The Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM) sets all public transportation fares—bus, metro, train and the REM—for the Greater Montreal Area, including Laval, Montreal, Longueuil, the North Shore and the South Shore.
Up to June 30, 2021 : The area is divided into 8 fare zones. Fares are based on the start and end points of your trip. The Laval Area is then in Zone 3, which also includes a portion of the West Island and the South Shore municipalities of Longueuil, Saint-Lambert, Brossard and Saint-Hubert.
As of July 1st, 2021 : Laval area will pass to Zone B, along with the municipality of Longueuil. Zone 3 tickets will remain valid up to July 2022, even if new ABC and ABCD zones fares are gradually offered. Here are the fare zones for public transit in the Greater Montreal:
If you want a ticket that’s valid for the train, metro and Laval buses, you’ll need one of those:
Otherwise, you’ll need to buy a new single-fare ticket each time you change public transportation networks (STL, STM, RTL or exo), except if you use an ABC or ABCD Zone ticket. TRAM and ABC/ABCD Zone tickets (all-purpose fares) are available at Metropolitan ticket offices.
STL points of sale usually only sell STL tickets, TRAM Zone 3 monthly passes and Laval paratransit passes. Select points of sale also sell TRAIN 3 tickets. Since ticket availability varies from one point of sale to another, always check before you go.
Important: You can't take the bus in Laval with a TRAM single-fare or a TRAM 8-tickets bundle.
In Laval, public transit is provided exclusively by the Société de transport de Laval (STL). We also operate shared taxis to ensure service to certain areas.
Exo buses departing from Montmorency, Cartier and Le Carrefour stations with service to the North Shore, Laurentians or Mascouche-Terrebonne do not stop in Laval.

With a valid transfer, you can take other buses within the same trip without having to buy or use a new ticket to get to your destination.
You don't need a transfer if you have a monthly pass. With a monthly pass, you can take as many trips as you want on the network(s) you paid to use. Just tap your monthly pass and hop aboard!

For example, you can’t use an STL bus transfer to take the metro or exo bus. Similarly, you can’t transfer from the metro to an STL bus because single-fare metro tickets are issued by the STM. Only ABC and ABCD Zone tickets allows you to transfert from one mode to another, but never on the same bus line.
