Free transit for a year? Yes, please.

If you weren’t already aware, the Montreal Metro is turning 50 this year. In honour of it’s 50th anniversary, the city has been pulling out all the stops. First, we had the Heritage Montreal Metro tours, and now we have an STM contest giving Montrealers the chance to win free transit for a whole year!

According to the STM website, one lucky Montrealer will be chosen to receive free transit for one entire year.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is snap a pic of the Metro and publish it on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #50ansmétromtl.

Winners will be chosen randomly and the last day to submit your photo is October 2nd.

In addition, the people’s choice photos will be published on the STM website on October 14th in celebration of the metro’s 50th anniversary.

Whether you’re looking for Instagram fame or metro fortune, you have no excuse not to take a pic of the metro while you’re waiting for the next train.

Take a look at some of the inspiring photos posted so far:
