Fare measure for the Deux-Montagnes line

During construction of the REM, the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM), exo and Mobility Montréal partners are offering users of the exo6 Deux-Montagnes line a fare measure to encourage the use of public transit.

The fare measure in brief

  • Up to 5 months of free transportation in 2020

  • A preferential fixed rate based on the cost of a monthly pass for the Société de transport de Montréal (STM) for subsequent monthly passes, i.e. $88.50 for the regular fare or $53 for student and reduced-rate fares. On July 1, 2021, these rates were indexed to $90.50 and $54, respectively.

  • Free rail and 964 shuttles offered until December 31, 2020 as part of mitigation measures.

Certain conditions apply. See the terms and conditions.

Eligibility requirements

What are the eligibility requirements?

The fare measure is available for exo6 Deux-Montagnes line users who:

  • Registered for the 2018-2019 fare measure by September 8, 2019.

  • Reside in the catchment area for the line determined by the Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM).

  • Hold a valid OPUS+ or OPUS+ entreprise subscription.

We invite users who do not meet the eligibility requirements to see the available fares and rates in effect.

Transit fares

MTLREM and TRAMREM

Two (2) REM fares are available to exo6 Deux-Montagnes train users who are eligible for this measure.

  • The MTLREM pass provides access to transit services on the Island of Montréal only, in addition to the shuttles created for the mitigation measure.

  • The TRAMREM pass provides access to the entire metropolitan public transit network, which includes trains, buses, the métro and shuttles.

Both fares are available at a preferential rate: $88.50 for the regular fare or $53 for student and reduced-rate fares. On July 1, 2021, these rates were indexed to $90.50 and $54, respectively.

The MTLREM pass does not allow you to take the métro from Montmorency, De la Concorde, Cartier or Longueuil stations, nor to use bus services off of the Island of Montréal, with the exception of exo-operated REM shuttles.

Which fare am I entitled to?

Your transit fare is determined according to your area of residence.

  • Users who reside in another zone will automatically benefit from an MTLREM fare.

Users who do not reside in Zone 3 but already hold a TRAMREM pass as part of the fare measure may continue to use this fare.

Reduced rate, student and single fares

Reduced rate and student fares

Users who benefit from a reduced rate or student fare must have an OPUS card with photo. Since the fare may not be added to your OPUS card remotely:

  1. You will receive an email with an activation coupon.

  2. Print this coupon.

  3. Make an appointment at a metropolitan ticket office to encode your subscription on your OPUS card.

Single fares or 10-trip tickets

This measure does not include a fare reduction for single fares or 10-trip tickets.

Free months of transit

Up to five (5) months of free transit

The fare measure allows eligible users to obtain up to five (5) consecutive months of free transit in 2020.

How many free months am I entitled to?

The amount of free months depends on the date of your registration for the fare measure, up to a maximum of five (5) consecutive months.

  • Users who registered before December 10, 2019, received the months of January to May 2020 for free.

  • Users who registered between December 11, 2019, and July 10, 2020, also received five consecutive months for free, defined according to their month of registration.

  • For registrations made between July 11 and November 10, 2020, the amount of free months decreases by one per month until the end of 2020.

  • Users who register or who modify their fare after November 10, 2020, will not receive free transit.

End of validity for the 5 free months offer

The 5 free months are only available in 2020.

For subsequent years, OPUS+ subscribers will get the 12th month free, as provided for in the membership program terms and conditions.

OPUS+ entreprise subscribers will receive a monthly rebate of 8.33% on their fare.

To learn more about these advantages, we invite you to consult the terms and conditions of the OPUS+ and OPUS+ entreprise programs.
Fare measure and free 12th month for OPUS+ and OPUS+ entreprise subscriptions

The OPUS+ program gives subscribers a free month every year (the 12th month) after they have paid the 11 monthly instalments.

  • For new subscribers in 2020: as the first 5 months following your registration to the fare measure are free, the 6th month will be considered to be the 1st paid month. For example, if you register for the measure on October 5, 2020, you will obtain the fares of November and December 2020 for free; you will pay the monthly instalments from January to November 2021, and you will receive the month of December 2021 for free as the 12th free month.

  • For users who are already OPUS+ subscribers before registering for the fare measure: the monthly payment timer used to calculate your 12th free month in the OPUS+ program will be suspended during the period of 5 free months. The timer begins again in the subsequent paid month.

Cancelling your subscription

How do I end my subscription?

To terminate your subscription, you must:

  • Log in to your online account or contact exo Customer Service.

  • Provide notice no later than the 10th day of the month preceding the month you plan to terminate your subscription, failing which the cancellation will only apply on the 1st day of the following month.

For example, to terminate a subscription on November 30, 2020, the termination request must be made by November 10, 2020. If the request is received on November 11, 2020, or in the days following that date, the subscription will only end on December 31, 2020.

The ARTM and exo are not liable for a termination request made by a user after the 10th day of the month preceding the month they plan to terminate their subscription. No reimbursement will be granted, if applicable.
