Believe taxi fare is in the $30 - $35 range.

Distance is only about 11 miles or so to the Hampton and will take 20 - 30 minutes travel time.

Thank you for the information. Decided to rent a car as it will give us more freedom. Does anyone know what time rush hour ends going from Buffalo to Toronto? Thinking about heading to Toronto for lunch and then driving back to catch a 6 pm flight. It will be this coming Monday. Thanks

Hi Pscsb;

Rush hour traffic in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is approx. 6 - 10 am & 3 - 7 pm. Tune your car radio to 680 AM for traffic reports every 10 minutes.

Best Regards

Are you sure you want to spend several hours in the car just to have lunch in Toronto?? Are you meeting someone for lunch there? That's the only reason I can think would make all that time in the car worth it... If you'd like to spend some time in Canada, you could try Niagara Falls or Niagara-on-the-Lake. They are slightly closer than Toronto.

Yes, going there for a quick lunch. Realize it is a lot of driving but being from CA we are always behind the wheel. In Buffalo now look like decent weather, Thinking about leaving at 8:30 am to get there by 11:30 am and head back by 1pm to catch 6 pm flight. Sorry for the delay but did not get an e-mail alert. Thanks

You did luck out with the weather! We had the windows open in the house today, which is pretty unusual for late November. Nice and sunny.

Your plan sounds good in regard to drive times. Don't forget the passports!

I forgot to add that you can get anywhere you're going in Buffalo within 20 minutes. We in Buffalo think that if it takes longer than 20 minutes to get somewhere, then it's tooooo far!
