Transcona South real estate guide & listings for sale
Transcona South is quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although there are still several noisier areas, especially near the railway line. Most locations in the neighbourhood have reasonably good access to green spaces, such as Buhler Recreation Park, since they aren't well-distributed. Still, there are a few parks nearby for residents to unwind in.
The preferred mode of transportation in this area is usually driving. The majority of real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, and coming across a parking spot is generally easy.

Nonetheless, homeowners are served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are commonly relatively close by. It is very challenging for people travelling on foot to move around in this neighbourhood since almost no daily errands can be run without needing to use a car.
