    Yeah I'm not sure how the STM decides which weekday only routes operate on which holidays. Routes like the 496-E were running at almost their full rush hour frequency this morning. Also, the 419 isn't running today but will be on Monday. - - - I saw an unknown artic being towed on the ramp from A-20W to A-13N. I wonder where it was being towed from and where it was being towed to. Can CT SL perform maintenance on artics?

    AN 30-145 was on the 217 this morning. From Felix's tracker, AN 30-143, 144, 150, and 162 were also on SL runs. I took SN 37-014 on the first 219-W of the afternoon. SN 31-090 was on the 485. Edit: 31-806 has been reactivated on the 165.

    MR buses 25-237, 26-046, and 27-017 were on the 106, 36, and 211 respectively. I took 26-046, which was an accessibility violation and the two seats directly behind the rear door had their bottoms upholstered with the blue material from 24-307 and below. Also on the 106 was FR 31-152, while their 26-044 was on the 113. 25-210 was on the 35. 36-903 on the 36 has a full wrap for Hydro Quebec. It's blue and says something along the lines of "ce bus roule à l'énergie renouvelable" or something like that.

    I took 22-292 on the 419-E (14:32 departure from JAC). Parked outside CT SL: 22-273, 282, 286, 289, 293, 294, 297, 302, 305, 324, 326, 331, 334, 338, 339, 345, 360, 365, 368, 371, 387, 402, 403, 404, and 23-210. I mentioned before that 22-286 had damage on its rear. Here is a photo of it. The damage isn't anything major so I think it's still possible that it will be fixed and returned to service.

    @Gerbil 31-043 is an AN bus. They have 31-041 to 046. Agreed. I highly doubt the 747 ever needs 61 buses (29-149 to 156, 30-001 to 020, 31-001 to 008, 31-211 to 220, 39-001 to 015) at a time. It must be annoying to get a 747 bus on a regular route (less seats, less standing room). - - - MR 27-020 and AN 29-007 were on the 425 this afternoon. AN 27-012 was the last 425-W. LS 24-256 was on the 419. This one was at MR briefly before. Parked outside CT SL tonight: LS 28-012, 29-033, 29-085, 31-084. MR 25-240, 30-049, 30-077. AN 26-080 (inactive since December), 30-120, 30-220. LE 24-274. SN 29-149 (what is this doing here?!).

    23-211 and 23-212 were on the 419. I took 23-212 (7:19 from Fairview). It has large rear interior fleet numbers. 22-396 was on the last 485-E. 23-202 was on the 201-CCW at St-Jean / Holiday around 19:45.

    I haven't seen, in person or on a tracker, SL 28-113, 28-121, 30-231, and 38-057 since 2018. In fact, 38-057 has been MIA since July! Yesterday, I took 28-125 on the 419 leaving Fairview at 9:50. Its front door is very squeaky. Every time I take this departure, the iBus screen prematurely says "Terminus, n'oubliez pas vos effets personnels. Merci d'avoir voyagé avec la STM" while we are still crossing over the Poultry Cottages bridge over A-20. Then, it starts counting the WB stops all over again (Brunswick / Terminus Fairview, Brunswick / St-Jean, Transcanadienne / Berne, etc...). Sometimes the announcer says it, sometimes it just reads it on the iBus screen. Today, I took 30-239 on the 419. The driver made this one of the best rides I've ever had on a 3rd gen. He drove so smoothly that the bus never did that sudden jerk when changing gears. iBus (via Felix's app): AN 27-009 was on the 196 (SL run) yesterday and SN 30-007 was on the 68 today.
