RTC Public Transportation Network

reseau de transport de la capitale

The Quebec City public transportation network is called the RTC (Reseau de Transport de la Capitale). Its mission is to enable citizens and visitors to enjoy the city at its best using public transportation.


The whole cultural life of Quebec City is served by the RTC. The organization contributes to the success of many special events that punctuate the life of the capital.The Best Western PLUS Downtown Quebec is located right next to an important city bus transit terminal named Place Jacques-Cartier. This strategic location allows our guests to have easy access to all the attractions of the city and its surroundings. Leaving from our hotel, you have a direct access to the Convention Center, the Cruise Terminal, Laurier Quebec shopping mall, the Abraham Park, the Ice Hotel and many more!


Here are the routes most commonly used by our guests. Please, be aware that multiple rates are available. One way trip would cost you 3,50$, payable directly to the bus driver, an unlimited day would cost you 8,25$+ taxes, a 2 days pass (week-end) would be 15$ and a 5 consecutive days unlimited pass would be 21.50$ + taxes, all purchasable in a local pharmacy.
