Driving is an excellent mode of transportation in this area. The majority of houses for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the closest highway, such as Highway 99, and coming across a place to park is quite easy. On the other hand, getting around by transit can be very hard in this part of West Vancouver as a result of the service's low frequency. Most houses for sale in this neighbourhood are located in areas that are not very well-suited for those who travel by foot as running day-to-day errands is very impractical. Bicycling is also very hard in Upper Lands since there are very few bike lanes, and there is a considerable amount of hills.
Around 90% of the dwellings in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners and the remainder are rented.

Parents may consider it difficult for their children to get to high schools and primary schools on foot. Furthermore, daycares are not abundant and accordingly not always within walking distance.
