  1. 1705 seen on route 24 at around 4:00 PM. Zero changes on the exterior as far as I know
  2. I did see it once in late-January right after the start of all those trip cancellations, though not once this month .
  3. Looks like another Rapibus red light bandit motorist (in French). https://twitter.com/Urgence07/status/816427172437118977?lang=en
  4. Strike vote occuring today. Hey thanks for the notice for that one. Article is in French. http://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1005237/possible-mandat-de-greve-a-la-sto
  5. Routes 1, 7 and 9 will be on detour this weekend as westbound Daly will be blocked for construction. They will stop westbound on the Mackenzie King Bridge. The shorter trips on the 1 and 7 unless I'm wrong will start at Mackenzie King westbound. Eastbound nothing will change on the 1 and 7 as well as Route 12
  6. It is going in mediation in two weeks (article in French) http://ici.radio-canada.ca/regions/ottawa/2016/11/01/009-negociations-contrat-chauffeurs-sto-mediateur-conciliation.shtml
  7. May have been browser issues but they just only recently added the Carling Place timepoints for the 101 and 103. They were not shown still at least two weeks after the fall service changes. The other version did showed the Carling Place timepoints http://www.octranspo.com/routes?lang=en&date=20161004&rte=101 http://www.octranspo.com/routes?lang=en&date=20161003&rte=103
  8. The union has it's own site though in French only. All of the union's previous CBA's with the STO are posted on the site as well http://sut591.ca/
  9. The STO drivers and mechanics union have been without a contract since December 31, 2014 and started various job actions lately, including wearing ugly bright yellow t-shirts and also showing the union name on their destination signs. There was supposed to be negotiations talks between the STO and union this week but the union walked off the negociations since the second offer by the STO is worse than the first. There was mention about scheduling (deja vu from 2008-09 at OC). The union mentionned about lower wages although I find this hard to believe that part. Right now, there is no date for any potential vote on strike action, but right now there isn't any mention of service disruption for the short term. Anyways, this dispute is a gong show already
  10. 1602 at Station Les Galeries de Hull just before 4:30 PM (didn't catch the route number) Not sure of the total buses this year, they were planning 51 buses for the 2016-2017-2018 period so 17/year - 15 articulated buses and 36 standard buses. The only buses not seen so far by any of us are 1603, 1609 and anything over 1616 depending on the exact number for 2016 http://www.sto.ca/index.php?id=87&L=en&tx_ttnews[backPid]=2&tx_ttnews[tt_news]=8296&cHash=a717576e0703458fd70d5d369a521d2b Edit: 1609 should be an articulated bus and 1616 is the highest one for this year. Next year it will be 12 standard buses and 6 artics and in 2018 it will be 17 standard buses.
  11. So i far I have seen in service 1601, 1605, 1606 (today on route 100) and 1607 for articulated hybrid buses and 1610 to 1616 (1615 today on route 35, 1614 today on route 41) for the 40-foot hybrid for the 16xx. Now that my work is back downtown since Thursday, I will be able to spot more of the newer buses
  12. 1616 was on route 33 northbound - at around 8 AM this morning
  13. STO User Guide's 2016-17 is now online. They were a bit slow to post the full guide as they were saying it would be posted by the first week of August. So the three local routes in Aylmer have been reorganized, two of them basically doing a figure-8 loop while another local route with run near the Galeries Aylmer Route 57 is removed with route 67 serving the Pointe-Gatineau area all day but will end in Ottawa Several Gatineau sector routes will have half-hour service during midday on weekdays Not shown on the changes, the Census Route 10 will not be extended beyond August 26 unlike in 2011 which ended in October.
  14. Yet another red light bandit causing a crash at a Rapibus intersection
  15. Normally it should like all other articulated buses, although with the higher number of articulated buses available, we can see them on many of the other routes on random trips.
