The OPUS card has an expiry date, after which it will no longer work, even if it is still loaded with fares. In such a case, you will need to buy new fares to get around.
For details on the expiration date of your OPUS card, visit the official OPUS card expiration date verification site.
If you have already bought a new OPUS card, here are the instructions to be compensated for the $6 cost of the new OPUS card, as well as to replace the remaining fares on your old card:
Print and fill out the Postal processing of expired OPUS card form (PDF - 233 KB) and attach all supporting documents needed to process your request.
Send your duly completed form and supporting documents to the AMT by post at 700 De La Gauchetière Street West, 26th floor, Montréal, QC, H3B 5M2, or drop off your documents in a sealed envelope at one of our metropolitan ticket offices.
The $6 cost for the purchase of your new OPUS card will be compensated by two (2) single tickets that can be used to get around your usual transport networks.
The unexpired fares on your old OPUS card will be replaced by the equivalent number of single tickets.
All of your replacement fares will be loaded on a disposable chip card and these must be used no later than two (2) years after they are issued.
After this date, the unused fares loaded on the disposable chip cards are not exchangeable or refundable.
OPUS card registration is a service offered to OPUS card holders. In the event of loss, theft or damage of your OPUS card, the registration service restores unexpired fares from your old card onto a new OPUS card.
