The RÉGÎM access card enables you to ride as much as you wish through the purchase of a monthly pass available at regular, student and senior rates, and which qualifies for a credit on your federal taxes! You can purchase electronic tickets or monthly passes here :
First use of an access card
- Access cards can be purchased for $5 from the drivers and at the RÉGÎM points of service. If you purchase your access card from a driver, you will have to pay the fare for that trip.
- After purchasing your card, click on “My access card” available on the website and create your account, which will be linked to your email address. You need to choose your security password and upload your photo ID. If you will be making reservations by phone, please input the same phone number in your access card account as you use when making your reservations.
- Your photo ID must be taken in front profile and show only your face (shoulders to the top of the head), and be clear enough to identify you.
- When creating your account, you can choose to receive alerts by email or text message (SMS) when your balance is low.
- Unlimited monthly passes are valid from the 1st to the end of each month.
Reduced fares (students and seniors)
- To benefit from reduced student fares, you must be a fulltime (at least 4 days/week) student (secondary, adult education, vocational education, Cégep, university) and present a valid student card from your educational establishment.
- To benefit from reduced senior fares, you must be 65 years or older, and present a photo ID with your date of birth (i.e., Medicare card, driver’s license).
- You can provide us a copy of the photo ID required to obtain student or senior discounts at any of our service points, by uploading a scan or photo of it to our website, or by attaching it to an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your user account and access card will not be activated until we have received your photo proof of identity.
Everybody can have a card, but cards can only be used by one person!
- Anyone can buy an access card, no restrictions apply.
- Cards and user accounts are only valid for 1 person: they are not transferable and cannot be shared.
Lost, damaged or stolen access cards
- Lost, damaged or stolen cards can be replaced at a cost of $5. The account balance (i.e., already purchased monthly pass or e-tickets) will be transferred to the new card.
Federal tax credit
- Approximately 15%* of the cost of your monthly pass is tax deductible. Please note that electronic and paper tickets are not tax deductible.
- You must print your receipts when purchasing passes online. It is impossible to reprint receipts for the purchase of monthly passes. It is important to keep the receipts obtained at the time of purchase.
- To qualify for the tax credit, enter the total amount paid for monthly passes between January 1 and December 31 on line 364 of Schedule 1 of your federal tax return (T1). You do not have to submit RÉGÎM receipts with your tax return, but you must keep them in order to present them to the Canada Revenue Agency if requested.
* The percentage may vary depending on your personal tax profile.
