Ottawa is the Capital city of Canada, located in Ontario just by the border with Quebec along the Ottawa River (Rivières des Outaouais).

Gatineau-Hull is the metropolitan area part located within the border of Quebec on the eastern side of the river, Gatineau forms the National Capital Area together with Ottawa.

Going East towards Montréal and beyond : From downtown, take number 86 OC transpo bus to Elmvale and keep walking in the direction the bus was facing when it dropped you off, in about 15mins you will be at the intersection of St-Laurent and Walkley, then cross Walkley, turn left, and keep walking for about another 25mins. You will get to an onramp that says 417 East Montréal. I've been picked up here before but you might wait a while because traffic is limited to the onramp. If you walk about another 25mins, you'll go over a hill and find a perfect spot with plenty of room for cars to pull over. Enjoy, and may the Force be with you.
