As part of the vivaNext plan, beautiful new vivastations will be built in the centre of the roadway along the rapidways on Davis Drive, Yonge Street and Highway 7, as well as the proposed LRT lines on Don Mills Road/Leslie Street and Jane Street in York Region. From the top down, these vivastations have been designed around you. Among their many features and benefits, they will include bicycle racks for quick and easy transit connections.
Right now, we’re examining where to place these bicycle racks and would like to hear your thoughts. There are basically three options to consider.
Option 1 – Place them right on the platforms. This would allow you to conveniently lock your bicycle up right at your point of departure and simply board the next Viva vehicle. On your return Viva trip, you’ll arrive at the same station, but on a different platform. To get your bicycle, all you’d have to do is go back to the original departure platform.
Option 2 – Place the bicycle racks on the sidewalks at the intersections adjacent to the vivastations. This option would make it more convenient for you to shop, run errands and meet up with friends after your return Viva trip before picking-up your bicycle.
Option 3 – Distribute the bicycle racks evenly on both the platforms and the sidewalks.
So which option do you prefer? Please take a moment to let us know because here at vivaNext, we value your opinion – even when it comes to bicycle racks!
