Hi thank very much for the info.
We are staying in St. Jean de Ille de Orleans and want to spend a day in old Quebec. There is a PLU bus with an 8:30 to the city and 2 returns in the afternoon but we were looking for an alternative. I had not thought the Parc-O-Bus spot in Beauport would fill up so early and that walk from the station would be out of the question because I'm 72 and still recovering from a knee operation.
I found 2 parking lots on Rue Pierre-Olivier-Chauveau at number 2 and also an underground lot at Ville de Quebec on the same street, numbering about 1100 spots together. Would there be spots there about 10am?
I drive a Lincoln MKT which can be a challenge in a tight spot. There are 5 of use and 4 are over 70, so any advice would be very welcome. I'm the only bus fan, the rest are tourists.
Since you are a party of 5, that's change the game and i can advise that it will be cheaper for all of you parking downtown then take a RTC bus.
For the two lots, the one under city halls has height limit of 1.83m, the other one is lower IIRC. Your car seems to be around 1.70m so it would fit under city hall but not sure at the other one. If not, they are parking lots at Place d'Youville (2.13m) and Place Québec (1.83m, entry on St-Joachim street). They are other parking site available, check with Indigo park or SPAQ, they are the two mains operator in the city. For avaliabiliy, if your coming weekdays it may be complicated but on week-ends no need to worry
For visiting, you could use Tours du Vieux Québec red double decker hop-on hop-off route that would limit your walking time. https://www.toursvieuxquebec.com/en/forfait/Double-Decker
Departure point for the double deckers are at Place d'Armes, right next to the Château Frontenac.
Thanks very much
