== East towards [[Montréal]] ==
From downtown, take the number 86 OC Transpo bus towards Elmvale and get off at Southvale / Russell. Keep walking down Russell towards the intersection of Walkley and Russell. Cross the street to the southeast side of the intersection, and go to the shoulder right at the start of the right-turn lane. Wait times from here are generally quite short, taking anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes in most cases. Just make sure your ride is going towards Montreal, as from this point people can be going either northbound or southbound on the 417.
There's also a pretty decent spot outside Lee's station. Walk up to Lee's Ave, turn right, and walk past the apartment complexes to the Trans Canada on-ramp. There isn't a shoulder, but there is a paved area right at the entrance of the On-Ramp where cars can stop. Wait times are usually under 40 mins, although can be longer depending on the day.
