Drivers using portions of Highway 407 will have to pay additional tolls beginning in 2024. Tolls on the 108km express route from Burlington to Pickering have been suspended since 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. From February 2024, there is a change.

Highway 407 ETR is responsible for collecting these tolls. The company said the toll rates will be announced by the beginning of the month. They cited post-pandemic traffic normalization as the reason for withdrawing the four-year moratorium on toll collection.

Drivers of light vehicles, especially passenger cars and light-duty trucks, will see tolls increase by 1 to 11 cents per kilometer. But it will depend on what time of day and which zone you are driving. The company says this will cost customers an average of less than $5 a month.

The express route has four zones and has different toll rates based on the time of day the vehicles are plying. For example, drivers traveling between QWW and Highway 401 around 7 a.m. on a weekday pay a toll of about 49 cents per kilometer westbound and 55 cents eastbound. From February 1, 2024, the toll will be 58 cents for traveling the same distance westbound and 60 cents eastbound.

This toll is different from the provincial government’s toll on the highway from Pickering to Clarington.
