Full-time Student Fares (Age 12 to 16)

Frequent travel

Fares on a Multicard 

If you plan to travel frequently on the Société de transport de l'Outaouais (STO) system, get the Multi card to take advantage of the passes that can be loaded on it.

Because paratransit vehicles are not equipped with readers, it is not possible to use the e-wallet on the Multi card. Consequently, the cash fare for paratransit is the same as the fare paid using the e-wallet on the STO's regular system.

Cash

The cash fare is the best option for occasional trips.

The exact fare is required, because bus drivers cannot give change. Also, they cannot issue receipts or accept tips. Pennies are not accepted.

STO ID card is mandatory

You must show your Multi to the driver when boarding the bus in order to benefit from the applicable reduced Student fare. If you do not show your card, the driver has the right to ask you to pay the difference between the reduced fare and the basic fare, which is $0.80.

Multi

The Multi is a smart card that:

  • Personalized and not transferable because your name, rider category and photo appear on it. You are therefore the only person who can use your card;
  • Loaded with one or more STO pass giving you access to the paratransit service;
  • Used as an ID card because it confirms your right to use a reduced Student ticket.

Conditions for obtaining a Multi

You can get your Multi card exclusively at one of the 4 service points  for $8 (tax exempt). Only residents of Quebec are eligible for the card.

Your student status must be renewed every September at a cost of $8 (tax exempt).

The following supporting documents are required to obtain a card:

Secondary students:

  • Proof of residency in Quebec such as Quebec health insurance card (issued by the RAMQ) or Quebec driver's licence (issued by the SAAQ);
  • Proof of age (under 21 years of age on September 1 of the year of issue) such as Quebec health insurance card (issued by the RAMQ) or Quebec driver's licence (issued by the SAAQ);

  • Proof of residency in Quebec such as Quebec health insurance card (issued by the RAMQ) or Quebec driver's licence (issued by the SAAQ);

Lost, damaged, stolen or defective card

  • If your card is lost, damaged or stolen, go to one of the 4 service points to get a new Multi card and its contents for a fee of $10 (non-taxable). If your card had no cash value, a fee of $8 (non-taxable) is payable.
  • If your Multi card is defective, it will be replaced at no charge.

Monthly pass

Unlimited travel for the entire month!

The monthly pass is loaded on the Multi It gives you unlimited travel for the entire month (from the first to the last day of the month). It is ideal if you use the paratransit service several times a month.
