Once you get and accept this offer, you likely will never get another offer. They will keep randomly sending different ones, until you accept.

I received one offer a long time ago. Didn't accept it and haven't seen another offer since.

I take the transponder to my friend's car (when I am not driving) or rental car and driven on 407, no issue.

Only took it for 10 trips last month.
10 trips is quite a lot for someone who avoids it as much as possible.
i used to take it once a month at most. Now i don't prolly go on it once every 2-3 months.

No. 407ETR has agreements with the transportation ministries from all the other provinces and territories and have access to their license plate databases. Same thing with most or all of the State DOTs.

In the earlier days for the first couple of years, people with US plates could drive the 407 for free but they've recified that.

$35 to use an expressway for 2 hours just for a month...plain highway robbery.

It's unlimited travel for two months for $34.99 a month so $70 + tax for unlimited 407 travel for 2 months. That's would be an amazing deal for me since I rack up ~$300 a month on the 407 and I'm a relatively "light" user.

Here’s a tip to get free KMs from the 407, they only bill you based on a fixed distance between entry and exit points. So if you make continual lane changes in a zig-zag pattern during your trip you can easily add a couple free KMs to your trip that you won’t be billed for. You’re welcome.

i get off work at 4:30 and it takes me 1.5 to get home on the 401... so, if they had offered me, I would take the offer. I think it's worth the $35 and not the 50¢/km rate... so, I avoid using the 407...

I wonder what the statistic is for usage with the higher rate.

I live right off the 407. It's convenience is really hard to resist sometimes. 10 trips is not allot.
In the past (and this is 5 years ago so prices have gone up since then) I was averaging $300 to $350 a month.

Here's a screen cap of my drive of the same distance for the last 6 years... it essentially doubled...

Based on the volume of cars I see during that time and the 407 profits, I'd say its still busy... With all the main road arteries clogged up in the city with construction, you can either induce yourself into a stroke sitting in traffic or pay and save yourself some time. The good news is that in 2098 the lease is over and the government will take back control. The bad news is that cars will be flying and they will sit on a highway that nobody will use - maybe they will build condos on it. 🤷‍♂️
