À la carte tickets
The STM’s regular fare tickets have been replaced by a card with a magnetic stripe containing one trip. This card also serves as your transfer and your proof of payment.
Simple and easy to use
In the métro
On the bus
Remember to keep it with you until the end of your trip. It’s your proof of payment.
Once you’ve passed the turnstiles, when you’re in the station’s corridors or on its platforms, aboard the métro or in the bus, always keep your
valid transit fare with you. During fare control, it’s your proof of payment. Thank you.
When you use tickets à la carte to pay your fare, the date and time are printed on the back of the magnetic card. So if you must use more than one STM
vehicle (bus or métro) to reach your destination, you need only insert your card again in the appropriate slot of the fare control equipment to validate your
transfer. Transfers are valid for 120 minutes from the time printed on the back of the magnetic card.

A transfer does not allow transit users to carry out a return trip or to interrupt their trip and later take another bus on the same route. One cannot take the métro again using a transfer issued in the métro.
