Is there a spreadsheet? I'll stop telling people to check it if not.

That's the kind insider information I love to hear. Any idea how long of a wait we should expect?

Here is some info for all those driving to Toronto from Buffalo and back. There is a border crossing wait time app.

http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/bwt-taf/

There are three border crossings between the US and Canada in the area. Queenston Lewiston, Rainbow (Niagara Falls) and the Peace Bridge (downtown Buffalo). Unless you are planning on going to Niagara Falls I would use one of the other two. Much easier to maneuver. For coming back to Buffalo use the Queenston bridge as it will its the first crossing you will encounter coming along the QEW.

With the Bills game the lines could be long, sometimes upwards of an hour, but they are pretty good at dealing with this.

Here is a link to a map.

Central Downtown, minutes from the Main Union station hub.

Looking to Share Friday, Saturday or both nights
$27.50 per night (3 person split)
You would get the Pullout Sofa in the 2nd bedroom (I would take the couch)
If a "couple" or two people wanted to share, it would be reduced per person

Also
Carpool Buffalo/Toronto
Friday Buffalo to Toronto (Get in a little after 3pm could wait around a little until 5 if needed) (3 seats available)
&
Sunday Toronto to Buffalo (My flight out is 5pm, but I can leave earlier if needed) (2 seats available)

Cost for ride? I am open about it.

Can email me at felixforever34@gmail.com

I am driving from Baltimore,MD to Toronto on Friday arriving afternoon/evening in Toronto. I am going through Central Pennsylvania, Up state NY and Buffalo. If you need a ride let me know. I am coming back on Sunday late morning on the same route. I can give anyone a lift.

I also need a place to stay in Toronto on Friday and Saturday night. I am more that happy to share a place and split the cost.

We only have 46 minutes from landing in Dallas to the departure of our flight to Toronto. We are flying American. Are we going to have a problem catching our connecting flight?

You typically shouldn't, but are they in different terminal areas? It's American to American, right?

I don't have gates listed on my itinerary. American to American. DFW has a building for each airline correct? So I shouldn't have to tram anywhere?

Yeah, you should be in the same general area. Probably not an issue.

Wait, the mythical MMClark is going???

DFW is pretty huge and American's presence there is huge. Their flights come and go through 3 different terminals. 46 minutes doesn't sound impossible but you may be cutting it close depending on gates and actual flight times.

This is true, but the flights also tend to be grouped together based on type of aircraft and destination.

So your big heavies going on intercontinental trips tend to be grouped in one terminal, your feeder commuter types are grouped in another terminal, and everyone else is grouped as well. SEA-DFW and DFW-YYZ are going to be flown by similar aircraft, so the odds are better that they'll be close to one another than not.
