However, the public transit service in Thornlea is not especially frequent. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines passing through the neighbourhood, and most homes are very close to a bus stop. There are relatively few pedestrians out on the streets of this part of the city, despite the fact that many daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
