Ajax is fairly good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some parts can be quite loud, especially around Highway 401 or one of the railway lines. Parks aren't well-situated, making them very hard to get to.
Cars are an excellent mode of transportation in Ajax. It is straightforward to come across a parking spot. In contrast, Ajax is not very transit friendly. Nonetheless, there is the Ajax Station with access to the Lakeshore East Line. Residents are served by approximately 20 bus lines, and most properties are very close to a bus stop. Bicycling is difficult in this town because cyclists encounter a considerable amount of slopes, and there are few bike lanes. Ajax is also not very well-suited for those who travel by foot because many daily needs are impractical to meet without the use of a car.
