Cult MTL




The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) operates Montreal’s subway system (we call it the metro) and on-island city buses. To use the STM, you can buy single tickets at metro stations or with exact change on buses, and you’ll get a transfer out of the deal.

Remember that masks remain mandatory on all STM buses and metros at all times.

You can also buy a $ 6 OPUS card, which is a refillable smart card, from any metro station and some dépanneurs (convenienc­e stores) and pharmacies.

Effective July 1, 2021, standard full-fare rates are:

$ 3.50 for a single ride (one trip)

$ 6.50 for two trips

$ 5.75 for an unlimited evening ticket (6 p.m.–5 a.m.)

$14.50 for an unlimited weekend ticket (4 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday)

$10 for a day pass (valid for 24 hours from the time it’s first used)

$10 for a trip on the 747 Airport shuttle to or from Montréal– Trudeau Internatio­nal Airport

$ 20.50 for a three-day pass (valid for three consecutiv­e days after first use)

$ 30 for 10 trips (only available on an OPUS card)

$28 for a weekly pass (only available on an OPUS card)

$ 90.50 for a monthly pass (only available on an OPUS card) $ 212 for four months (available to reduced-fare users only, on an OPUS card)

All full-time students qualify for a hefty reduced-fare on transit passes. With the proper STM-approved photo ID, you can buy a monthly pass for $ 54.

The reduced-fare photo ID card is available in person at the Berri metro station photo studio (1755 Berri), but they are currently operating by appointmen­t only. Alternativ­ely, most colleges and universiti­es offer their students the possibilit­y of ordering their STM reduced-fare photo ID online using their respective intranet portals, and certain educationa­l institutio­ns organize STM photo days early in the year. There is also a mail-in option; download the form from the STM’s website, fill it out and send it in along with a passport-style photo and payment. The reduced-fare Opus IDs are $15, either online or in person.
