Transportation

Burnaby is very car friendly. It is a reasonably short car ride to the closest highway, such as Gaglardi Way, from anywhere in Burnaby, and it is easy to find a parking spot. Residents can also count on public transit to move around in Burnaby owing to a multitude of rapid transit stations with access to the Expo Line and Millenium Line, and about 40 nearby bus lines. Commuting by bicycle is difficult in Burnaby since there is a significant amount of slopes, and Burnaby has a somewhat poor bicycling infrastructure. It is also at times difficult for people walking to navigate this city since few daily errands can be run without the use of a car.

Housing

Small apartment buildings are the main housing type, representing around one quarter of buildings in Burnaby, while the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, duplexes, and single detached homes. This city also has a good variety of housing size options; properties range from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly 60% of the dwellings in the city are occupied by homeowners and 40% are rented. About 30% of homes in this city were built in the 1960s and 1970s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.

Services

It is a reasonably short walk to reach daycares and primary schools from anywhere in Burnaby. On the other hand, high schools are not very numerous and consequently not always within walking distance. Besides public schools, there are private primary and high schools.
