Spotted 9132 this AM on the 767 -> École secondaire de l’Île. She’s getting really rusty!

I had the driver sign the bus up to “En ville, sans ma voiture!” (In town, without my car!) for pictures.

What routes are they primarily on nowadays or is it possible to see them anywhere in Gatineau/Hull?

They seem to go on any, but mainly peak periods with some evening trips after the PM peak. Most classics are back in the garage by 7pm usually

You realize that if you are going on the charter with SMS on June 5th you will have a chance to ride a Classic. He will substitute it if they can't get 7901 back on the road.

I'm going two days before that charter but thank you for that. I'm thinking of perhaps going to get some STO photos on the Tuesday. You forget that I have already tendered my registration for the convention and am in contact with the organizers.

The STO is very big on interlining, meaning that a "voiture" (run) is not assigned to only one route, so a bus may start a run on the 68 from the Gatineau Garage, end up at Cégep Gabrielle-Roy, become a 37 Ottawa and then end up as a 55 Allumettières (in Aylmer). This means the Classics may be anywhere at anytime. It really depends on luck and the number of LFSs that are broken
