It was a whopper of an announcement on Wednesday. York Region Chairman and CEO Bill Fisch welcomed Premier Dalton McGuinty’s pledge of $1.4 billion in provincial transit money for new Viva buses and the construction of dedicated bus rapidways on Hwy. 7, Yonge St. and Davis Dr.
The two-week-old Viva strike is over and service is expected to be back to normal tomorrow morning.
Vaughan has come out a big winner in Metrolinx’s massive $50-billion, 25-year transit vision for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, city councillors agree.
Viva bus service will grind to a halt at 4 a.m. Thursday morning when drivers will begin striking.
A Monday-morning strike by Viva bus operators has been averted after a tentative deal was reached Sunday.
