane is now open on Highway 7, running between Highway 404 and Bayview Avenue.
The 2-and-a-half kilometre lane is the first of several dedicated transit rapid-ways opening in York Region.
Another link will open next year between Hwy. 404 and Warden Ave.
York Regional Transit and Viva are looking to introduce rapid bus transit on other parts of Highway 7 on Yonge Street and Davis Drive in Newmarket.
