Use your OPUS card  in Quebec City

Your OPUS card with Maestro status is accepted without any additional charges by the Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC).

How can you achieve Maestro status?

All eligible subscribers will be automatically contacted by email, around the first day of the 13th month of their annual subscription.

You are not obliged to activate the Maestro status, and there are no additional fees. However, to enjoy the benefits of Maestro status, you must replace your existing OPUS card with a new photo ID OPUS card. To do so, just go to one of the STM's six service points and bring with you:

  • A copy of the email you received as a loyal subscriber (after the twelfth month of your subscription) showing you are entitled to Maestro status
  • A photo ID
  • Your existing OPUS card charged with your annual fare

Please note:

OPUS à l’année and OPUS & Cie subscriptions are available only to those paying regular fares. They are annual subscriptions consisting of twelve monthly fares. OPUS à l’année subscriptions are available to individuals, while OPUS & Cie discounts are offered by participating employers to their employees. These programs feature a number of advantages:

  • No waiting in line
  • A free OPUS card
  • Guaranted against loss or theft
  • Automatic charging of fares
  • Income tax receipt available online
