Proof of eligibility for paratransit services
You must show your OPUS paratransit ID card to the driver when boarding.
Proof of payment
When you board a minibus or taxi, the driver notes your fare payment on his trip sheet: OPUS card, cash or ticket (magnetic card). Your OPUS card or the note on the driver’s trip sheet is your proof of payment.
At any time, STM inspectors can proceed with fare control by asking your proof of payment during your transportation aboard our vehicles. Without this proof, fines of up to $500 (excluding fees) may be imposed.
