YRT rebrands... slightly



YRT has replaced YRT/Viva as the official brand name and master brand for York Region Transit. YRT says “The rebranding stems from our commitment to continually improve our service and the customer experience. A strong, simple brand is essential to providing a transparent service and to put the traveller first. The new brand creates one cohesive transit system under the YRT master brand.”

The rebranding streamlines YRT’s services and creates a platform to introduce the new YRT family of services:

  • Local;
  • Express;
  • Viva; and
  • On-Demand.

Watch for these sub-brands on the YRT website, bus stops, terminals and maps.

YRT Local routes are conventional routes, which cater to local communities across all York Region municipalities. Buses along YRT Local routes serve schools, community centres, shopping areas, seniors’ residences and more.

YRT Express buses provide fast, clean service in comfortable buses that operate Mondays to Fridays only during rush hours. These buses make fewer stops to connect busy commuters to major GO Transit terminals or the TTC subway.

The special buses for Viva, York Region’s bus rapid transit (BRT) service, mostly travel along dedicated bus lanes, or “rapidways”, on major road corridors throughout York Region. When out of mixed traffic, Viva vehicles operate faster than conventional service and avoid congestion. Buses arrive frequently and link York Region to Toronto’s subway system and GO Transit.

This fall, YRT will amalgamate Mobility Plus and Dial-a-Ride to form On-Demand, creating its newest demand-responsive transit service. The On-Demand service will be accessible to all ages and abilities. It will provide service to York Region residents in low-demand areas or during low-demand time periods throughout the day. On-Demand will combine with the current door-to-door accessible service of Mobility Plus for people with physical or functional disabilities.
