The registered photo ID OPUS card is the only card you need to purchase and use STM reduced fare transit passes, as it replaces the carte d’Or. It holds your valid transit fares (monthly pass, multiple single fares, etc.), your photo and reduced fare privilege.
The different types of transit fares that can be loaded on the card are all available from métro fare collectors or fare vending machines, as well as from any one of the 500 retail outlets located in a neighbourhood near you.
Because the card is registered, it will be possible to recover the fare balance should the card be damaged, lost or stolen. Please note, however, that a replacement fee will apply.
How to request a card ?
Note: If you already have a carte d’Or, simply bring it and you will be given a registered photo ID OPUS card
The card is valid for seven (7) years.
At all times, a person 65 and over who wants to use an STM bus or métro can pay the reduced fare in cash (exact amount only aboard buses), but only upon presenting a photo ID OPUS card.
