Fairview is named after Fairview Cove, which forms the extreme southern end of Bedford Basin at the northern edge of the isthmusconnecting the Halifax Peninsula with the larger Chebucto Peninsula.

As such, Fairview sits astride and is bisected by several major transportation corridors:

  • CN Rail lines from yards in nearby Rockingham to the Halifax Ocean Terminal, as well as to the Richmond Terminals, and to theBayer's Lake Business Park.
  • Highway 102 expressway, (Bicentennial Drive or "Bi-Hi") which crosses through the neighbourhood on a 1960s-era overpass which crosses several major streets and rail lines
  • Trunk 2, (the Bedford Highway), which has its southern terminus in Fairview along the shore of Bedford Basin and connects to theNorth End community of Halifax via the 1950s-era Fairview Overpass
  • Joseph Howe Drive, which runs the length of the Halifax Peninsula's isthmus
  • Dutch Village Road, which in 2002 was shortened to operate as a small loop through the old business district in Fairview - it originally ran along much of the alignment for Joseph Howe Drive
  • Bayers Road, which used to run from Halifax's North End neighbourhood to Bayers Lake, a freshwater lake northwest of Fairview - and now runs to an intersection with Joseph Howe Drive
