Quebec City, about a three-hour drive northeast of Montreal, is the capital city of the province of Quebec, and the region has a population of about 716,000. It is one of the oldest cities in North America, having been founded in 1608, and it is said that it is the city with the most European flavour. It is also the only fortified city in North America (i.e. there is a wall around the old city.) There are two main transit systems in the area, the RTC, serving Quebec City and the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, and the STL, serving Lévis, Charny and other communities along the south shore of the river.
