INDUSTRY - Public transit

There are numerous public transit manufacturers in Québec

The sector's performance depends on the presence of over 150 companies in Québec involved in the manufacturing of parts, components and systems for coaches and urban buses.

The two main trends in this sector are on the one hand, to produce fuel-efficient and less polluting vehicles, either with hybrid engines or by using lighter materials, and on the other hand, to provide a vehicle that meets the current needs of the population, including those of the disabled and the elderly.

A diversified industry located all across Québec

  • 38% of companies are from the Chaudière-Appalaches region
  • 21% do business in the Laurentides region
  • 13% are located in the Centre-du-Québec region
