Getting around by car is very easy in Rural Pickering. Parking is quite easy.

The bicycle is a rather poor means of transportation in Rural Pickering since there is a considerable amount of hills, and the cycling network is not very extensive. Many of the homes for sale in this part of the city are located in places that are also not very conducive to walking because almost no day-to-day errands can be run without having to resort to a vehicle.
