Public transit fare to rise in Montreal
Montreal public transit fares are going up January 1, 2012.
City councillor Marvin Rotrand says a fare hike is merited because of improved service.
"What we're hearing from riders is that people don't mind paying a little bit more, if they see tangible results," said Rotrand, who is also the STM vice-chair.
New fares as of Jan. 1, 2012
- Regular monthly pass: $75.50 (2011 fare is $72.75.)
- Reduced-fare monthly pass for students, seniors: $43.75 (2011 fare is $41.)
- The cost of a single-trip ticket stays the same, at $3.
