  1. 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
  2. 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).
  3. 20723 is currently a spare bus at Terminus Longueuil
  4. 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.
  5. No objections here. Start it when you see fit (I do not follow STM movements).
  6. 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
  7. Accessibility violation 20932 on 28, sad! Some garage movements from tonight: 21010 and 21205 gash to galo 21707, 21839, 21851 galo to gash
  8. A few garage movements from tonight: GASH to GALO: 20808, 20811, 21108, 21119
  9. 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?
  12. ST Laval 1816 wrapped for Doordash, saw it on Le Corbusier central reserved lane in am rush on unknown route, and midday on the 63 One of the oldest buses and apparently brought back from the dead relatively recently: ST Laval 0105 on 65 am rush and 42 midday Lastly, one of the oldest buses in the Greater Montreal Area, ST Laval 0006 was seen deadheading near Montmorency Terminus midday as well.
  13. 40-901 road testing at Terminus Henri-Bourassa at 12 noon!
  14. Effective Monday 22 June 2020, summer booking begins at RTL. If you consider that the usual offer of service during the summer is 90% of full levels, we are going down to 68.5%. So in a sense, there will be more service but not much more. The TCV extras to back up the 45 and 90 remain the 5, 42, 44, 47, and 60. A communiqué went out last Friday (as usual in French only) describing the service changes coming up. https://rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/fr-CA/actualites/communiques/2020/nouvelle-offre-de-service-au-rtl-des-le-22-juin/ Probably the most salient news in all of this will be the return of s
  15. At worst, I'd imagine that the STM would take delivery of the completed order next year. There are plenty of examples of a series with the following year's VIN.
