    STM 22-XXX Retirement Watch

    Saturday June 9th 22-235 on the 93 22-362 on the Als Shuttle
  4. 1801 Vanhool A330K was spotted in service yesterday, acting as a "doubleur" on route 11
  5. RTC has announced the fares hikes for 2018 ... - The borderline stupid due to price difference off-peak 65+ unlimited pass is abolished, instead it's replaced with a 10 tickets valid off-peak (but NOT on Sat - Sun) offer for 20$ - Modest fare hike for 2018, less then inflation for most fares , one again, except the 65+ that goes up nearly 3$ to 56.15$, there should be one last year of this kind as they will catch up to student fares (what RTC wants) next year
  6. Finallly, RTC will do some more change to it's network for 2018. The Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures city will see major changes to it's bus network, which RTC inherited from Autocars Québec when they taken control about 8 years ago. Here is what is currently proposed. - Bus 92 would mainly focus on the downtown St-Augustin part, with faster and more direct service, bus route is significantly shorter in the Lac St-Augustin area with bus using Hétrière street instead of doing the tour. The biggest change would be in Ste-Foy, bus would proceed directly up A-540 to Laurier blvd, then bus is extended to end at Garneau CÉGEP at all time via Laurier, the Laval university campus, Quatre-Bourgois and Ste-Foy read. Service every 60 minutes or better 7 days a week (instead of all-time except peak travel currently). - NEW express 392 would do the bus 92 routing in St-Augustin downtown, then proceed directly to A-40, A-540, then following the 92 route in Ste-Foy, rush hour only in the peak travel direction only. - Bus 94 is intriguing, bus will now start at the CNDF campus, shorter route in Lac St-Augustin (where some riders will have to walk a lot more to get to their bus stop), then the bus will travel in Cap-Rouge serving areas already served by a bus route (14 / 15). Good news is that bus will finally allow access from Cap-Rouge riders to their commercial area next to A-40, bus would then use A-40,A-540 and follow the 92 routing in Ste-Foy. Service every 60 minutes or better 7 days a week (instead of peak travel currently). - Express 294 & 295 would be deleted under current proposal, forcing parlement hill bound customers to make a transfer on Laurier Blvd. to / from a 11-800-801 bus. - Route 95 would also be deleted, mostly replaced by the 92/94 changes On side notes - The 2 trippers in the isolated north part of St-Augustin are removed, replaced by taxibus service avaliable at all departures (huge improvement) - Chemin du Lac will go from 5 bus (92-94-95-295-992) to zero bus, this also somewhat isolated area will also be served by taxibus avaliable at all departures
  7. Finally, time that i joined the band wagon in my website updates (Youtube / Flickr). Decided that i will post more on flickr so here is a set from my recent visit into OC Transpo Territory during YUL Bus Charters week-end (STO and Transcollines will follow later) https://flic.kr/s/aHskAfRT2m
