    At the time CITHSL put out a statement stating that that particular run the ridership was too low to do the service with a full coach. It was replaced with a modified school bus, that Dufresne used on Charter Service and then replaced by a Ford Minibus. The new contract signed for exo HSL called for a fleet of new vehicules with an average age of no more than 7.5 years if I remember correctly. From what I could determine when the bus left the Terminal, there were no more than 3 people on board. It makes sense to run a smaller bus on a departure with low ridership. The bus does make a stop at Angrignon before heading to Ormstown and the few times I saw the departure from Angrignon, no more than 3 people boarded at the stop. This departure is 1 of the first ones done at the start of Rush Hour around 15h30, most office workers finish between 16:00 and 18:00.

    New Routes starting August 27th. 35 Griffintown Terminal Points will be Place Des Arts Station and Place St-Henri Station. Route will travel from PSH east via Notre-Dame, essentially doubling the 36 but deviate into Griffintown via De La Montagne towards Wellington, then north via McGill to Square Victoria to continue North via Robert-Bourassa and east to PDA via President Kennedy. No changes to existing routes from what I can determine. 81 St-Jean Baptiste Terminal Point will be Roussin Community Centre (Prince-Albert/St-Jean Baptiste) and Ecole Secondaire Jean-Grou (Rodolphe-Forget/Gouin). Route will travel north on St-Jean Baptiste, East on Henri-Bourassa, North via Armand Chaput to serve the Prison and compagnies in area, West to Gare Riviere Des Prairies and continue along Maurice Duplessis and turn north on Rodolph Forget doubling the 48. With the creation of this route modifications to routes 40, 86, and 183 were made. 40 Henri-Bourassa Est ***No offical plans were provided, info via a driver who showed me his carjour for the september list, basing route of check points on carjour.*** 40 gets a complete overhaul of its route. New terminal point for the eastern portion at Gare Pointe-Aux-Trembles. Route will travel east via Sherbrooke to Carrefour de la Pointe, enter the Pointe-Aux-Trembles Industrial Park and then travel North via St-Jean-Baptiste to Henri-Bourassa and continue along its current route. Service eliminated on Henri-Bourassa between Sherbrooke and 40th Avenue and along Metropolitain Service Road between Henri-Bourassa and St-Jean-Baptiste. 86 Pointe-Aux-Trembles 86 retains most of its route. Changes to the Western Terminal point. The western terminal will be at 58e Avenue/Gouin, the old terminal point for route 183. New portion will have route continue North on Riviere-Des-Prairies Boulevard to new terminal eliminating the portion along Maurice Duplessis between RDP and 71st Avenue, replaced by Route 81. 183 Gouin Est ***No offical plans were provided, info via a driver who showed me his carjour for the september list, basing route of check points on carjour.*** 183 gets a partial overhaul and route is drastically shortned. 183 will depart Sherbrooke/Gouin and travel the same route into RDP via Gouin Boulevard, Route will then travel South via St-Jean Baptiste and East via Metropolitain Service Road to Tricentenaire, East on Sherbrooke and North on Robert Chevalier to end at Carrefour de la Pointe (Sherbrooke/Robert Chevalier). Route will then travel North via Robert Chevalier, Jean Grou and 32e Avenue, East on Metropolitain Service Road to Roundabout and then West on Service Road to St-Jean Baptiste to join its current route along Gouin Boulevard to Sherbrooke/Gouin.

    Does anyone know who operates the Ex-Miway ElDorados being used on the Airport Sky Shuttle at Pearson Airport. Can't seem to find any info on Google and there is no wiki page for them, they seem to be new at the Pearson Airport.

    The Retirements I post are to be taken with a grain of salt, 1 garage might decide to retire it, but if sent to another garage, they might fix it up and put it back on the road. 22-396 was on a list of "Retired" buses at Anjou along with 22-284, but looks like it was reactivated with a nother garage. 22-355 was on 136 @15:30 22-244, 257, 408 Parked outside FR

    exo Haut St-Laurent/Dufresne have gotten a couple new buses for the service, a condition on the recent contract they obtained after fighting the original agreement sending the exo HSL services to Transdev. Seen today at Terminus Mansfield 3102, 3103, 3122, 3181. All are new Prevost H3-45s. I believe 3103 is an ex-Prevost demo based off the former fleet number and placement of said fleet number on the bus. Former # is 1692. exo Sud-Ouest 8069(33)1 is the allo exo livery on the 28B

    We must of been there around the same time, spotted both those units as well in around 2pm. 22-357 was on the 10, driver was not too happy about the photos 🙄 22-222 was retired on Friday according to a source, was brought back on the towing after the engine decided to konk out mid route on the 187.

    I believe Frontenac may not be finished training the drivers, they probably will eventually be transferred.
