407 ETR vs Interstate I-90 pricing comparison.

407 ETR was brought to the province of Ontario with a thought of easing traffic on already over congested highways. Great idea to build a toll highway and it would definitely work if pricing was lower. Today we compared some of pricing of highway 407 vs our friends south of the border famous interstate I-90 and Florida's Turnpike Enterprise.

Today we recommend taking I-90 next time driving through NY State - it is not expensive at all !!!.
For travelers from United States or other provinces we recommend taking alternative routes: 403, QEW, 401, 410, DVP
or any other highway that is still free and affordable in the province of Ontario.
