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.

Personalized Multi card is mandatory (STO ID card)

You must show your Multi to the driver when boarding the bus in order to benefit from the applicable reduced 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 $0.90.

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).
