Big Changes Coming For York Region Transit Riders

Big changes are coming for transit riders in York Region. As of July 1, 2017 riders will no longer be able to buy paper tickets and passes for YRT/Viva. While paper tickets and passes will no longer be sold, as of July 1st, they will continue to be accepted until the end of 2017. Other changes include eliminating the two zone fare structure. That means riders travelling north of Bloomington Sideroad will no longer have to pay an extra $1. The region is introducing a new mobile app called YRT/Viva Pay, which allows customers to purchase fares through their smartphones. It will be available for free as of July 1. Customers can also use Presto.
