Transportation

Driving is a great means of transportation in Burlington. It is very easy to park, and it is a reasonably short drive to the closest highway, such as Highway 407, from any location in Burlington. On the other hand, this city is not very transit friendly. Nonetheless, property owners can depend on the Appleby Station, Aldershot Station and Burlington Station on the Lakeshore West Line. The city is linked by about 30 bus lines, and it is easy to get to a nearby bus stop from most residences. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for house buyers in Burlington as carrying out day-to-day needs is inconvenient by walking. Despite the fact that certain enjoyable pockets for cycling exist, Burlington is also not particularly bike-friendly because there are quite a few hills, and the bicycling infrastructure is somewhat poor.

Services

A fraction of property owners in Burlington may be able to reach one of over 100 supermarkets on foot, while others will have to use another means of transportation. A limited number of restaurants and coffee shops can be found as well. Regarding education, primary schools are easy to reach on foot from anywhere in Burlington. In contrast, there are only a few high schools and consequently they can be a long walk away. Families have the option of public and private schools at both the elementary and high school level.
