Bay Ridges

Part of the Greater Toronto Area metropolitan area, Bay Ridges is a neighbourhood within Pickering, Ontario.


The public transit network in Bay Ridges is good. In particular, the closest train station, such as the Pickering Station on the Lakeshore East Line, is ordinarily within walking distance from the bulk of houses in the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far-removed from most houses. On the other hand, cycling is challenging in Bay Ridges since cyclists encounter quite a few elevation changes, and there are few bike lanes. There aren't many pedestrians out on the streets of this neighbourhood, although carrying out daily needs is convenient by walking. In contrast, cars are a great mode of transportation in Bay Ridges. It is a short drive to the nearest highway, such as Highway 401, from any location in this area, and it is very convenient to park.
