Transportation

Columbia will appeal to house buyers that value a variety of means of transportation. This part of the city is conducive to those who travel by foot; meeting daily needs is easy by walking. In contrast, the bicycle is a somewhat poor method of transportation in Columbia because there are a limited number of bike lanes, and there are a fair number of hills. Getting around by public transit is easy in Columbia due to 2 rapid transit stations (University Of Waterloo Station and Research & Technology Station) with access to the 301 | Ion, and a few nearby bus lines. Driving is also a great means of transportation in Columbia. Most real estate listings are a rather short drive from the closest highway, and it is straightforward to come across a place to park.

Services

It is easy to access the closest supermarket on foot from most properties for sale in Columbia. Likewise, Columbia is a fairly good place in which to go out to eat or go to a cafe. It is also easy to reach a selection of clothing stores on foot. Regarding education, families will find that wherever their home is situated in Columbia, daycares and schools are nearby.

Character

The character of Columbia is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. This part of Waterloo is quiet overall, as the streets are reasonably tranquil - although that is not the case around the railway line. Finally, although the neighbourhood does not contain any public green spaces, parks are very well-spread out in nearby neighbourhoods, which makes them easy to get to from numerous locations within Columbia.
