The free ride is over for drivers who use the new section of Highway 407 and Highway 412 east of Toronto.

The highways opened last June and motorists were able to travel free of charge while the tolling infrastructure was being installed and calibrated. But starting on Wednesday, motorists will now have to pay to use them.

The new Highway 407 runs eastward from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa, while Highway 412 connects Highway 407 to the 401.

The government said the tolls will be lower than those on Highway 407 ETR.

The rates are expected to be 15 per cent lower during off-peak periods and 30 per cent lower during peak periods.

Motorists can use the same transponder that is used to drive on the privately operated Highway 407 ETR (Express Toll Route), but the revenue will go to help fund infrastructure and transit projects across the province.
