Québec Premier Philippe Couillard and Maine Governor Paul Le Page announced the first route of the electric corridor between Québec and Maine, linking Québec City to Portland.
This new initiative aims to encourage Quebecers and Americans to opt for sustainable, clean transportation. At the same time, they can take action against climate change. Increasing electric vehicules is a priority for the government of Québec and is part of its Transportation Electrification Action Plan.
750,000 visitors traveled between Québec and Maine in 2014. Nearly 95% do it by car.
