Free ride over on 407 extension, Hwy 412

The free ride is over if you want to drive on a Hwy 407 extension through Durham Region or zip along Hwy 412.

Tolling on the 22 km stretch of Hwy 407 between Brock Road in Pickering and Harmony Road in Oshawa and on Hwy 412  between Hwy 407 and Hwy 401 kicks in Wednesday. They have been toll-free routes since they opened in June 2016, six months behind schedule.

Without a transponder, driving the entire length of the Durham 407 extension will set you back $10.41.
