The car is very often the favoured means of transportation in this part of Markham. It is straightforward to park, and nearby highways, such as Highway 404, are quite easy to reach from anywhere in this area. In contrast, the public transit network in this area is not very accessible. Thankfully, homeowners benefit from around 10 bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. The bike is a rather poor method of transportation in this part of the city as there is a significant amount of elevation changes, and the cycling network is not very extensive.
