Fare reform - Zone C

How will the fare reform affect you?

It is, firstly, a simplification of the number of fare zones. The entire metropolitan area now has four main zones.

This reform modifies transit fares and passes but does not affect existing transit services. Note that transit services may include certain destinations outside the four fare zones.

In July 2021, some transit fares will be replaced by “All Modes” fares, while others will be maintained for a few more years.

Integration of regular and paratransit systems

The ARTM is seeking a greater integration of transit services between the regular and paratransit network. Over the next few years, major construction and upgrades are planned for the regular network to make it more accessible to people with functional limitations.

This integration also involves harmonizing passes and fares. Beginning with the first phase of implementation in July 2021, the new “All Modes” fares will be offered to regular and paratransit users.

Introducing the new “All Modes” fares

What is an “All Modes” fare?

This fare will allow you to use all modes of regular and paratransit transportation available in system you use and in the area where you are travelling.

By the end of the reform, all transit fares will be replaced by “All Modes” fares. This will be a gradual transition over the next four years.

All Modes ABC

An “All Modes ABC” fare allows you to travel anywhere across zones A, B and C.

* The REM will start operating in 2022. 

“All Modes C”

An “All Modes C” fare allows you to travel in all municipalities included in zone C in the northern and southern suburbs.

Personalized fare schedule

Good to know

Some paratransit fares will be replaced by an “All Modes” C or “All Modes ABC” fare

If you no longer see the transit fare you used to buy, it has been replaced by an “All Modes” fare.

Please note that you must have a valid fare in the area where you are travelling.

  • If you are travelling only in zone C, an “All Modes C” fare will be sufficient.
  • If you are travelling through zone B (Laval or Longueuil) or zone A (island of Montréal), you must have an “All Modes ABC” fare.
  • If you are travelling through zone D (outside the ARTM territory), you must have an “All Modes ABCD” fare.

If a fare is removed, it does not mean that the bus service associated with that fare no longer exists. It means that you need an “All Modes” fare to access it.

The TRAM 5,6 and 7 fares will be replaced by an ”All Modes ABC” fare.

Discontinuation of multi-trip passes

In order to harmonize practices and reduce the number of transit passes, paper ticket booklets (6 and 10 trips), punch cards (10 and 20 trips) and paper ticket booklets ($0.50, $2.00, $5.00) are being replaced by the “1 trip cash” or “1 trip paper ticket,” depending on your sector.

The “1 trip cash” fare allows users to pay cash for their trip at the time of boarding.

  • Cash payment offers users greater flexibility, as they do not have to go to a sales outlet to buy a fare.
  • Note that users must pay the exact amount because drivers do not provide change.
  • Payment must be made every time you board. It is not possible to pay for a return trip at the same time.

      Frequently asked questions

      The current fare schedule is the result of combining 17 fare schedules (for the former intermunicipal boards of transport and the current public transit agencies) and more than 700 fares. They were particularly confusing in the northern and southern suburbs. The last major reform was carried out in 1998, and the situation has changed significantly since then, including the creation of the ARTM, which is responsible for fares for the metropolitan area. Fare reform became even more necessary with the integration of public transit across the metropolitan area. It will greatly simplify the user experience.

      • 1 fare schedule instead of 17 (once the reform is complete)
      • 4 fare zones instead of 8
      • About 100 transit fares compared to more than 700
      • Harmonized reduced fares for children and students

      The impact on fares will be neutral or positive for 95% of users. Beginning in 2022, during a period of 4 years, support measures will gradually mitigate the few fare increases that are implemented. These increases are primarily associated with the integration of the REM and the discontinuation of TRAIN fares.

      There will be 4 zones:

      • Zone A: Island of Montréal (formerly zones 1 and 2) – July 2022
      • Zone B: Agglomeration of Longueuil and Municipality of Laval (formerly zone 3) –
        July 2022
      • Zone C: Southern and northern suburbs (formerly zones 4, 5, 6 and 7) –
        July 2021
      • Zone D: Outside the ARTM limit – July 2021

      A multi‑zone fare allows users to travel through more than one zone. A single‑zone fare allows users to travel within one zone.

      For example, an ABC fare will allow you to travel in zones A (Agglomeration of Montréal), B (Agglomeration of Longueuil and Municipality of Laval) and C (southern and northern suburbs). A zone C fare will allow you to travel within zone C only.

      No. All Modes fares for zones C, D, ABC and ABCD will be added. In addition, certain TRAIN, TRAM and sector fares offered in these zones that are more expensive than the All Modes fare will no longer be sold. In July 2022, further changes to the fare schedule will be made. For more details please visit: www.artm.quebec/refonte-tarifaire/ (French only).

      Yes, an All Modes fare for zone C can be used throughout zone C. However, if you travel through zone A, an AB or ABC fare will be required.

      Yes, fare categories will remain unchanged. You will be able to purchase monthly All Modes fares for zones C and D at reduced rates for students, children and seniors. In addition, the student fare reduction will be harmonized at 40% throughout the ARTM’s territory.

      Beginning on July 1, all students 18 years of age and older who meet the student fare eligibility criteria will get a 40% discount when purchasing a monthly pass.

      OPUS+ and OPUS+ entreprise subscribers in zones C and D will be affected by the fare reform on July 1, 2021. All affected subscribers will receive an email with instructions on how to make changes to their transit fare in their customer account on the exo site, if applicable.

      All affected subscribers in zones C and D will need to modify their customer account on the exo website in order to obtain the correct transit fare. Emails will be sent to affected subscribers to inform them of the steps they need to take.

      Yes, all OPUS+ subscription privileges will be maintained.

      All subscribers in zones C and D will need to modify their customer account on the exo website, even if their subscription is suspended. Emails will be sent to affected subscribers to inform them of the steps they need to take.

      Students who need to modify their tickets must do so in their customer account. Emails will be sent to affected subscribers to inform them of the steps they need to take.

      No. Your employer will be informed of the changes by Transportation Management Centres, which manage the OPUS+ entreprise subscription programs.

      Yes, fares withdrawn from the price list on July 1st, 2021 can still be validated beyond this date.
