Before submitting a claim, please read the following information carefully.
Without prejudice, the following is for information purposes only and has no legal validity.
Physical damage to your vehicle
If physical damage is caused to your vehicle by an STM vehicle (bent fender or broken mirror, for example), you must contact your car insurance company.
Under its incorporating Act, the STM is exempt from liability to the owners of property lost inside its buildings or rolling stock. If you have lost an object, refer to the Lost and Found section of this Web site.
If you have been the victim of a crime inside the STM’s buildings or rolling stock, you may contact the CSST office in charge of compensating crime victims (IVAC).
Personal injury aboard an STM vehicle
If you have suffered a personal injury aboard a motor vehicle owned by the STM, you should submit your claim to the Société de l’Assurance Automobile du Québec (SAAQ).
Even if you have suffered damages inside the buildings or rolling stock of the STM, its employees are not liable for those damages unless a wrong has been committed.
