Good morning Montreal!\nToday is the first of the month and like many other people who use monthly STM OPUS cards you probably recently reloaded yours.\nAfter all nobody wants to wait in line to refill their cards today, that’s why so many people choose to either subscribe to OPUS l’Annee or they refill their card in advance to make sure it's always ready to go.\nREAD ALSO: A Montreal School Bus Got Sucked Into A Giant Pothole (Photos)\nThen there are those of us who like to procrastinate, who wait until the last minute, or who simply just forget to refill their OPUS cards.\nBut it turns out you don't actually need to worry if you haven’t refilled it yet, because your STM OPUS card is still valid for one extra day every month!\nView this post on Instagram #CUseenby @annickmfgold – Today my Concordia student life appreciation goes to my OPUS card! When the STM announced that they were extending their reduced fare for all students (not just those under 25 years of age) my heart literally skipped a beat. As a full time student and a single mom I need to be able to get around the city with the ease of public transport (especially in this weather) and though it may not seem like much, saving 33.25$ per month really makes a big difference in my life. So shout outs to all the students around the city who got the STM to make this change! I'm off to do to some research for my thesis. . . . #CUstudent #STM #stminfo #MTLtransit #metro #bus #publictransit #studentlife #opuscard #studentfare #universitystudent #university #montreal #mtlmoments #CUpride A post shared by Concordia University (@concordiauniversity) on Feb 5, 2018 at 2:03pm PST\nThis might not come as news to some, but we asked around and realized that there were actually a lot of people out there who didn’t know that their STM OPUS card from the previous month is still valid on the first day of the following month.\nSo if you paid for monthly pass in March, it still works on April 1st.\nSeriously, this is not an April fool's joke.\email@example.com via\nWe tried to find some details about this on the STM's website but came up short.\nHowever, I tested it out myself this morning to make sure it still worked and yes, it's very real.
