Nevertheless, property owners are served by a few bus lines, and bus stops are commonly nearby. It is challenging to commute by bicycle in this area as there are quite a few elevation changes, and the bicycling infrastructure is not very well-developed. Riverside is also not particularly conducive to walking since few daily errands can be run without having to use a vehicle.
House buyers in Riverside typically have to turn to a vehicle to travel to the nearest supermarket. Nevertheless, it is generally a reasonably short distance to the closest pharmacy, which can supply some basic food items.
