Buses are currently the only form of public transport available to Bella Vista residents. The suburb is serviced by private bus companies Hillsbus and Busways. Relatively frequent buses connect Bella Vista with the nearby hubs of Parramatta, Castle Hill, Blacktown and Seven Hills. There are also peak services available directly to North Sydney, CBD and Macquarie Park using the North West T-way.

The closest railway station is at Seven Hills, however the North West Rail link with stations at Norwest and Bella Vista is planned to link residents to Epping, Chatswood, North Sydney and the CBD.
