Since 2011, the Complicité du Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC) program has been recognizing the exceptional organizations and companies that encourage their employees and members to use public transit in the greater Quebec City area.

Complicité Awards

RTC proudly presents the Complicité Awards to encourage the development of public transit and promote efficient, economical, and eco-friendly transportation. Companies, organizations, and individuals in greater Quebec City who would like to be recognized for their initiatives to develop and promote public transit are encouraged to apply for the Complicité Awards. For businesses, being recognized by the RTC’s Complicité program is:

  • A leg up in a fiercely competitive market
  • A big selling point in employee recruitment and retention
  • A way to underscore social and environmental commitment

Award Categories

Businesses can be nominated for the Complicité Awards in one of the following two categories:

Partner of the Year

An organization, company, or institution that has stood out over the year for its contribution to sustainable mobility and the concrete measures it has implemented to make it easier for people to get around, particularly by encouraging them to use public transit.

Best in Mobility

An innovative mobility-related project or product that strengthens the public transit offer and helps meet the diverse travel needs of the population, taking into account the specificities of the greater Quebec City area.

Winners are invited to the Complicité gala, where they will receive a plaque and public recognition to commemorate their contribution to sustainable mobility.

Nominations are not yet open for the 2020 awards. For more information:
