In the title mol­ecule, C18H15N3O2, the dihedral angle between the quinoline and benzimidazole ring systems is 23.57 (5)°. The C atoms of the meth­oxy groups are both close to being coplanar with their attached ring systems [deviations = 0.193 (2) and −0.020 (2) Å]. An intra­molecular N—H⋯O hydrogen bond closes an S(6) ring. In the crystal, N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into C(4) chains propagating in [010]. Weak C—H⋯π inter­actions also occur.
