Thankfully, the neighbourhood is linked by about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most properties. This area is not especially well-suited for those who travel by foot since very few daily errands can be run without needing to resort to a car.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing around 40% of dwellings in North Shore, and the remaining properties are mainly small apartment buildings, duplexes, and townhouses.
