Free transit tickets for seniors
Starting January 1, 2017 the City of Saint-Lambert will offer free transit tickets to low-income seniors (having an annual gross income of less than $27,000 for an individual or less than $32,000 for a family) aged 65 and older.
The City is pleased to offer this service, whose goal is to encourage its seniors to stay active and take part in activities being offered in the agglomeration, while helping to relieve them of the worry of the cost of transportation.
How to obtain free transit tickets
All a person needs to do is to come to City Hall (55 Argyle Avenue) with the following documents in hand:
- A reduced-fare OPUS card with photo;
- Proof of residency: copy of a tax bill or utility bill (telephone, electricity, etc.);
- A piece of identification: valid driver’s licence, health insurance card or passport;
- A statement of earnings: copy of the person’s 2015 or 2016 notice of assessment from the federal government;
- The completed eligibility application form.
If the application meets all the requirements, the person will receive 18 free tickets on their OPUS card. They may then receive 18 additional free tickets every three months, on April 1, July 1 and October 1, by coming to City Hall.
