The best method of transportation in Hammond is very often driving. The majority of properties for sale are a rather short drive from the nearest highway, and it is very convenient to find a parking spot. However, the public transit network in this neighbourhood is not very practical. Thankfully, there is the Maple Meadows Station on the West Coast Express Line. The neighbourhood is connected by a few bus lines, and it is straightforward to reach a nearby bus stop from most properties. The bike is a sometimes poor method of transportation in this part of the city because there are a good number of hills, and the bicycling infrastructure is not very well-developed. Walking is also not very practical for home buyers in Hammond as many day-to-day needs are inconvenient to meet without having to resort to a vehicle.
