  1. Since LS has next to no 24 series left, I've been taking the 105 lately. And SN has been treating me well! Tuesday: I took 24-303 on the 105-E around 16:30. I took 24-228 on the 105-W around 20:30. Wednesday: I took 24-302 on the 105-E around 11:40. Thursday: I took 24-222 on the 105-W around 18:50. Today: I took 22-282 on the 162-E around 11:45.
  2. Wednesday: I took 24-254 on the 90-W at 20:32. Thursday: I took 24-241 on the 105-E at 18:29. 24-297 was on the 105-W at Sherbrooke/Girouard around 18:40. Friday: I took 24-221 on the 105-E at 12:51. Yesterday: 24-288 was on the 211-W with passengers at St. Jacques/Cavendish. Pretty long detour!
  3. 37-055 and 40-109 were both broken down at St. Jacques/Cavendish this morning. 37-055 was in front of the Tim Hortons at the 90/104-W stop. 40-109 was blocking the left turn lane from St. Jacques EB to Cavendish NB.
  4. I went for a ride on STL 0006 on the 903 today. Also saw 0001 in service (didn't note the route).
  5. 24-288 was on the 405 today, not tracking.
  6. I took 40-015 today and can confirm that the roof hatch is the same as 40-085 (and there's only one).
  7. I took 40-085 on the 90-E this afternoon. It already has a black tag on the curb side next to the chevrons. 😕 Also, it has only one roof vent/emergency exit (in the back). The vent is manual like on the 29-114 and below. Has it been like this for all the 40-series? I'll definitely pay more attention next time I ride one.
  8. 22-284 I'm guessing? 24-284 has been inactive since October. - I took 24-257 on the 123-S around 17:15 yesterday.
  9. I took 24-292 on the 90-E at 11:18 yesterday. I took 24-258 on the 90-W at 19:52 today (63-07). First time I've seen 24-series on either of these departures. 63-07 had a 24-series once before (that I've seen) but it got changed off before 19:52.
  10. I took 24-293 on the 90-W at 20:12 (63-06) The 90 has typically been dull in the evenings, but 63-06 has been getting good buses on occasion lately. It's the latest run that doesn't require a camera (21:29 WB). It starts at 6:15 a.m! 24-257 was on the 37 at Vendome around 20:30.
  11. 24-241 was on the 105 yesterday, not tracking.
  12. 40-098 entered service today and I spotted it on the 90 around 12:50. 40-090 was also tracking on the 110 this morning.
  13. I had the reverse today: rode LS 32-019 on the 144. The fare box wasn't working. also took 25-206 on the 90-W at 20:12.
  14. I've done pretty well with the 90 lately: I took 24-258 on the 90-W at 17:47 on Monday. Still has TopoDyn. I took 24-288 on the 90-E at 14:18 yesterday. I took 24-256 on the 90-E at 13:17 today.
  15. I get the impression that some people have forgotten that transit isn't free. Probably a third of passengers on the 144 this week have been walking right past the fare box without paying, or even acknowledging that they should be paying... I've also seen a lot of people trying to get on through the back or get out by the front. It's quite the mess. 29-052's fare box was fixed when I took it yesterday (Tuesday). 29-047 was the other 144, which still didn't have the barrier. Today, the 144 had 25-213 and 25-217 and I rode them both!
  16. My first front door boarding experience was on 29-052 (144) this morning. The fare box was broken 🤦‍♂️ I'm going to miss sitting in the front seats. 27-523 was on the 90 this evening, not tracking.
  17. The other side is yellow and says 'embarquement par l'avant'. - I took 24-282 on the 90-E on Saturday afternoon. I caught 24-292 on that 90-37 tripper tonight at 21:02. The driver never signed into the iBus so it wasn't tracking. I'm going to have to pay more attention to this run!
  18. Spotted 40-901 leaving MCI around 14:30.
  19. I took 24-295 on the 105 this afternoon. It has the plexiglass.
  20. Caught 24-257 on the 90-W at 21:02. It has the new mirror. Pretty lucky since I've never seen 90-37 have a 24 series before, although it often doesn't track. Also, it's quite odd to have a tripper this late.
  21. I took 29-109 on the 144-W around 18:00. It has the barrier.
  22. Had a bit of spare time today, so I did a round trip on the 48/49 with 22-413 and 24-239, respectively. Both of them ride really well, and I like both the routes too. It's a shame I never have a reason to head out there! Now I've been on every active 22/23/24 series. Still missed a lot of AN units.
  23. This info has been available for a little while, but I'll mention it here for posterity: Highlights: Front door boarding will resume on CT Frontenac and St. Denis routes as of July 20th. Barriers are currently being installed. The new card readers will be put into service by September. We will soon be able to see the number of people on each bus. The number of passengers is already visible in the API of the STM website. It seems accurate (@Frozen Yogurt and I tested it while I was on a bus).
  24. I took 29-040 on the 144 both yesterday and today. Yesterday it had no plexiglass barrier, today it did.
