It appears public transit fares in Montreal are going up in the new year.

Projet Montréal councillor Laurence Lavigne says she received documents from the STM with the new fare schedules.

She has tweeted a photo of those documents.

According to the documents, the cost of a single fare will go up from $3.00 to $3.25.

The cost of a monthly pass will go up $79.50 to $82.

STM spokeswoman Isabelle Tremblay would not confirm the fare hike.

"We have nothing to say until our press conference tomorrow," she said.
