From the above graph, you can see that Bulyea was developed in the mid 1980s and 1990s. Very little has changed in the neighbourhood because when it comes to houses, these places are so new. It will be a long time before any homes are replaced with infills. Bulyea’s homes are so large and still so new, knocking one down and building a new house on the lot just wouldn’t be feasible.

Access & Parking

Access to Bulyea is pretty good. There are only 3 points of access, but they’re decent in their flow. All traffic in Bulyea should be local for this reason, so the lack of many points of entry could be considered worth it.

Parking is decent in Bulyea. The only issue is that the vast majority of homes have frint driveways which limit front street parking. Most people seem to use their garages though so the only issue might be cul-de-sacs where frontage is very limited. Streets are wide and there are no restrictions for the most part – besides seasonal parking areas in some places.

Transit

There are 25  bus stops in Bulyea. That is a lot of bus stops – one for every 48 houses, which is excellent!
