Quality commitment

What is RTC’s “quality commitment”?

At RTC, we respect and listen to our riders! Our approach to quality hinges on constant improvement and on encouraging everyone to work together.

We ran rider and employee surveys and used the results to set quality criteria and implement measures to better meet the needs of the people we serve. . Each criterion comes with a corresponding commitment by RTC, as well as suggestions on ways riders can do their part to make RTC better.

We also randomly select mystery riders to travel throughout the system. And since early 2014, RTC employees have also joined in—putting themselves in the rider’s shoes. All these different approaches have contributed to a better understanding of your needs and helped us improve the public transit experience in Quebec’s capital.

The data below are from an online survey of 1,082 respondents conducted between July 12 and July 20, 2014.


RTC is in the process of developing new quality criteria. Check back often to learn more!
