That time of day 407 is the way to go, however it is an electronic toll way, using a transponder. They claim they are sending a bill re the lic. plate number, but my brother is from PA and he has not received any billing for any time he uses the 407. Just a note the hiway was privatized and is owned by a Spanish company, I assume the same one that is building a large toll way around Dallas/Ft. Worth. From 410 to the end it might cost (est.) $15.00, but it will be worth it to stay off the 401 that time of day.
At the end of the 407 keep straight on hi-way 7 and than take #12 south to pick up the 401. Watch the speed on these two roads the locals work hard catching folks. This is exit 410 and the Kingston exit is 617, 207 Kilometers & at a 120K per hour ( about 75 mph) depending on Toronto traffic 10Pm looks realistic. Once you clear Oshawa the traffic opens up and moves fairly well. Looking for a cup of coffee with a slice of apple pie, stop at the Big Apple, exit 497, can't miss it.
I hope this has not missed your departure, or you can pick this up while in Mississauga.
