Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec’s Minister of Transport Francois Bonnardel earlier this week announced that CA$3.3 billion in total government funding will be contributed to establish a public transit network in Quebec City. 

The planned network would extend over 34 miles and include a 14-mile tram line, two new bus lines and improvements to the current bus system, according to a press release issued by Trudeau's office. 

Four transportation hubs would also be built so that riders could transfer from one system to another within the network.

The Canadian government will invest up to CA$1.2 billion in the network through the Investing in Canada infrastructure program; Quebec's government will invest CA$1.8 billion; and the city of Quebec will provide CA$300 million.
