=== SouthWest toward [[Hamilton]], [[Niagara]] and [[Buffalo]] ===
My experience from yesterday,this route is quite challenging but not impossible.Take a subway to Kipling Station,transfer to a bus 123,go all the way until the end.Just across the street from the last bus stop you will see Tim Hortons.One block away you will notice big traffic flowing to Mississauga ,that s the exit ramp you wanna put your thumb.It didnt work for me,the area is still within city limits,people are grumpy ,tired after long day of work,big chance they wont even bother paying attention on you.however if you walk along this highway all the way to Mississauga center,take a first ramp called Cawtrha.this spot will take you down south to Hamilton and Buffalo.It worked for me.
The last bus stop on the 123 is called Longbranch, it's on Lakeshore; if you keep on the side of the road you're on and walk forward, there's a pretty good place to hitch within your line of sight
. If you stay on Lakeshore it'll take you through Oakville and Burlington into Hamilton. In Hamilton, if you're heading towards Niagara or Buffalo, your best bet is to get onto Centennial Pkwy where it turns onto the QEW. I got a ride from there into Lincoln (about halfway from Hamilton to Niagara Falls, right beside St. Catherine's) and went from a gas station there to the Falls. A lot of people will tell you not to take drivers advice, but if you're unfamiliar with the area (as I was) locals are usually happy to tell you what secondary roads feed into the major arteries, and from there you can just use your intuition to find a good spot.
