It turns out that “ETR” stands for “Express Toll Route,” something that I, living in the USA, did not know until it was too late to figure out a different route. (I still haven’t the slightest what QEW means, but evidently not toll road.) I’ve finally gotten the bill, $10.12 Canadian for 25.1 km on the 407ETR on my way from Toronto to Niagara after FKO. That’s $4.22 for the toll plus various fees for not having and account set up or a transponder or any of that, not spending a lot of time driving around Ontario. They have a convenient web site for payment. I can’t exactly complain about it, given that I’m in favor of this sort of thing, though the extra fees being bigger than the actual toll seems slightly annoying. It always fascinates me that each state in the US (let alone other countries) has a different way of organizing their toll roads, if any, and, obviously, it’s out of the question for neighboring states to use the same toll transponders.
