Background:
 
York Region is introducing a new YRT street furniture program to update the appearance of transit shelters, benches, bike racks, waste/recycling receptacles, newspaper and publication boxes, schedule display cases and community information kiosks region-wide.  The new look will ensure a consistent and appealing transit presence that will enhance public spaces in all municipalities.
 
Further information on the project can be viewed at www.yrt.ca/facilities/streetfurniture.asp 
 
More than 120 YRT/Viva routes keep residents connected within York Region, as well as with connecting services in the City of Toronto and the Region of Peel.  Over 18 million riders used YRT/Viva services               in 2009.
