Cars are an excellent mode of transportation in this part of the town. It is a rather short drive to the closest highway, such as Highway 401, from any home in Hornby, and it is especially convenient to park. In contrast, the public transit system in Hornby is quite poor. Many of the houses for sale in this part of Halton Hills are located in places that are not very conducive to walking as running daily errands is inconvenient on foot. The bicycle is a rather limited mode of transportation in Hornby because the cycling infrastructure is not very comprehensive, and riding is rendered arduous by the typically hilly area.
This neighbourhood does not have any high schools or primary schools. Moreover, parents may consider it very difficult for their schoolchildren to reach daycares on foot. When it comes to eating, in all but a very small number of cases, a vehicle is required to do groceries. There are a few options for those who appreciate close by restaurants and cafes.
Hornby is good for those who like quiet surroundings, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder areas, especially near Highway 401. Public green spaces aren't well-situated, making them rather difficult to access from most locations within this part of the town. Despite that, there are a few parks nearby for residents to relax in.
