Yesterday: 

21-219 NIS on Cote Saint Luc road at the corner of Fielding around 17:10.

Today:

21-245 on the 66 at Guy around 13:50.

21-219 must have been on the 103 if you saw it there.

6/17/17

  • 21-231 doing the 103 WB from Villa Maria at 17h14 (got on it)

6/19/17

  • 21-261 doing the 168 SB at Square Victoria at 17h50
  • 21-206 doing the same but at 18h03

21-206 is the 2nd mural bus and it has a theme relating to the Montreal Metro. I think it looks great!

Yesterday:

21-217 was on the 105 at Montreal Ouest around 9:45.

Today:

21-232 was on the 105 around 9:45 (the run after the one 21-217 was on yesterday).

21-258 was on the 24 in the afternoon and during PM rush. They placed a new set of white fleet numbers on the driver's side where the original ones were.

21-266 was in service around midnight in the 171.  I assume that the driver had a deal with "le gareur" to have a 21-xxx at this time of the day

Some drivers I know hate driving a bus with a jump (ie idiot) seat and for this reason love any third gen or higher.

Other drivers are paranoid about cameras (take this as you will) and would likely prefer an older bus.

Or maybe this operator was a fan who wanted to take out the oldest Equipment as possible!

21-220 was on the 105 around 14:50. The STM app indicated its departure as being operated by a front ramp equipped bus, and I later saw it parked at Vendome around 16:45 then again around 17:45 in the exact same place. It was probably a spare bus.

21-230 was on the 162 around 14:20.

  • 21-252 on the 168 SB around 17h15
  • 21-206 on 85 EB around 18h45

So Frontenac does use the 21s on weekends although not very common.

 

6/26/17

  • 21-212, 21-234 and 21-259 parked outside St. Laurent
  • 21-226 doing the 196 at Cote Vertu around 12h40
  • 21-231 doing the 72 EB near Hymus and De Sources around 12h55
  • 21-215 as unknown passing by Toyota Gabriel around 13h45
  • 21-210, 21-270 and 21-275 all on the Peerless worker's special (139X) at 16h02
  • 21-254 doing the 460 WB at Galeries D'Anjou at 18h02
  • 21-267 doing the 95 WB at same place 18h15
  • 21-269 doing the 44 NB at same place 19h56

Frontenac's 21-254 on the 460 but I was informed this run isn't done by Frontenac. This bus became the 2nd last 460 EB of the day afterwards.

21-219 103 @ Villa Maria 16:45

21-228 103 @ Villa Maria 17:07

I also saw those two today. 21-228 was on the 105 around 9:45 at Montreal Ouest (run 103-03), and 21-219 was passing at the same time on the 162 EB (run 162-14).

21-230 was also on the 105 on the trip directly after 21-228 (run 64-06).

21-213 was on the 767 around 15:00.

Yesterday:

21-260 was on the 92 nearly all day. I saw it multiple times and ended up catching it on its last WB trip around 19:30.

Yesterday: 

21-222 on the 162 at Gare Montreal Ouest around 11:45.

I caught 21-225 on the 105 at around the same time.

21-221 was on the 124 at Vendome around 12:10.

I caught 21-202 on the 202 around 13:00. Someone in a wheelchair got on and the ramp worked flawlessly to my surprise.

  • 21-269 parked as En Transit where the 141 buses lay over around 7h55
  • 21-245 on the 93 WB around 8h10
  • 21-274 on the 92 WB at Jean Talon Metro around 8h15
  • 21-250 on the 161 WB in the morning
  • 21-245 on the 161 EB at 20h51

After being parked at St. Denis since April, 21-274 is back on the road! 21-250 is also back on the road after a while but this bus looks pretty rough on the front.

Yesterday 21-215 was on layover on Gohier for route 72.

This is the first time in a long time that I have been to Cote-Vertu and the south terminal has been completely changed. Unfortunately it has become green space - the parking lot and layover area for STL and CITPI has been removed. STL seems to now layover on Décarie Blvd itself whereas the Express 40 to Vaudreuil seems to now load on Gohier as well. Sad!

Yesterday:

21-225 on the 105 at Montreal Ouest around 8:35, then again at the same place on the 162 around 10:50.

21-232 on the 105 at Montreal Ouest around 10:00.

I caught 21-226 on the 105 around 10:50. The rear door didn't close properly and the driver had to physically force it closed before he could depart from the stop. I don't know if this was an isolated issue or if he had to change the bus because the rear door was only used once for the entire trip.

Today:

21-219, 21-232 and 21-228 were on the 105 in the morning.

Both times I've seen it, 21-232 has sounded horrible. It's particularly loud and reminds me of an older dump truck or similar vehicle.
