The bus network and the metro system on the island of Montreal are operated by the Société de Transport de Montreal (STM), which has a comprehensive website providing network maps, fare prices, ticket and travel pass options, travel advice and a host of other useful information in English and French. There is no fare zoning in the STM network, so there is a fixed fare for each journey as its mentioned in Montreal transports map. Tickets can be purchased at metro stations from the manned ticket booth (cash only) or from one of the machines using cash, credit card or debit card. Purchase of tickets on buses must be done with the correct change (no bank notes) at the machine on boarding. Individual tickets are valid for two hours and can also be used on other STM vehicles bus/metro for transfers during that period, but not for another journey on the same metro line or bus route (for example, it can not be used for a return trip on the same line). Multiple trip tickets are also available and will slightly reduce the cost of each individual trip.
