What you need to know about reduced fares

A photo OPUS card is always registered. That is your guarantee in the event your card is lost, damaged or stolen.To have your card replaced and/or recover any valid fares that remained at the time you reported the problem, go to the STM photo studio, to the customer service centre or to a point of service. 

How do I know if I need to renew my card?

Look for the expiry date on your card. You are entitled to pay the student reduced fare until that date.
