It has been about 30 years since I have driven in the GTA and would like some advise. I plan to travel from Montreal to Barrie but would like to avoid the 401 near Toronto as much as possible. As I will have a rental car from Montreal I also want to avoid any toll roads. Can anyone suggest how I may be able to bypass most of the 401. Perhaps going north around Oshawa then somhow getting over the to 400.
