  1. The Skyport Concordia shuttles are running again after being suspended in March 2020. I saw 112, 118 and 119 today.
  2. I took 26-028 on the 90 today. It has several vinyl seats and a vinyl cushion.
  3. I took 25-220 on the 144 both yesterday and today. At this rate, any 25-series ride on that route might be my last.
  4. I tried out the Montreal-Ottawa service today, and I must say I was impressed. Unlike Via Rail (which is seating people next to each other now) and Megabus (which has a $20 surcharge for a "socially distant seat"), Orléans Express is still putting one person per two seater. For my departure (7am MTL-OTT), they sent two buses: 6958 went took all the passengers going to the Ottawa Via Rail station, while 7062 did the other stops. This felt much more like a premium service than Greyhound or Megabus. I took 7062, which seems to be a nearly brand new 2020 H3-45 equipped with leather seats and tables. They distributed a form we could choose to sign if we wanted to give our support to them for their bid to permanently operate the route.
  5. The VIN's on the tracker might not be accurate. I went to Chambly today and waited for a bus listed as 1N9MNAC6XCC084081, but a Midi numbered 1682 showed up (probably ex Transbus 353 ). The AC was blasting hot air into the bus and it must have been 40 degrees inside. Up there as one of the least pleasant bus rides I've ever experienced. I also got to ride 1522, which was a 2015 Vicinity. Probably this one here: https://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Transit_Cape_Breton_7085 It wasn't tracking.
  6. Spotted the two Vizzy wrapped buses at Atwater around 18:35.
  7. I don't think any are assigned there, but they have shown up there on loan in the past (hence why a bunch have the FR checkered bumper). Also, technically SN already had all the 33-8xx and LE all the 32-8xx if that counts - I took 28-708 on the 90 this morning and it sounded horrendous. High pitched noises when accelerating/decelerating and tons of rattling on the roof. I filmed a clip from my ride. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GasZjF6ANdr770cO1BwdoNWyo7Ny3CPV/view
  8. I took 41-014 on the 51 yesterday morning. As expected, I didn't notice any interior differences compared to 40-062+.
  9. I suggest we wait until @MTL66gets his roster to avoid introducing any errors if the fleet numbers were changed. -- Speaking of exo CRC, here's a photo of 911 on the 401 yesterday. It sounded very rough.
  10. I took 26-086 on the 90 this morning, not tracking. 27-024 was on the 15 in the afternoon. 26-046 was parked dead at Laurier around 18:00.
  11. I saw 41-003 on the 47. There weren't any noticeable differences to the interior (although I didn't get on it).
  12. I took 25-220 on the 144 today. The rear door has a green light like on the 27-5xx to 33-8xx. (apologies for the orientation of the image, it flipped when I uploaded it)
  13. Since most of the La Quebecoise buses were used before for other services and have their VIN on the wiki, I compiled this list of fleet numbers for the ones that have tracked at exo CRC so far (rightmost columns). 2154 is a guess because the VIN is 1 higher than 2153, and La Quebecoise seems to use the numbers from the VIN for the fleet number. Shall I submit them to @FelixINX's form, or should I wait until they're actually spotted? Also, based on photos I've seen since the change, there are quite a few others not tracking (like the midis).
  14. Fixed it. Sorry about that, I updated some of the internals of the website the other day and that broke the home page. The other pages were working fine though if you had a direct link.
  15. I went for a ride on exo Ste. Julie 310105 (2005 D40LF ex-Kingston) today, on route 1. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets replaced with something from Rousillon or CRC next week.
  16. 24-219 is still alive! Spotted it at Sherbrooke/Peel this afternoon.
  17. I took 25-239 on the 104 this afternoon. It was an added school extra, so probably running out of MR.
  18. Thank you! There still seems to be an issue with the filter for route number, where it doesn't show added trips, school or industrial extras (without corresponding trip ID in the static data). I think that should be a priority, as seeing those extras is one of the major advantages of transit tracker.
  19. I love the new look and how easy it is to switch between agencies now! I've noticed a few bugs: The sorting by vehicle number doesn't seem to work (although it does with the other columns): The filter turns up unexpected results (seems to be any route with '5' and '1' in this case) And the table doesn't display properly on mobile:
  20. 27-533 has a rear panel from 27-0xx and below. Couldn't this cause overheating if the engine isn't being ventilated properly?
  21. The 144 was operated entirely by 25-series today: 25-220 and 25-223. I took both.
  22. I took 25-223 on the 144 yesterday evening and 25-230 on the 144 this morning. 25-223 was on the 144 again this evening, doing the 17:59 garage exit.
