Driving is an excellent means of transportation in Bayview. It is especially convenient to come across a parking spot, and it is a rather short drive to the nearest highway, such as Highway 403, from any location in this neighbourhood. On the other hand, the public transit system in this part of Burlington is fairly poor. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and the closest bus stop is usually just around the corner. Bayview is not very bike-friendly since the cycling network is rather limited, and bicycling is rendered arduous by the typically sloping terrain. Most houses for sale in this area are located in places that are also not very conducive to walking as very few daily errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
