Lantzville is reasonably good for those who enjoy quiet surroundings, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although there are still several louder areas, especially around Island Highway or the railway line.

In contrast, Lantzville is not very transit friendly. Nonetheless, the municipality is connected by a few bus lines, and bus stops are commonly close by. A majority of the homes for sale in this part of the Nanaimo metropolitan area are located in places that are not very suitable for walking as running daily errands is very challenging on foot.
