Kids ride free on the bus and metro for the summer vacations


Starting today till August 27, kids can ride the bus and métro for free if they are travelling with an adult with a valid transit fare.

Good news for parents planning activities in Montréal during summer: thanks to STM’s Family Outings promotion, children can ride the STM’s public transit system for free. In addition, several STM partners will be offering generous discounts to fare-card holders, allowing families to take full advantage of their holidays.

Get around for less 
The promotion is always valid on weekends and will be available all summer long, from June 22 till August 27. The Family Outings program allows up to five children aged 11 and under to travel for free when they are accompanied by an adult with a valid fare card.

Discounts for STM transit users
To help families make the most of their week off, a number of STM partners will offer discounts and promotions to customers with valid transit fares. Outdoor activities, museums, shows, theatre: there’s something for everyone, and both kids and adults will find what they’re looking for.

Take a break from your car
For the summer holidays, the STM suggests that drivers leave their cars at home, forget about the hassle of finding a parking spot, and simply allow themselves to be chauffeured by their own personal drivers whilst helping reduce GHG. Don’t forget that for kids, riding the bus or the métro is not only lots of fun, it’s awesome!
