Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM)
The Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM) is a regional transit authority that was established on June 1, 2017.
The ARTM is responsible for the strategic planning, coordination, funding and pricing of public transit, including paratransit.
The ARTM establishes the fares for the various services offered by the 4 public transit agencies (OPTC), including buses, metro and the STM paratransit program.
The ARTM and the STM are bound by a service agreement that sets out the transportation offering that the STM must deliver to its customers. The STM is responsible for operational planning and service delivery, as well as information and customer service.
The ARTM can also entrust projects or responsibilities in delegated management to the STM.
The ARTM’s territory includes the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal, the Kahnawake First Nations reserve and the city of Saint-Jérôme.
