The STM unveils transit fares for Cartier,
de la Concorde and Montmorency stations
Montreal, April 11, 2007 - The STM unveiled the new transit fares required of transit users travelling from the Cartier, de la Concorde and Montmorency stations, beginning April 30, 2007.
The fares were set in cooperation with the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) and the Société de transport de Laval (STL), as part of an agreement in principle recently reached by the Montréal Metropolitan Community, which recognized the métro as a regional infrastructure.
“The TRAM 3 pass will serve as the basic monthly fare for all travel from the three metro stations in Laval, because we know that about 90% of all transit users from Laval already use it”, explained Claude Trudel, Chairman of the STM Board of Directors. The TRAM 4 to 8 passes as well as validated TRAM tickets for zones 3 to 8 will also be accepted, as they already are in the STM network.
The TRAM 3 passes will be sold at the Laval stations’ fare booths, at AMT’s ticket booths inside Cartier and Montmorency stations, as well as all monthly pass sales outlets. For more information about the TRAM fare schedule, transit users are invited to consult AMT’s website at http://www.amt.qc.ca/
For the 10% of occasional transit users, the STM will be selling new, single tickets featuring a Cartier, de la Concorde et Montmorency designation. The regular fare (pale yellow ticket) is set at $2.75, while the reduced fare (pale lilac ticket) is set at $1.75 for students under 18 and seniors aged 65 and over.
The TRAM 3 pass, the Cartier/De la Concorde/Montmorency tickets, the monthly CAM pass, weekly CAM Hebdo and strips of STM tickets will all be on sale in the three new stations.
