Getting to Québec City

Jean Lesage International Airport is just 20 minutes away from the Convention Centre. Our section on Getting here explains how to travel to Québec City by car, train, plane, or bus.

Getting to the Québec City Convention Centre

The Québec City Convention Centre is completely central:

  • Just 20 minutes by car from Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB), which offers over 350 flights each week, many of them direct
  • Just 10 minutes from the bus and train station (Gare du Palais)
  • Within walking distance (5–20 minutes) of numerous natural, cultural, and historic sites and attractions (Old Québec, the Plains of Abraham, Parliament Hill, the Old Port, the Petit Champlain district, the gallery district, Saint-Roch, and Grande Allée)
  • Just 30 minutes from the great outdoors and a wealth of outdoor activities in beautiful surroundings

Getting around – In Town

Get around safely and sustainably with Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC), Québec City’s public transit system.

RTC offers passes for unlimited travel on weekends or for five consecutive days—very handy for getting around the city during a convention.

Given the Convention Centre’s terrific location amidst major hotels and steps away from Old Québec, walking is always a great active transportation option.


Drivers who plan a visit to the Québec City Convention Centre can offer a ride on to find passengers looking for transportation solution. Whether for it’s for short or long distances, ridesharing is a convenient, economic and environmentally friendly way of travelling.


A pedestrian tunnel links the Québec City Convention Centre to four indoor parking lots with a total of 4,175 parking spaces. The car parks are managed by Indigo and Société Parc-Auto du Québec.

There are two parking spots for the charger: a service spot while the car is hooked up and a vacant spot for the wait time after the car is charged.
