As of Monday, July 13, masks are mandatory on public transit in Quebec, including the STM metro and bus networks.
The measure applies to all riders aged 12 and over.
Let's all do our part by adopting this simple gesture that will make traveling safer for everyone.

The company will be handing out free reusable masks at select metro stations beginning on the same date.
"The STM will make every effort to ease up the mandatory wearing of face coverings," STM Chairman, Philippe Schnobb, said in a statement.
"Everyone has to do their part by adopting new habits that will ensure greater safety for our employees and customers."
