How to get around in Québec City?

The best way to get around Québec City is on foot. Within the walls of Old Québec, almost all of the attractions are within walking distance. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes as the area is hilly and many of the streets are cobbled. If you get tired, the city’s Métrobus will carry you around the historic area on 4 different routes. Don’t miss taking a ride on the funicular, a steep railway connecting Haute-Ville (Upper Town) and Basse-Ville (Lower Town). If you have rented a car, it may be advisable to park it while in the city, the narrow busy streets can be difficult to navigate, and parking is scarce. Save your car for trips outside the downtown area.

Buses

Québec City’s RTC Metrobus offers a break for tired feet and respite from the cold if you visit during the winter. The 4 routes run throughout Old Québec City, stopping near many of the most popular attractions. The fare is $2.90 CAD, or you may purchase a day pass, an unlimited weekend pass, or a 5-day pass. Buses stop every 10 to 15 minutes.

Taxis

Taxis are plentiful in the city and a good option for Québec City transportation. You can hail one on the street, but you may have better luck if you head to a designated taxi stand. The meter starts at $3.59 CAD, and each extra 0.6 mile costs $1.76 CAD.


What are the visa and passport requirements when flying to Québec City?

Citizens of the United States do not need a visa to enter Canada, but need to show proof of citizenship or identity, both of which can be done by showing your passport. For foreign nationals, please check the Government of Canada website.
