Quebec City Transport


Walking is the easiest and most effective way to explore the compact Old City of Quebec, where most of the sightseeing opportunities are. Many visitors also enjoy hiring a bicycle and making the most of the city's system of cycle paths. If you prefer to save your feet, take a bus. Public buses are run by the Reseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC), operating between 6am and 1am (there are a limited number of night buses at weekends). Tickets are bought upon boarding with exact change or in advance from newsagents, which is cheaper. Transfers are free if a transfer slip is obtained on the first bus. One-day passes can also be bought. Taxis can be hired at ranks and the airport, ordered by telephone, or hailed in the street in the centre of the city.
