The cost of living in Toyon comes in slightly higher than citywide prices. A one-bedroom
apartment in the neighborhood, for example, costs an average of $1,696 per month. This comes in about 18 percent higher than the San Jose average of $1,435. The $2 fare on VTA buses and light rails also sits a bit higher than most city's public transportation. While housing and transportation remain high, eating out costs come in on par with other cities, with an entree going for $12 and a beer, $5. Locals pay substantially more than the rest of the country at the pump, however — about 23 percent more.
