Building an Iconic Tramway Line in a Historical City: An Overview of Quebec City's Future Tramway
Following decades of studies and varied plans, Quebec City is moving forward with their first new tramway line. Join us as we explore the various aspects of the project in this brief overview. The line will measure 19.3 km and go from Le Gendre to Estimauville, passing through the most important hubs of the city. It will be the first tramway line in the city since the closure of its historic streetcar network in 1948 due to declining ridership. The inspiration for the new line can be found in France, with its tramway renaissance and similar focus on design, ease of access and mobility.
