Credit: 407 ETR

407 ETR is introducing seasonal toll rates in 2020. This means that drivers will pay more during busy season from May 1, 2020 to October 31, 2020 and less per kilometre in the spring (February 1, 2020-April 30, 2020) and winter (November 1, 2020-January 31, 2021) when traffic is lower.

Charges and fees, including the Trip Toll Charge, Camera Charges, Transponder Lease Fee and other account fees will not increase and remain frozen at 2019 levels.

According to ETR summer traffic has been increasing and is up to 25% busier than spring and winter. In June 2019, a new one-day record was set for number of trips on the highway.

In 2018,

  • Average daily workday trips have increased 75% from 237,000 in 1999 to more than 400,000 in 2018.
  • Total annual trips have increased 75% from 71.9 million in 1999 to over 126 million in 2018.
  • The number of transponders in circulation has increased from 346,371 with a user rate of 67% in 1999 to over 1.525 million and a user rate of over 80% in 2018.
  • Total vehicle kilometres travelled per year has increased from 1.275 billion in 1999 to 2.747 billion in 2018.

407 is a tolled highway that spans the entire Greater Toronto Area travelling through Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Brampton, Vaughan, Markham, Pickering, Whitby, Oshawa and Clarington. Highway 407 ETR begins at the QEW in Burlington and ends at Brock Road in Pickering where the highway connects to Ontario’s provincially-owned toll highways 407, 412 and 418.

TOLL RATES, FEES AND CHARGES – UNCHANGED FROM 2019

Charges and fees, including the Trip Toll Charge, Camera Charges, Transponder Lease Fee and other account fees will not increase and remain frozen at 2019 levels.

  • The Heavy Vehicle per Kilometre Rate for vehicles over 5,000 kg (large trucks and buses) is double the Light Vehicle Rate. The Heavy Multiple Unit Vehicle per kilometre Rate (tractor trailers) is three times the Light Vehicle Rate.

  • A Trip Toll Charge is applied for each trip on the highway and remains at $1. Heavy Vehicles – $2, Heavy Multiple Unit Vehicles – $3. This charge was introduced in 2009 and is not a new charge nor is it a per-kilometre charge (no change from 2019).

  • The Monthly Account fee is $3.95 (no change from 2019) and only applies when trips are taken without a transponder.

  • The Monthly Transponder Lease Fee is $3.95. When a transponder is pre-paid annually, the fee is $24.50. Each additional transponder attached to the account is $1 per month or $9.95 when leased annually (no change from 2019).

  • When a vehicle’s rear licence plate has been altered, is not visible or is unrecognizable by the toll system, a $50 Unrecognizable Plate Charge, plus tolls, applies each time the vehicle uses the highway without a valid transponder (no change from 2019).

  • A $4.20 Camera Charge per trip is added when a vehicle travels on the highway without a valid transponder (no change from 2019).

  • By law, Heavy Vehicles (those with a gross weight or registered gross weight of more than 5,000 kg) must have a valid transponder. Without a valid transponder, a $50 Camera Charge plus tolls per trip is applied (no change from 2019).

  • 407 ETR reserves the right to change toll rates and fees with notice.

410,000 trips are taken on the highway each workday and total vehicle kilometres travelled on 407 ETR per year has increased from 1.275 billion in 1999, to over 126 million in 2018. 407 ETR operations have generated an average of $43 million dollars in tax revenue for the Provincial and Federal governments each year since 1999.

The Company is owned by indirectly owned subsidiaries of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (total 50.01%), Cintra Global S.E., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ferrovial S. A. (43.23%), and SNC-Lavalin (6.76%).
