Not really, it's a 2 hour drive from Montreal so it's not that far.. Just leave early in the morning and comeback late night. It will do it.

Also, what are some good touristy things we should look to do in the area? I'm not going with friends this time so it's not really a drinking trip unfortunately.
In the molson area people are dumb and drunk. The rest is cool.

From what I remember buses have their own lane on Pont Champlain; how long would it take by bus?
10 minutes by subway, 30 by bus, 30 by car.

Even the "bad" neighborhoods are pretty boring. The biggest drawback are the locals-only bars where they give you a funny look when you walk in, but two beers later it's cool.
just dont go in the Irish or Ghetto bars. MTL is good if you stay on the big streets.
