Metrolinx, Infrastructure Ontario and The Regional Municipality of York have selected the three teams prequalified to design, build and finance the next phase of York Viva Bus Rapid Transit (vivaNext) rapidways in the cities of Vaughan and Markham.

The expanded vivaNext rapid transit system will connect to other transit systems across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. In Vaughan, the next phase of the vivaNext rapidway includes about 12 kilometres of dedicated bus lanes on Highway 7 with nine median stations and one curbside station. In Markham, the next phase includes approximately two kilometres of rapidway along the Simcoe Promenade and the YMCA Boulevard with two curbside stations.

Based on a request for qualifications issued in December 2013, the three following construction teams will have the opportunity to respond to a request for proposals later this summer.
