Driving is an excellent means of transportation in Cape Horn. The majority of real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and it is very easy to come across a parking spot. However, the public transit network in Cape Horn is rather limited. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and it is very easy to find a nearby bus stop from most residences.

Thankfully, this part of Coquitlam is home to a fairly good cycling infrastructure. A majority of the houses for sale in this part of the city are located in places that are also not very conducive to those who travel by foot because very few daily errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.
