Supporting public transit means supporting the Quebec economy

  • The economic spinoffs from public transit are three times higher than those from private transportation by automobile*.
    .
  • Quebec has several companies that manufacture public transit equipment..
    • Investing in this sector consolidates our industrial base and contributes to the development of expertise.
    • The annual revenue in this industrial sector is more than two billion dollars.
  • To meet the needs resulting from its dependence on automobile transportation, Quebec imported no less than $13.7 billion in oil and $7 billion in automobiles in 2012. Together, these imports  represent 94% of Quebec’s trade deficit.

Comparison of spinoffs based on a $10-million expenditure

10 millions de dépenses dans le transport collectif engendre 184 emplois

10 millions de dépenses dans l'industrie automobile engendre 66 emplois.


The economic impact on the STM’s normal activities was calculated by the firm E&B Data.
