Rosslyn is very car friendly. It is very convenient to come across a parking spot. In contrast, getting around by transit can be very hard in this area by reason of the low service level. Thankfully, there are a few bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and the closest bus stop is typically a short walk away. It is very difficult for pedestrians to navigate Rosslyn because almost no daily errands can be run without having to resort to a vehicle.
It is very rarely practical for home buyers in Rosslyn to buy their groceries on foot. In terms of education, there are only a few primary schools in this part of Thunder Bay and therefore they can be an extended walk away. Additionally, this part of the city does not have any high schools. Moreover, daycares are not plentiful and thus not always within walking distance.
Rosslyn is good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are usually reasonably tranquil - however noise can be bothersome near the airport (YQT) or one of the railway lines.
