  1. 31-181 has now a full wrap for Guardian of Galaxy ride at World Disney world, was on the 15 tonight
  2. The stickers have been modified, it's now reading VOIE RÉSERVÉE at the bottom (Speed limit on the A-25 is indeed 70 km/h when reserved lane is in operation) For the Côte-Vertu dépose minute situation, it is basically the same thing all across the STM network, there is no enforcement, laziness, no willing to change situation. Same things with bus stops, in Montreal that reads FREE PARKING i guess
  3. Route 201 (electric) will see some changes starting May 9. The route will be much shorter removing service in some areas of Saint-Lambert. However, service will now be every 40 minutes instead of every hour. Route is still operating mid-day monday to friday
  4. Guess one 26-xxx had enough of the east end of the island, 26-020 was on the 968 this p.m
  5. That strange day is that it was a bus brokedown fest on the 171 To add to that 31 123 broken down on Côte-Vertu, 31 047 was broke down at Henri-Bourassa / Lajeunesse (171E) and 30-024 was getting hooked on the towing inside Henri-Bourassa terminal
  6. STL 0313 was on the 313 39-141 on the 141
  7. exo Terrebonne-Mascouche 220-205 has a driver side wrap for Poppers Also in the "real estate seems to be a profitable business": exo Assomption 221-202, 221-203, 29268 and 29254 are all driver side wrap ... for the same real estate agent ... and 4 different designs
  8. Guess the last 24-xxx in service in Montreal is now retired. The old Solidaribus is now retired and been replaced by a cutaway https://www.stm.info/fr/presse/nouvelles/2022/la-stm-offre-un-nouveau-minibus-pour-un-service-de-navette-de-la-mission-old-brewery
  9. Société de transport collectif Pierre-de-Saurel (STC) 7721 Prevost X3-45 commuter (likely ex. MTA 1300) approaching Terminus Longueuil. The STC launched it's fixed route operations on April 4th 2022 replacing exo express service between Sorel-Tracy and Longueuil
  10. To have a Flyer, you must have all of the above + a driver trained on that specific model of bus. Maybe the driver this week is in vacation and someone not trained on that bus is replacing him
  11. To make things a bit more clear, here is a (short) timeline of what will happens in the next couple months April 4th 2022 - STC Pierre de Saurel will lauch it's all day express service between Longueuil and Sorel-Tracy those service will be operated by Fleur de Lys. Also two local routes within Sorel will also start to operate at that date. exo will abolish the 705 Express, put more trips on the 700 and some others schedule change, all exo services will still be operated by Transbus July 1st 2022 - Transdev will take over Transbus for the operation of the Sorel - Longueuil corridor (route 700). At that date, Transbus will begin it's new contract with exo on the Varennes / St-Amable corridors
  12. After 6 years of operation as a Metrobus (ok, we just put articulated bus on it and did nothing else to justify it), RTC will improve the 3rd busiest route of the network, Metrobus 807 - Route change will happen between Nérée-Tremblay and de Villers, buses will use Quatre-Bourgeois boulevard instead of Chemin Sainte-Foy to avoid this often congested area. That also improves connections with the eXpress at Laval University. - Some stops will be abolished others relocated - 54 new generation shelters will be installed - 20% more accessible stops - More at stop information display
  13. This is not the reason, many runs on the 485 are short runs that are like 3 to 5 hours long and not super busy so they are perfect fit to slip airport buses on them
  14. Stinson has indeed a lot of artics, but let looks at some facts - About 1 out of every 5 bus is not avaliable for maintenance / cleaning / inspection matters - The 100 Cremazie that used sometimes artics before last year route change now use none. - There is a slight down in service levels due to pandemic stuff Now for the regular parts, remember the Flyer only started running "full time" a month ago so they still have the diesel buses to replace those. Also what's is not available, bus operators, lots of job being paid in overtime.
  15. This bus was seen this summer also roaming around the region on a flat bed towing. Some insider told me that this bus could be used in a movie being shot in the Montreal area.
  16. Well Flexibus service will begin Monday March 6 2002, so here is the rundown for now There will be three zones that will see service for start, more zones are expected to be added in the following years Zone 1 : Val Bélair and Loretteville (Northwest)- Daily 6am to 11pm Zone 2 : Wendake, Saint-Émile, Lac-Saint-Charles Notre-Dame-des-Laurentides (Northeast) : Weekdays 9am to 3pm then 6pm to 11pm, weekends 6am to 11pm Zone 3 : Courville and Montmorencu (Beauport East) - Daily 6am to 11pm Taxi COOP is the operators of the 9 Flexibus vans, you can ride those with any valid RTC fare, vans have OPUS reader but you cannot pay your fare cash when starting a journey on Flexibus. Also tickets bought on the RTC Nomade app are also valid.
  17. Every 40 footers (except the 2016 16xx Nova Hybrids) comes out of des Rocailles garage, so it can be assigned on any routes, since it's a "L"imited use bus, you will likely see it in operation during rush hour.
  18. 2002 are long gone, oldest bus in operation seems to be L0605, 2006 Nova LFS. For the Vanhool, they can be found on many local routes (routes 1 to 99), just avoid express and metrobus, you will not find them there
