Making it easy to get around

Experience the VMC’s award winning intermodal transit system.

“Place making and architecture means transit does not take a back seat and is actually a central space and heart of the downtown core where interaction and people gathering and living and working all happen.” – Mary-Frances Turner, President, York Region Rapid Transit Corp

Cars, parking, and pick-up/drop-off

For those who travel by car, Highway 400 and 407 ETR border the VMC, while Highway 7 runs through the middle.

Two paid parking lots are available northeast of Millway Avenue/Applemill Road and south of New Park Place. Commuter lots are also available at the Highway 407 and Pioneer Village subway stations.

Refer to the image below for passenger pick-up/drop-off and parking locations. See the VMC Parking Strategy for information about future parking plans.

Subway

Did you know Vaughan is the only urban growth centre in the Greater Toronto Area, outside of Toronto, that has subway access? Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station is the new northwestern terminus of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)’s Line 1. 

The VMC is a quick 5-minute subway ride to York University Station and a 45-minute ride to Union Station.

Bus Rapid Transit

The Viva Bus Rapidway serves the Viva (York Region) and Zum (Brampton) transit systems.

The VMC vivastation has an underground pathway that connects to the VMC Subway Station and SmartVMC Bus Terminal.

Active transportation

Bike lanes and bike boxes are already on Highway 7, Millway Avenue and Apple Mill Road, and will be expanded as the VMC builds out. 

Active transportation—including walking, biking, and other options—is an important part of the VMC’s vision and will continue to get easier.
