  1. Technically, no. But the name of this thread is antiquated anyway as the "CIT" systems were folded into different exo sectors. I don't think SJSR, STC, STSV and MRC de Joliette are big enough to warrant their own threads, and their operations are similar enough (third party contractors, which usually operate exo sectors too) that they fit pretty well with the other content of this thread. Perhaps it should be renamed? - Actually on the topic of STC, I did a trip out there a few weeks ago. They finally have minibuses operating on their local routes: 3614 was on the orange line. It is in McGill University Health Centre livery, and I was told this is temporary until the minibuses they ordered are delivered. Last time I went in April, they were using vans. La Québecoise 1254 in exo livery was at the Concordia Loyola campus on a charter yesterday.
  2. Thanks for the update! It matches about what I have observed. I had 6351 listed on the wiki because of @gmnewlook's photo I found from 2020: https://www.flickr.com/photos/48803885@N00/50522303897/in/album-72157669295823255/ However it isn't in the full livery like the others, and 6460 (also in his album) is at exo TM now. I spotted the 35 when I was in St. Jérôme last year but I am unsure of the number or origin of that unit. I think I can see M9 on it (through the driver's window). For Chartrand, 8065 is definitely missing. I have seen it several times on the 125. What I'm uncertain about is whether it was renumbered from unit "125" or is another bus. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Autocar_Chartrand_8065-a.jpg
  3. I've been trying to update the MRC de Joliette section of the wiki. I think I have all the coaches Keolis is using currently in MRC de Joliette livery. Does anyone know what happened to 29374 and the 295XX coaches shown here? Are they still running somewhere? I did a few visits to Joliette on the 50 in the past few months and got Chartrand 8058 and 8061, as well as Keolis Académie 7705, but I haven't seen any 295XX. For the 125, Chartrand had a coach numbered "125" that they used on the route, but it seems to have vanished to make way for 8064 and 8065. Any info on those (model year, VIN) is also appreciated.
  4. An old looking Van Hool T2145 from Florida made its way to downtown Montreal yesterday afternoon. The fleet number on the curb side at the front was 7702.
  5. 28-702 was getting towed at Montréal-Ouest this morning.
  6. I was lucky enough to catch exo VR 307405 (ex-Guelph Transit 187) on the 200 this morning without planning to. They very rarely send these buses out. It's amazing how far ahead Guelph Transit was for the time. The bus basically meets the criteria of a current STM bus: it has air conditioning, two wheelchair spaces, a front ramp, and vinyl seats.
  7. Went over to Radisson this afternoon to spot the La Québécoise buses on exo Assomption. 2898 (2008 J4500 white, see @citfan2020's post) on the 100. 1182 laying over (2011 H3-45 in Vacances Dragon livery). 1688 (2016 J4500 all white) on the 200. Also, Chartrand 8059 (newer H3-45) was on MRC de Joliette 50, covering for Keolis.
  8. Someone posted a photo of it operating on the 804 in a Facebook group I'm a member of. So it should be in service.
  9. They had 2898 running today. 2008 J4500, seems to be ex-Swiftrans. Didn't see the route, but based on the timing and the fact that it didn't track, it may have been the 500 to Marieville.
  10. Seems like I took the set led by 701 on its last ever trip (train 80 yesterday morning). It went out of service afterwards and got replaced with a 3-car multilevel set led by 3017 for PM rush. The other 3 consists (705, 707, 708 as cab cars) were all at Lucien L'Allier this morning, and I took the one with 708.
  11. I must have been there around the same time as you. I saw 343 pulling in around 17:25. Also, 2101 (2001 H3-45) was on CRC 400. It did the 17:20 departure.
  12. There are several coaches missing too. 1022 gone since February, 1150 gone since May and 1248 gone since November 2021. Meanwhile there's only been one new bus, 2937, which appears to be a transfer from Groupe Swiftrans. It first tracked in April 2022. Their J4500's sound horrendous compared to the other ones around at TCV, so I wouldn't be surprised if they're having lots of mechanical issues. (photo from last month)
  13. Cleaning up a few more parts of the Québec section: I notice that someone created individual pages for Transdev Québec 8135, 8136 and 8140, all MCI E4500's. Based on what I've been able to track down with their VIN's and internal configuration/markings when I have ridden these vehicles, all of Transdev Québec's E4500's were transferred from Compass Transportation (a California-based Transdev division) in 2021. They are split into two groups: 8136-8137, both 2008 models with adjacent VIN's. 8132, 8135, 8139, 8140, 8142 are all 2009 models with adjacent VIN's. I propose the following renamings and deletions: Transdev Québec 8136 to Transdev Québec 8136-8137 Transdev Québec 8135 to Transdev Québec 8132, 8135, 8139-8140, 8142 Delete Transdev Québec 8140 I can deal with all the edits related to their background once the pages have been renamed.
  14. Not exo sightings, but they relate to exo operators, so i'll post them here: Limocar resumed their local line along R112 last month. I saw it yesterday morning being operated by 512521, a Ford minibus. Based on this photo from Transdev's website, it was originally at Transport Collectif MRC de l'Érable. Now it's white with a limocar logo on the side. Spotted 9210, a H3-45 in plain Keolis livery, on A40 west of Montréal yesterday evening. Perhaps it was the KLM shuttle from YUL to Ottawa? Does anyone know the origins of this bus? There are also 9200 (ex-Skyport) and 9205 (???) operating at MRC de Joliette, from photos I've seen. Do 9201 to 9204 and 9206 to 9209 exist?
