OPUS card

The OPUS card is your loyal travel companion! The chip in the card allows you to load RTM and Greater Montréal transportation agency fares.

Buy it

Reload it

The OPUS card is very versatile! It can be loaded with all kinds of fares (membership, monthly pass, 1 or 6 trips) and for various transit agencies. You can reload it:

Replace it

The OPUS card doesn't last forever! It has a useful life of 4 years, after which it stops working, even if it is still loaded with fares. Replace your OPUS card before it expires and recover the valid fares loaded on it by heading to one of our metropolitan ticket offices. Your unexpired fares will be transferred on another card. Check your card's expiration date.

If you have already bought a new OPUS card, visit the Postal processing of expired OPUS card page to see the instructions.

Register it

Why register your card? It's your guarantee in the event of loss, theft or damage! Your new OPUS card will reflect your unexpired transit fares.
