Fort Erie is reasonably quiet overall, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case around Queen Elizabeth Way or one of the railway lines.
Cars are a great transportation option in this part of the St Catharines - Niagara metropolitan area. Parking is generally easy. On the other hand, travelling by transit can be very difficult in Fort Erie by reason of the low service level. Thankfully, property owners benefit from a few bus lines.
