The Go Train is a regional public transit service that runs through Don Mills. The GO provides its passengers with a quick, safe, and reliable service to downtown Toronto and other urban centres. Over 62 million passengers use the GO each year.
Traveling east on Lawrence Avenue will take you to the Don Valley Parkway (DVP). This is the main N/S highway in Toronto and it provides a quick route to downtown Toronto or a route north out of the city. Traveling north on the DVP also allows commuters to hook up with Highway 401, which is the main highway that runs E/W through Southern Ontario.
These two highways are very important for the movement of people and products out of Don Mills. People use these highways to get to work everyday. By using the DVP, companies in Don Mills can quickly move their products downtown or to the cities north of Toronto. HWY 401 allows companies to distribute their products throughout southern Ontario.
Due to the location of Don Mills and its system of roads and pathways, movement in, through, and out of this neighbourhood is quick and easy. Movement includes that of people, animals, products, and information.
Don Mills is located in southern Ontario in the city of Toronto at the coordinates of 43.7371 degrees N and 79.3434 degrees W. The main intersection of Don Mills is Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue. The rough boundaries of the neighbourhood are York Mills Road to the north, Don Valley Parkway to the east, Eglinton Avenue to the south, and Wilket Creek (west of Leslie) to the west.
Don Mills Road provides three lanes for vehicle transportation. One of these lanes is a designated commuter lane which is also called an HOV lane or a high occupancy lane. This lane only allows vehicles with three or more people and buses and taxis. The commuter lane is faster and encourages people to carpool, bike, or take public transit.
The Don Valley consists of trails, a railroad, part of the Don River, and is a home to many animals including foxes, deer, squirrels, and bunnies. The Don Valley trails can take you from Don Mills to downtown Toronto. On the trails you can walk, run, walk your dog, and even go off road cycling.
Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue are the main arteries that run through the heart of Don Mills, providing easy North/South and East/West access. Both Don Mills Road and Lawrence Avenue have many buses that can take residents of Don Mills in all directions and to many destinations, including several subway stations. From these stations people can continue to travel throughout the city. For example, they can go south to downtown Toronto and possibly hook up with alternate forms of transportation like trains.

The Don River is a 38 km river that runs through Don Mills. The river flows from the watersheds of the Oak Ridges Moraine all the way to Lake Ontario. The Don River is a great place for animals to drink water while on the move and for salmon spawning in the spring. Historically the Don River was used as a transportation route by aboriginal communities.
