Downtown Whitby real estate guide & listings for sale
Downtown Whitby is fairly good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case around Highway 401 or the railway line.
The favoured method of transportation in Downtown Whitby is very often driving. Nearby highways, such as Highway 401, are easy to drive to from any home in this area, and it is straightforward to come across a parking spot. In contrast, travelling by transit can be at times challenging in this part of Whitby due to the service's low frequency. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is served by approximately 10 bus lines, and most houses are very close to a bus stop. There are relatively few pedestrians out on the streets of this part of the town, although many daily needs can be met without the use of a vehicle.
