  1. I got confirmation that Ex-1629 is in fact still in Red Deer. It does not surprise me that the VIN was entered incorrectly by exo, there are many errors (most notably an LFS tracking as a Kia Sedona). It's hard to copy a VIN number from the registration apparently, I have asked a contact to verify the VIN when he can and will provide an update at the point. The number 81601 was listed on the roster that was provided to me in the 1st week of the contract. It was listed as EN LIVRAISON. I was forwarded pictures of the unit when it arrived, still in Calgary Transit livery with 1632 as the fleet number. When the VIN ending in 8052 started tracking, we assumed the 2nd unit had arrived and that 1 out of the 2 was not tracking. Though no one has had a visual confirmation of a Vicinity numbered 81601 to this date.
  2. I believe that is program for the Airport Parking lot Shuttle which is also run by Skyport
  3. La Quebecoise does not have an Ex-Calgary Vicinity. The vicinity is also Ex-Cape Breton
  4. I don't think the 139 will make the stop in the SRB lane. The SRB is in a protected lane at hat point of the SRB and exiting from the SRB lane onto Pie-IX southbound would be hard because of the sidewalk on the southside of Amos on the Southbound side. I suspect the bus will as it is doing now and turn left and integrate Pie-IX southbund directly. I assume they just never changed the name of the stop in the data, as during the construction phase, 139 buses were turning into the SRB stop, as well as regular traffic was using the SRB lane coming from Laval as the southbound lane at Henri-Bourassa was closed. They could also consider the street stop as the SRB stop in name only. But I do believe the name of that check point will eventually change to Pie-IX/Amos once the new timetables come out for January.
  5. With the arrival of the SRB, the 139 will be 40 Footers, as Artics will be for the 439 which will run 7 days a week as of November 7
  6. Yes Keolis is going to be operating the 100 and 200 once again as of November 14th.
  7. Transcobec is starting to get their new 2022 LFS and they have started tracking on the tracker. They will be numbered in the 900s according to a photo that was posted in a chat
  8. Added 92 Photos to Flickr! Photos taken in January and February 2022. First Photos to 2022
  9. The current tender is only for July 2023 to September 2024 to bring it to same expiring date as the Sud-Ouest Contract in order to merge them
  10.

  11. 27-509, 28-701, 28708 RETIRED according to latest STM Roster
  12. Route 35 is now run by Autobus Campeau. I believe it is run through the MRC Montcalm now, as it matches their numbering scheme and the local service in St-Lin is run by them. Chartrand 125 and 8065 have different livery positions and 125 has an ad for recuruting drivers on the windows in the back
  13. Keolis no longer operates the route from St-Lin to St-Jerome so 29374 is gone. The 295XX coaches are all sitting in Repentigny. They have not moved in over 1 year from what I can tell when I take the exit to go to the office. Chartrand has been picking up some departures of the 50 because Keolis is having a staffing issue ATM. This is the roster I submitted for the 2022 Street Side Guide. I was unable to get a full confirmation, as Keolis and Groupe Gaudreault refused to provide me with rosters.
  14. Uploaded 142 Photos to Flickr! Taken between October 1st and December 31st, 2021 Last photos of 2021
  15. What makes you think the driver will lose his job, the union is there to protect him/her. Accidents happen to everyone, you do not know the story of why the driver fell asleep. Could of been a result of a medical issue, maybe the driver is not used to working nights and was forced onto a night shift because that was all that was left to book. There have been far worse accidents that have happened that did not get media attention and those drivers are still employed, so don't assume before the investigation is over.
  16. The bus does not belong to exo, but to Transdev and if the repair to the bus is greater than the value of the bus, why do the repair. Especially that Transdev is losing that contract in Laurentides in 4 months time.
  17. Get the media involved and watch how fast things change.
  18. This is one of the reason I opt for my car now. I can get to my destination 4-5x times faster than relying on transit.
  19. Uploaded 117 Photos to Flickr! Photos from the September 2021 YUL Bus Charters Weekend
  20. Keolis has a staff shortage, reason why they subcontracted it out
  21. Upcoming changes to exo L'Assomption services. Routes 100 L'Assomption and 200 Express Repentigny will be operated using coach buses as on Monday August 22, 2022. The operator will be La Quebecoise. I believe this is the first time we see a change in operators in on on-going contract. Service is also cut to be operated Rush Hour only now, departures outside of Rush and in the evening (Route 200) are no longer appearing in Chrono.
  22. 29255 was the last 200 to be operated by Keolis 29268 was the last 100 to be operated by Keolis
