Promoting public transit and intermodal transportation through fare incentives

To reduce solo car use and improve traffic flow within its territory, the ARTM has implemented promotional fares for public transit users.

Free for children

Have fun!

Free at all times
for children

Children aged 11 and under can travel for free on public transit at all times across the metropolitan area while accompanied by a person aged 14 or older who is supervising them and holds a valid transit fare.

This person may not accompany more than five children.

To help you plan your family trips in public transit, use Chrono mobile app!

Student discount

As a student in the metropolitan Montréal area, you can take advantage of a 40% discount on your public transit fare if:

  • you are a full-time student
  • you are 18 years of age or older
  • you purchase an eligible transit fare, which includes most monthly passes.

Find out if the student discount applies to your fare by consulting the fare schedule.

To benefit from this discount, you must show proof of full-time school attendance and obtain an OPUS card with photo.
