Pick Up and Drop Off Passengers

Are you picking up a traveler arriving in Quebec City or dropping off a loved one who is taking a flight? Two options are available to you:


Drive to the appropriate pick-up or drop-off point along Principale Street. Signage (blue signs above Principale Street) will guide you to the arrivals curbside or the departures curbside. The pick-up and drop-off spaces are for immediate embarking or disembarking of passengers. Waiting is not permitted in those spaces. In addition, there is limited capacity. You cannot park your vehicle. You must remain in your vehicle at all times. Do not use the spaces provided for cabs, buses or other means of transportation.

Waiting Zone (CellPARQ)

If you are picking up a passenger, take advantage of our vehicle waiting zone. This waiting zone is called CellPARQ.

CellPARQ allows you to stay in your car, protected from the elements, and to pick up your loved ones in front of the terminal when they inform you of their arrival by phone or text message.

Your loved ones will be able to tell you where to pick them up by giving you the number of the space in front of the terminal where they are waiting for you.

The use of CellPARQ is FREE. This vehicle waiting zone is accessible from Principale Street and is located BEFORE the parking lots entrance.

The CellPARQ is allowed to be used for a maximum of 60 minutes. You cannot leave a vehicle without a driver. Towing is at your expense.
