Boarding bus via all doors

Good news! Boarding through all doors is allowed:

  • on articulated buses
  • at bus stops located at métro stations
  • for clients holding an OPUS or L'occasionnelle card (validation is mandatory)1
  • from 5 am to 7 pm

How it works

  • On articulated buses where the new card reader is functional, you can board through rear doors if you are holding an OPUS or L'occasionnelle card. You now have to validate your card. If you are using other fare cards, you must continue to use the front doors to board the bus.1
  • Boarding the rear doors is allowed from 5 am to 7 pm.
  • You can board through all doors on bus lines with articulated buses, at bus stops located at métro stations:

Texte important

For the 139-439 lines, passengers can board via the rear doors at all bus stops when there are sufficient numbers, as this will apply once the Pie-IX SRB (bus rapid transit) line is implemented.

It's an option

Boarding the bus via all doors is being implemented to make boarding easier and faster. However, customers can still enter at the front door if they want to; boarding via the rear doors is an option for pass holders.

Rear doors

All fares on :

  • OPUS card
  • L'occasionnel card

Front door

  • Cash fare
  • Tickets

  Valid transit fare required, offenders are subject to a fine

  1. On the few articulated buses where the card readers are not functionnal yet, only clients with a valid Weekly/Montly/Annual pass are allowed to board by the rear doors. In that case, we will still work with an Honour system for fare payment meaning that if you are qualified to board through the rear doors, you don't have to go validate your payment in front.
