Residents in Richmond Hill have a variety of travel options as the city develops and traffic gets denser. An unmatched bus service is provided by York Region Transit (YRT) throughout the entire northern GTA, with straightforward connections to Vaughan, Aurora, Markham, Newmarket, and Whitchurch-Stouffville, as well as straightforward connections to the TTC line. Richmond Hill does not have a TTC station, but there are proposals to extend the main subway lines to the crossroads of Yonge and Highway 7, which is the southernmost point of the community.
GO Transit is another option for commuters. Gormley GO Station and YRT bus services are both close to Uplands of Swan Lake.
