    A few afternoon departures on YUL runway 24L
  2. Celebrity Death Thread

    Gord Downie, the Tragically Hip singer, has died.
  3. Société de transport de Montréal

    Since there's no real-time tracker for the STM (something like SammDOT or Transsee), the biggest mistake of this website is not displaying the fleet numbers of the buses in real-time. This is especially important for routes like the 36 where (a) it is never on time and (b) the electric buses almost never show up.
  4. What are you eating right now?

    My god I love hot dog spaghetti! Add some sriracha and it would be even better!

    STM 37-079 on 105 Sherbrooke yesterday. Also included a ride on 36-014 on the 105, a Mont-Royal bus on a Stinson route, and some other footage including 37-058 on the 51, a Stinson bus on a Mont-Royal route.
  6. Today's Sightings

    A few Mont-Royal buses were on Stinson routes recently, and I saw 36-045 and 36-014 on the 105. Also Stinson's 37-058 was on the 51, a Mont-Royal route.
  7. Broken Down Sightings

    Yep! Because being broken down and being immobile is the reason to be towed!

    It kinda makes it look a lot like the RTC Métrobus. But I don't think it's too green.
  9. The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    Maybe the poster was too embarrassed about the video or is worried about privacy issues, things like that. Frankly I don't see any privacy issues there, it's just like transit spotting elsewhere, and when I post pictures of the trains there I'll block out any faces that might show up on my pictures, especially of employees that work on the construction.

  10. Future TTC Bus Orders

    That's because the Orion VII is a bus of terrible quality. The BAE HybriDrive has come a long way since 2001 and essentially the HybriDrive of 2017 is a completely different breed and uses much less fuel and produces much less noise than the VII hybrid. The Nova BAE hybrid of 2013-17 would have been an excellent bus for the TTC, but unfortunately, the low reliability of the VII convinced the TTC that hybrid buses are a bad thing, which of course is not true.
  11. Today's Sightings

    Saw 37-041 En transit outside TCV (later went on 410) and 36-036 En transit at Sherbrooke/University this afternoon.
