Impacts de la restructuration du réseau d'autobus de la Ville de Québec sur l'accessibilité aux emplois et la mobilité professionnelle : 1991-2001
This study concerns Quebec City public transport system. When it was reorganized in 1992 two specific service transits were set up: the “Express” (routes between residential areas and the city center via highways) and the “Métrobus” (two high frequency bus routes operated on priority lanes during rush hours). Using GIS and spatial statistics, we verify whether the transport system reorganization has enabled to improve Quebec City’s residents job accessibility and professional mobility, especially for women who are the main users. Results show that although journey times have significantly been reduced, bus modal share kept decreasing between 1991 and 2001, even in Métrobus lanes. Besides, the increased share of women on the labour market does not seem to be directly linked to the improvement of job accessibility.
