Starting a new job in Wayne, PA pretty soon, so looking for a suburb to move to (relocating from another state).

Trying to save money, but need safe area where I can share a house or rent a small apartment (studio would be great).

I have a car and a motorcycle, so ideally would share house and garage and driveway.

Tips?

Offering your budget limit would be very helpful and could determine if you could live at/near Wayne or if you have to live further out.

What you're looking for is likely available somewhere along the Main Line, you just have to look until you find it. With the number of colleges in the area (Villanova being the big one, but also Rosemont, Haverford, Bryn Mawr, Eastern, Cabrini, etc.), there are plenty of rentals/apartments available. There are no crime/safety concerns anywhere on the Main Line.

There's a questionnaire sticky at the top of the Philadelphia forum. Answering it will help you get the best possible answers. Cut and paste its contents into this thread along with your answers.

That 30- to 45-minute commute figure gives you a wide range of communities you can consider, depending on where in Wayne your office is located. If it's near the Regional Rail station, you could even consider finding a walkable community along the Main Line, such as Bryn Mawr or Ardmore, and leave your car and your motorcycle at home most days.

Phoenixville would be my recommendation. As a fallback, the 422 corridor (Collegeville, Oaks, Audubon, etc) meets your criteria too.

Yeah...without budget and other parameters I can't get too invested in the question.

Malvern, Frazer, Exton, or Downingtown would be good choices.
