By News Staff

Starting July 1 it’s going to cost a little bit more to take public transit in Montreal.

The Greater Montreal-area public transport authority (ARTM) has announced that fares are going up slightly.

Starting July 1, single-unit, single-zone bus passes will increase by 25 cents to $3.75.

Ten-packs of single-zone passes will go up to $32.50. Monthly passes in single zones will go from $94 to $97.

There is no fare increase for commuters who travel between Montreal and either Laval or Longueuil, who will continue to pay the same price: $4.50.

Ten-packs of two-zone passes will go up to $42.50 and monthly passes for two-zone passes will go from $150 to $155.

REM users will also need to purchase a two-zone pass.
