De-stress Your Commute!

Currently working in Ottawa or Montreal but tired of the big city and the daily commuter grind? You might want to consider North Glengarry.

Think about quality over quantity.

The "extra" 10-15 minutes of commuter time from Maxville or Alexandria will be much less stressful than the daily carnage that is the hwy 174. You might even come out ahead. For example, the commute from Maxville is 45 minutes, most of it smooth sailing along the 417 West till the split. Many residents are already doing the same and you can car pool.

Or consider the Delaney daily commuter coach service bus and leave the driving to someone else. The value of living in North Glengarry will become clear when you look at housing values in Ottawa East compared to Glengarry and how we can help you de-stress your commute.    


With quick access to the 417 and 401 highways, North Glengarry is less than an hour's drive to Ottawa or Montreal and even closer to Hawkesbury or Cornwall. A central location gives you unparalleled options for the family that works, plays or studies in more than one of these nearby cities.

Commuter Bus Service

The 417 Bus Lines provides a daily commuter coach service that travels between Alexandria, Maxville and Ottawa / Gatineau. Perhaps you've seen our one-of-a-kind bus making its daily trip? Imagine a stress-free ride to work while sipping coffee and plugging into your tablet or phone without worry or get a head start on planning your day.

The coach uses the OC Transpo Transitway so it skips a lot of headaches that car commuters have to deal with!  

And the monthly passes are tax deductible! You can't say that about gas prices or oil changes! What are you waiting for? De-stress your commute and live in North Glengarry!
