East York will attract homeowners that appreciate a diversity of modes of transportation. Travelling on foot is reasonably feasible for house buyers in East York; carrying out day-to-day needs is easy by walking, and a fair number of businesses of different types can be found as well. The bicycle is a fairly good mode of transportation in this part of the city since the cycling network is comprehensive. Thanks to Woodbine Station on the Bloor - Danforth Line, and approximately 20 nearby bus lines, commuting by public transit is very easy in this part of Toronto. Cars are also a good transportation option in this former municipality. It is a rather short drive to the closest highway, such as Don Valley Parkway, from anywhere in this part of the city, and it is convenient to park.

There are over 50 parks close by for residents to enjoy, such as Kay Gardner Beltline Park and E.T. Seton Park, and they are very well-situated, which makes it very easy to reach them.
