The details are in this STM press release, which, following their “Fuck You Anglos” policy, is available only in French.
- The price ($3.50) will come off the September bus pass (making it $61.50 instead of $65). You can get a cash refund if you don’t plan to buy a September pass, but only at select metro stations (Angrignon, Lionel-Groulx, McGill, Berri-UQAM, Honoré-Beaugrand, Côte Vertu, Snowdon, Bonaventure, Mont-Royal, Jean-Talon, Montmorency and Longueuil–Université-de-Sherbrooke), at select times (6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.) and on select dates (Aug. 20-24). Not that they’re making it hard or anything.
- Reduced fare passes will be compensated $2.00, making a $35 pass $33.
- You must still have the May 2007 bus pass, to prove you’re eligible. Hand it in when you buy your September pass at any metro station, and you’ll get a receipt for federal tax purposes.
- Holders of TRAM-3 passes must use the Montmorency metro station or AMT points-of-sale (like the ones at Central Station and Windsor Station). It’s unclear if this also applies to TRAM-1 and TRAM-2 passes, but I imagine it would.
- Holders of weekly passes can apparently go fuck themselves, since they already knew about the strike when they bought their passes. (The news says they’ve already been compensated, but I don’t remember that.)
- The compensation is calculated based on the hours during the month that service was not provided (60% of the day for four days).
