Bus service to Ambleside was established in October 2007 on Route 324 by the Edmonton Transit System during peak hours only. Bus service has since been expanded, with Route 24 servicing the neighbourhood during daytime hours, and Route 324 providing service later at night and on early mornings and evenings on the weekend. Both routes run at a frequency of every thirty minutes. Both routes provide ready access to the Light Rail Transit (LRT) mainline at Century Park Station, which in turns provides ready access to downtown, and other areas of the city.
The main roadway into the neighbourhood is Windermere Boulevard. There is some residential development located just to the south of this roadway east of where it intersects Terwillegar Drive. Housing construction has increased with time, with a mix of single family homes and duplexes. There are also several townhouse and apartment style condominiums either fully built or under construction in the neighbourhood.
