A single STM ticket now costs $3.50 over the usual $3.25 and a regular monthly pass will increase from $85 to $86.50.

On average, public transit fares will cost commuters 2% more, though Montrealers know that extra quarter makes a big difference.

The 25¢ increase for a single STM ticket represents a 7.7% increase.

This is the first time fares have been increased across the city’s transit network since the beginning of 2015.

Fares in Laval and Longueuil have not been increased since 2012, according to the ARTM.

Reduced fares for students, children and people over 65 have stayed the same.
