Réseau de transport de la capitale (RTC)
The RTC serves Québec City, Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, Wendake, and Ancienne-Lorette. The Côte-de-Beaupré, Île d'Orléans, Jacques-Cartier, and Portneuf areas are not part of RTC territory.
The Parcours 21 route serves the Upper Town and the Old Port area and connects to the ferry terminal.
The ferry links Québec City and Lévis 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It sails on the hour and half-hour during the day and on the half-hour at night.
Québec City area taxis can be identified by the sign on their roofs. There are several companies. We suggest that you call one of them and they will send a car. You can also get a cab at one of the various taxi stands in the city.
To go from point A to point B along or across the St. Lawrence River, take the taxi boat (zodiac type). Reservation necessary.
Car rentals can be a practical way to visit areas less than an hour from downtown, such as Île d'Orléans, Côte-de-Beaupré, Jacques-Cartier, and Portneuf regions.
