Georgetown does not have a local bus system, but GO transit has buses to & from various cities around the GTA and several trains going into Toronto in the morning and from Toronto in the evening making it a benefit for some commuter.
Recently, Macleans magazine voted the Halton region (including Georgetown) one of the safest cities in Canada. It is a friendly community with small town feel but still has almost everything needed in a community. The hospital is less busy than any of the surround communities with short wait times.
Georgetown/Halton Hills has a strong Scottish background (27% of the total population) due to the early settler when the town was established. Irish (23%), German (11%), French (10%) and Italian (7.6%) also make up a significant proportion of the population.
Georgetown has a number of chain restaurants (McDonalds, Kelsey's, Swiss Chalet, Pizza Hut, Boston Pizza, Shoeless Joes) and a significant amount of unique, family owned establishments.
