DISCOVERING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION INNOVATIONS IN QUEBEC
L’Association du transport urbain du Québec (ATUQ) is proud to contribute to the post-tour activities surrounding the UITP Global public transport summit which will be held from May 15 to 17, 2017 in Montreal.
The reference for public transportation in Quebec, the ATUQ represents the province’s nine public transportation organizations that serve its major urban centres: Montreal, Quebec City, Lévis, Laval, Longueuil, Gatineau, Trois-Rivières, Saguenay and Sherbrooke. Together, they provide over 90% of public transportation trips in Quebec.
The ATUQ is a public and political consultation and representation organization, whose mandate is to promote public transportation and its member organizations as key players in sustainable development and mobility.
On May 18 and 19, 2017, participants who have registered for the entire conference will have access to four activities that are concurrent to the Summit. A unique opportunity to discover what is being done in Laval, Longueuil, Quebec City and Gatineau.
Two types of activities will be offered
Thursday May 18, 2017 – Two short activities concentrated in the Greater Montreal area
One will take place on Montreal’s North Shore (LAVAL), and the other will be held on the South Shore (LONGUEUIL). This will allow participants who are returning abroad by plane to schedule their trip through the Montreal International Airport.
QUÉBEC-LÉVIS, in the heart of the capital of the province of Quebec, and GATINEAU-OTTAWA, in Canada's Capital Region. You will also have the opportunity to organize your return trip via the Ottawa International Airport, (please remember to change your itinerary if applicable).
Thursday, May 18 and Friday, May 19, 2017 – Two days of activities in both capitols!
1. LAVAL*: Presentation of the Société de transport de Laval’s system of preferential measures for buses
2. LONGUEUIL*: Transition from the BRT to the LRT – Champlain Bridge
3. QUÉBEC-LÉVIS: Guided tour of the Metrobus Service Centre of the Réseau de transport de la Capitale. Activities featuring prominent guests and sightseeing tours.
4. GATINEAU-OTTAWA: A short trip along the Rapibus corridor, a bus rapid transit (BRT) service unique to Quebec; a tour of the new Transit Centre operated by the Société de transport de l’Outaouais (STO) and an on-site visit of the Citadis Spirit light rail vehicle (LRV) assembly plant. Activities featuring prominent guests and sightseeing tours.
* For those whose work schedule allows it and who are interested, it is possible to participate in two visits on Thursday, May 18. The program presented by the STL in the morning and the afternoon agenda prepared by the RTL and the AMT are actually complementary.
