  1. STM 21-2XX Retirement Watch

    I remember that the motor didn't sound too great last time I caught it. Also, I think it got some new front end panels a few months ago; it was looking fairly shiny the last time I saw it. - Yesterday: 21-202, 21-212, 21-214, 21-245 and 21-251 were parked on the east side of CT SL. 21-236 was parked in the repair line at CT SL. Today: 21-231 was En Transit parked at Vendome around 17:35. This one, on the other hand, gets dispatched a lot. It seems to appear in most of my posts.

    Unless it gets changed off, it looks like 23-209 is going to be on the 365 tonight operating as an SD extra. I saw it around 21:30 on the 166 (accesibility violation; run 26). MR 30-083 was on the 201. 22-361 was on the 204. It has a tailgate from a 2003-2008 LFS. SN 29-073 was on the 211.

    LE 24-268 was on the 105 in the afternoon. The 105 doesn't have extras from other garages so it was definitely operating out of Stinson. 37-060 was on the 105 in the afternoon (run 24). 22-201 was on the 90 around 14:20.

    So far we've received over 60 out of 107 hybrids and only one 21-2XX may have been retired (21-248; and we aren't completely certain that it won't come back), so this probably bodes well for the 21-2XX series. I can't add much more since I don't have any connections at the STM I could ask. - Yesterday: 21-231 was on the 105 near Montreal Ouest around 7:30. Today: 21-204 was on the 24 near McGill around 8:10.

    The previous batch was up to 37-054, so I assume 37-055 is the first with the new layout. -- The 2008 hybrids seem to be becoming less reliable lately. 28-703 got changed off for 29-109 on the 63 yesterday. 28-701 broke down on the 90 during PM rush today. It was dead at Upper Lachine/Melrose. Speaking of which, 28-708 is still MIA. I wonder if they ever replaced the battery after they reached the end of their life cycle last year. Finally, 30-079 has been wrapped once again. This time for Sketchers. It was on the 51 this morning.
  6. STM 21-2XX Retirement Watch

    Yesterday: 21-231 was on the 105 around 7:20. 21-224 was on the 105 around 8:30. It returned from MR very quickly. 21-234 was on the 24 near Guy around 9:40. 21-253 was on the 178 on Rene Levesque around 17:00. 21-228 was on the 105 around 18:50. Today: 21-230 was on the 105 around 16:10.

    I caught 37-058 on the 420 this afternoon (Stinson extra; run 104E-12). It might have been the first time it was in service. The iBus equipment hadn't been installed yet, and there was a plastic cover over the slot where the stop display screen is supposed to go. The main difference in the seating layout is that the four front-facing single seats have been shifted to the curb side, and the driver's side is now exclusively flip-down seats (wheelchair zone). Here's a poor quality photo demonstrating the layout (the bus was too busy for me to do any better) 30-155 was on the 15 today, so maybe they were sent to Frontenac. I also saw some 30-15X at SL during the summer.
  8. STM 21-2XX Retirement Watch

    Friday: 21-235 was on the 105 during AM rush. I caught 21-228 on a Stinson extra of the 24 around 7:45. 21-231 was on the 105 mid afternoon. Today: 21-213 was on the 24 around 15:05. 21-247 was doing the 104 eastbound near Vendome at 16:00. This must have been a school special since the scheduled run at that time is 104-37, which is out until about 25:00. There was also a second 104 right in front operated by a 3rd generation LFS. It was probably being operated out of SD. 21-224 was on the 51 near Snowdon at 17:25. It was actually operating out of MR on run 112-77.

    I caught AN 22-425 on the 51 today. It was operating on a SD extra.
  10. Today's Sightings

    22-345 was on the 123 around 8:50. 22-255, 22-268 and 22-382 were on the 90. I caught 22-268 and 22-382. I think 22-268 used to be at Stinson, but I'm not completely sure. I know 22-269-271 are Stinson buses.
  11. STM 21-2XX Retirement Watch

    Yesterday: 21-234 was on the 178 on Rene Levesque around 13:45. I caught 21-224 on the 105 around 14:00. 21-225 was on a Stinson extra of the 90 during PM rush. Today: 21-232 did the 15:48 westbound 104 departure from Atwater (Stinson extra).
  12. Today's Sightings

    32-019 is wrapped for Priceless Cities music (Mastercard and Apple). I saw it on the 15 today. Some more exotic 2002s at Lasalle: 22-204 and 22-419 on the 90 today. I took 22-419. I caught 30-149 on the 90 during PM rush. The driver I had (and have had many times before) is probably the best one I could ask for on the 90. She seems to know all the traffic light cycles by heart and is very efficient with the door operation. Despite the bus being overcrowded and the traffic being bad, we made it to my stop on time (a very rare occurrence).
  13. STM 21-2XX Retirement Watch

    Yesterday: 21-267 was on the 92 around 11:45. Today: 21-260 was on the 166 around 11:15. 21-223 was on the 105 around 17:20.
  14. Today's Sightings

    It seems like Lasalle has a bunch more 2002s on loan. 22-215, 22-382 and 22-400 were on the 90 today. I took 22-215. 22-209 was on the 63.
  15. Today's Sightings

    I added the Saturday, Sunday and Holiday schedules. The run numbers are slightly different on Holidays. I know one difference at Lasalle is that route 63 runs, while on Sundays it usually doesn't.
