Setting & Lifestyle
Residents will find that the city is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Montrose is worth considering.
One of the benefits of Montrose is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.36 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
Being a small city, Montrose does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
