Lastly, it is easy to reach parks from a lot of locations in the neighbourhood since there are about 20 of them nearby for residents to relax in.
Driving is a great medium of transportation in Merritton. Most homes for sale are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Highway 58, and it is especially convenient to park. On the other hand, the public transit network in Merritton is fairly poor. Nonetheless, there are about 10 bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and bus stops are ordinarily nearby. Merritton is not particularly convenient for walking since few common errands can be run on foot.
