With 'back to school' and today being the first of the month, getting an OPUS card can be pretty annoying and time consuming.
But nevertheless, the STM want to encourage more people to start using public transportation. And they're doing that by giving away free OPUS card pre-loaded with 10 rides.
The STM workers have been spotted at random intersections handing out the cards. If you happen to spot them you have until September 8th to redeem you free OPUS card online.
