Please note that wait times may vary from day to day and may be longer than usual given the current situation. Rest assured that we are doing everything we can to provide quality service. To respect physical distancing and public health regulations, the metropolitain ticket office must limit the number of individuals on site and the number of stations open at the same time.

What should I do if there doesn’t seem to be any availability at the time I want to make an appointment and my OPUS card is expired?

Due to high demand, you should book your appointment as soon as possible before your OPUS card expires to ensure you get an appointment window. Remember that you have other options if you would like to avoid making the trip:

Can I book an appointment for my child?

Yes! Just enter the information of the person who will go to the appointment.

Each appointment is only valid for one person. Once your first appointment is booked, please repeat the process to book an appointment for another person.

If you check this box, you will receive a notice next year informing you of the date of the next student OPUS card renewal period. Please note that your email will be saved only until that time and for that purpose. This option is not mandatory.

I have an OPUS card valid for next year that is lost or damaged. Do I have to make an appointment?

Yes. Go to the metropolitain ticket office and bring a piece of photo ID. You will receive a new OPUS card loaded with the fares that were left on your old card when you reported it. You will only have to pay the card issuance fee.
