You already know that Viva’s great for the environment, with every single Viva vehicle able to replace 70 cars on our region’s crowded roads. And we know you’re excited about the vivaNext rapidways that are coming to York Region, which are going to make it even easier for Viva riders to get around quickly and comfortably.

And if that’s not enough, now YRT\Viva is giving you a great new reason to get out of your car and onto Viva. We are proud to support Canada’s national Retire Your Ride program, which offers $300 for every pre-1995 car that is taken off the road. You can choose to receive the $300 Retire Your Ride payout, or if you are one of the first 100 local residents to turn in your old car to Retire Your Ride, you can receive a reward from York Region of six months’ Viva\YRT Adult 1-Zone passes, worth $105 each. That’s a total value of $630!

Environment Canada estimates there are 83,000 older cars in York Region that would qualify, which means they are a 1995 or older model, in running condition, registered and properly insured for the previous 6 months.

If you have an older car, or know someone who does, now is a great time to trade it in for cash or a free ride on us.

    Does it mean we can get 6 months’ passes plus the $300 reward from Retire Your Ride?

    Thanks

    DaleA: Hi Jigang,

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ve looked into the options the Retire Your Ride program offers and York Region residents have a choice of either the $300 payout from Retire Your Ride, or a reward from York Region of six months’ YRT\Viva Adult 1-Zone passes. I’ve changed the wording of the blog to clarify.
