Cars are an excellent transportation option in South Richvale. Many properties for sale are a rather short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 407, and finding a place to park is quite easy. In contrast, the public transit system in this area is not especially practical. Nonetheless, the neighbourhood is connected by around 10 bus lines, and bus stops are usually nearby. Travelling on foot is not especially practical for house buyers in South Richvale as meeting daily needs is at times difficult by walking. This part of the town is also not very amenable to biking because South Richvale has a rather poor bicycling infrastructure, and riding a bike is rendered strenuous by the typically hilly terrain.
The predominance of single detached homes in the housing stock of South Richvale is an important part of its character. This part of Richmond Hill is notable for those looking for four or more bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 85% of the units in South Richvale and 15% are rented. This neighbourhood did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new homes in this neighbourhood was spread throughout multiple decades in recent history.
