Although it is still unclear how long the COVID-19 virus can survive on paper money and coins, the Societe de transport de Montreal is taking no chances. The STM announced on March 24th, that they will no longer be accepting any cash payments at their self-service machines and ticket counters. ‘Cash is no longer accepted in our network.

The STM continues to take measures in order to keep public transit users and their employees safe and will continue to post updates.
