Announced with great fanfare in the spring of 2018, the RTC's shuttles for the Québec City Airport (YQB) will start transporting visitors in the coming months.
The City of Quebec through the Capital Transportation Network (RTC) will now offer travelers arriving and leaving Quebec City by planes shuttles to the Quebec City Airport (YQB) every day from spring 2019. The management of the airport ensures that waiting areas and wickets giving access to RTC tickets will be created to provide users with a pleasant experience.
Two routes, the existing #76 and the #80 route that replaces the #78 route, will both serve the Jean-Lesage airport with a passage frequency every 30 minutes each. Route #76 will transit between the Airport and the Sainte-Foy area which includes the intercity bus station and the train station, every day between 5:30 and 23:00 for a total of 70 departures per day.
The route will pass on Duplessis Highway, Chemin Sainte-Foy, Rue de l’Église and Boulevard Laurier to end at the Sainte-Foy railway station.
Route #80 will be the one to seek for all our visitors at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Center-Ville since it is the one that will make the return trip between the Airport and the Downtown Quebec City area. Always with passages every 30 minutes from 6:00 to 00:30 7 days a week, this route will finally offer tourists, business people and even the inhabitants of the National Capital an alternative transportation to and from the airport site. The trip will include stops on Notre-Dame Street, Saint-Paul Street, Boulevard Wilfrid-Hamel and Saint-Vallier Street to end at the corner of Charest Boulevard and Dorchester Street, just a few blocks from our property
By increasing the transportation options between the city center and the largest airport network in eastern Quebec, the city is responding to a growing demand, particularly from Cruises passengers, whom are becoming more numerous whether for a stopover in the Port of Quebec or to board or disembark the ship. Having been named Cruise Critics’ best cruising destination in North America for a second year in a row, Quebec is attracting more and more cruise passengers every year and more efficient service between the Port and the airport had become unavoidable.
