Viva Green is a Viva bus rapid transit line in York Region, north of Toronto, Canada. The Rapid Transit Network Plan will reroute Viva Green away from its current routing in 2015, instead having it provide express service along Leslie Street between Don Mills Station and Major Mackenzie Drive. In 2016 Viva Green will be extended west along Major Mackenzie Drive to Harding Boulevard (west of Yonge Street).[citation needed]

There are 11 stations on the Green line, between the southerly terminus at Don Mills subway station in North York and McCowan Road in Markham
