3.5 hours is a reasonable time if the traffic getting out of TO isnt bad.

try 5 1/2 hours doing the speed limit. it's 550 KM. you'd have to be averaging 150 to get to montreal in 3 1/2 hours

I've driven to Montreal hundreds of times, if you go around 120-140km you will get there in about 4-4.5 hrs, stopping once or twice for a leak or snack, the fastest I've gotten from Montreal back to Toronto was about 3-3.5hrs, I didn't go slower then 180km & stopped only once for gas

hahah I'm sure they figure your going 90km/h

But it did take me 8 hrs to get from T.O to Montreal one time. In a ice storm.

Just came back last week, took me 6 hours to get there (mad traffic in TO on the way out) and 5:15 to get back with 2 stops, one for lunch, the other pee break.

Traveling about 120-130 all the way.

Longest it's taken me... 11 hours. There a was a MASSIVE accident last year on labour day weekend that closed the highway. bumper to bumper moving 5-10 km /hour for about 30 KM's then a WIDE detour....

I think the most I was doing was about 60KM. I had to stop at every service station to knock off some of the ice. No word of a lie when I got to Montreal I must have had a good 1" all over the car except the headlights. We lost track of how many cars were off in the ditch, let alone the 18 wheelers. Thank GOD I didn't have any kids in the car. That would have been more suicide then weather
