  1. Yesterday I was spare at the garage and was asked to send a changeoff for the 39 at Panama, so I brought the driver (mat. 10) 21839.
  2. Yesterday AM rush I drove 21306 on the 6! Yesterday PM rush 21821 was on the 21. Currently, 20801 is spare bus at Metro Longueuil. EDIT: 20801 did an accessibility violation on the 6, the bus that was changed off was 21220, now 21119 is spare bus (as of 7 am).
  3. SCOOP: New route 461 will be created to address LHL tunnel woes, and a 5 platform terminal will be constructed at the SW corner of Sherbrooke St E at du Trianon right next to Métro Radisson. It is time to talk seriously about this project, because the heaviest of work will take place between 2022-2024 according to https://www.transports.gouv.qc.ca/fr/projets-infrastructures/reseau-routier/projets-routiers/CMM/louis-hippolyte-lafontaine/Pages/refection-pont-tunnel.aspx Details to follow...
  4. At St-Hubert division, on weekdays during peak hours (4-730 am and 130-430 pm roughly), there is a dispatcher (agente de transport) who gives out what bus you will drive. Off peak, you call upstairs and a supervisor will give you a bus. Usually, the dispatcher knows the preferences of what vehicle a particular driver likes to operate. This goes back to the time of the Classics and Van Hools so nothing is new about that. Whereas at Longueuil division, you must scan your OPUS (employee) card to be attributed a bus. I can call for a bus within Garage 1 (at St-Hubert) to improve odds that an
  5. Since last week Monday, routes 6, 13, 14, 19, 54, and 59 were transferred from galo to gash. Also, since last week Monday, route 8 - Metro Longueuil - chemin de Chambly - Promenades St Bruno has become a universally accessible line. As far as gash is concerned, it is a matter of time until all of their routes are accessible. Every bus parked in Garage 2 (Satellite) is accessible (series 2015, 2017, 2018, 2020). In Garage 1 (Grande-Allée), apart from the 2010 articulateds, there are the following series: 2013 (accessible), 2011 (unofficially accessible) and a handful of 2007 & 200
  6. Hey everybody! 20709 is one spare bus currently at Metro Longueuil, I brought it myself. Yesterday they let me pick my bus in pm rush so 20801 was an accessibility violation on the 43 and 41 before spending the rest of the night on the 32 (until 2 am).
  7. 20723 is currently a spare bus at Terminus Longueuil
  8. It would not surprise me if the greedy, selfish, and odious sweatshop owners on Chabanel made their employees come in on Boxing Day. Seeing these photos amused me greatly. Not used to seeing the bus exit used as an entrance at SL.
  9. No objections here. Start it when you see fit (I do not follow STM movements).
  10. 20 buses have been sidelined at GASH inside Garage 1 since the summer. I took the trouble to note these down: 20302 (VAD last signed 2 July 2020) 20407 20416 20403 20404 20413 20316 20308 20311 20409 20408 20417 20307 20412 20410 20405 20415 20320 20411 20418
  11. Accessibility violation 20932 on 28, sad! Some garage movements from tonight: 21010 and 21205 gash to galo 21707, 21839, 21851 galo to gash
  12. A few garage movements from tonight: GASH to GALO: 20808, 20811, 21108, 21119
  13. This afternoon Doordash wrap 21844 was on the 4!

    Thanks for the update. Sounds like Olymel has become an important trip generator. Perhaps a nod to SCM listed on 8558's roll sign?

    Did Cornwall program some COVID-19 P/R messages on their destination signs?
