Default US Visa Waiver and Crossing US/Canada border

I am currently staying in the US under a visa waiver. My 90 days are almost up. I know I can't extend the visit by going to Canada, but how do I make sure that the days in Canada aren't taken from my US time

(Crossing the border by road on a Greyhound bus from Worcester MA to Toronto OH if it helps)

No way. The days in Canada are taken from my US time. You aren't authorized
to stay during 90 days, to choose, in the USA ; your visa waiver is valid
during 90 consecutive days after you first cross the border even if you only
spend 5 of those days in the US, the 85 other willl be loose.

Sorry

unfortunately for you:

If transiting the United States to a destination in Canada, Mexico or the adjacent islands, the traveler may re-enter the United States on the return journey using any mode of transport, as long as the total visit, including both periods of time spent in transit and in Canada, Mexico or the adjacent islands, does not exceed 90 days.]

so you cant really:

If transiting to a destination outside of Canada, Mexico, or the adjacent islands, the return journey must be on a participating carrier, but need not be within 90 days, as the traveler will be required to make a new application for admission and therefore, required to complete a new arrival/departure form, I-94W

which doesnt really help at all.
you say that you cant exten the visa by going to canada - what do you know of this? i am trying to find out if its possible to stay there for x amount of time and return with the aforestated I-94W form all over agaij for another 90 days. i really need to know how long it has to be between visa waiver trips. i guess you do too but any info would be greatfully recieved.

thanks.

You would have to depart and exceed the 90 days and reapply for
admission.
