Westview is very car friendly. The majority of real estate listings are a very short car ride from the closest highway, such as Trans-Canada Highway, and it is easy to access a place to park. However, travelling by public transit is challenging in this part of City of North Vancouver. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and it is very easy to get to a nearby bus stop from most homes. Travelling by foot is not very popular in Westview, even though many day-to-day errands can be run without the use of a vehicle. Moving around by bicycle is also very hard in this area as riding is made strenuous by the typically sloping topography, and the cycling network is not very well-developed.
