38-040 was on the 162 this afternoon. I guess they already ship a 38-xxx at stinson.

38-001 to 38-050 are going to St. Laurent and the rest (up to 38-100) is going to Frontenac.

Some plates :

  • 38-024 A88443
  • 38-028 A88496*
  • 38-031 A88432
  • 38-041 A88441

*The third interior window on the passenger side is already "decliped". If you press on it to hard, you think you have breaked the window!

Sinse SL has 42 routes and FR only has 25, I think SL might get more hybrids. (for example: 38-001 to 38-075) or something like that

I have no clue about this but has SL more space then FR? Because I think that SL has more routes because there is less frequency (no 10 min). A bus driver from FR garage told me a couple of months ago that they expect 50 buses later this year.

St. Laurent is actually much larger, with space for 255 buses compared to 152 at Frontenac. I found a (somewhat dated) list of the capacities in this thread:

Hybrids have started to dominate the West Island on weekends:

5/26

38-030 and 38-041 were on the 201.

38-006 and 38-015 were on the 202. Got on 38-006.

38-031 was on the 208.

38-012 and 38-016 were on the 217. Got on 38-012.

5/27

38-025 was on the 202.

38-006 was on the 205.

38-014 and 38-030 were on the 206. Got on 38-030.

38-029 was on the 207.

38-020 was on the 215.

38-031 was on the 217.

38-026 parked En Transit at Fairview.

This is kinda sad because most West Island routes now exclusively operate with 2010+ buses on weekends. Before, most 2XX routes usually had at least one 2002 or 2008 on it.

Not sad for me. I welcome air conditioned buses in the summer. This move was decades too late.

Fair enough, although it does suck in spring and fall when it's 10-20° and you can't even open a window.

Yesterday

38-005 was on the 203 and 38-032 was on the 202.

Today

I took 38-028 on the 202, which interlined to the 208. The A/C was a huge plus.

38-001 was on the 205.

38-018 was on the 72.

38-037 was on the 215.

I agree. I think tip-in windows like on the TTC LFS would have been a better choice to discourage people from opening them in the summer but still have air flow in the spring/fall. Some other problems with these windows are that the plastic inner layer comes loose quite easily and also gets dirty. I took 36-035 a few days ago and the windows were smeared with greasy hand prints.

38-042 and 38-045 were on the 200 today. I rode 38-045.
