PAPER PARATRANSIT TICKETS

CASH FARE

You must pay the exact fare, as drivers do not give change.

 

MONTHLY PASS ON AN OPUS CARD

Valid from the first day of the month to the last day of the month. Can be purchased at regular points of sale from the 20th of the previous month to the 15th of the current month or up to 3 months in advance from Metropolitan ticket offices. To ensure that all the systems and your driver have up-to-date information, your monthly pass must be loaded onto your Opus card at least 3 days before the beginning of the month.

Important: Notify us of your Opus card number (displayed on the back of your card) and inform us of any changes by calling 450-688-6520.

VIRTUAL PASS

If you use paratransit service only and travel regularly, the monthly virtual pass is the best option for you.

With a virtual pass, you can travel without ever having to present a ticket. To pay for your monthly virtual pass, simply send a cheque by mail to the STL. Once we receive your payment, we’ll notify the drivers that your fare has been paid for the month.

Make sure to mail your cheque in advance so we receive it before the first day of the month. Otherwise, you may be unable to use your pass from the beginning of the month.

If you wish, you can also send us a series of post-dated cheques to pay for multiple months. Ensure each cheque is dated the first day of each month. If you decide later to cancel one or more pending monthly payments, we will return your cheques to you.

Don't forget that the fares usually change every July 1st. Make sure to have the right amount in mind when you write your cheques for further months.

Before preparing your cheques, please check current rates.
