Motorists in greater Montreal will have to dig deep to pay their registration tax, which will increase from $59 to $150 to help finance public transportation in the region.

The mayors of the Metropolitan Community of Montreal (CMM) indicated that they were “forced” to adopt this new regulation on Thursday, which will come into force on January 1, 2025.

The price will thus more than double for motorists who have a “passenger vehicle” in the region compared to the amount paid in 2024.

This increase was voted in order to absorb the residual of $361 million which is not covered after the government contribution of $200 million to finance public transport, explained the elected officials.

“Recommended by the CMM Transport Commission in a February 2019 report, the tax on the registration of passenger vehicles makes it possible to meet both this objective and the needs of the population in terms of sustainable mobility, while contributing to the reduction of GHG emissions and road congestion,” recalled the CMM in a press release.

This tax has been collected since 2011 on the island of Montreal, but was extended last year to all municipalities of the CMM and the City of Saint-Jérôme.
