The best transportation option in this neighbourhood is usually driving. It is a rather short car ride to the nearest highway, such as Autoroute Laurentienne, from anywhere in Notre-Dame-des-Laurentides, and it is very convenient to come across a parking spot. However, getting around by transit can be difficult in this part of the city due to the service's low frequency. Nevertheless, house owners are served by approximately 10 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is usually just around the corner. It is difficult for people walking to navigate this neighbourhood as very few daily errands can be run on foot. The bike is a fairly poor mode of transportation in this area since bicycling is rendered arduous by the often steep area, and the cycling infrastructure is not very comprehensive.
Accessing the closest supermarket by walking is feasible for some, but not all, home buyers in this part of the city. There are also a few opportunities for those who care about nearby restaurants. Concerning education, daycares are easy to reach on foot from any location in Notre-Dame-des-Laurentides. However, primary schools and high schools are not very numerous in this neighbourhood, and therefore not always within walking distance.
Notre-Dame-des-Laurentides is fairly good for those who like quiet surroundings, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case around Autoroute Laurentienne. Parks aren't well-situated, making them sometimes challenging to get to from a large number of locations within this neighbourhood. Still, there are a few green spaces nearby for residents to visit, like Parc du Bon-Pasteur and Parc linéaire de la Rivière-des-Roches.
