22-370 was on the 105 this evening. Kind of odd to see one of those on this route on a weekend.

22-247 was tracking on the 100 and 103 on Saturday as well.

I took 22-384 on the 51-E around 15:25. It was LE extra 51-48.

22-328 arrived at Snowdon and discharged passengers as the 103 around 15:45. I quickly looked on iBus after and it was the 103E, I think for St. Luc high school. Strange to call it the 103E if it goes to Snowdon. 

22-284 was tracking on the 103 around 21:15.

22-307 is currently tracking on the 195. It'll be out slightly past 23:00. It's supposed to arrive at Angrignon and return to the garage at 23:11.

Damn! I wonder if it was a minor accident given the damage under the front left light. It was harvested for parts pretty quickly compared to those ones that have been sitting outside SL for months.

Is it possible that they are selectively retiring the first 125 buses (which would correspond to the number of ordered buses in 2018)? Most of 22-201 to 325 are retired or MIA, while the majority of 326 and up are still active. It would also make sense because 326 and up are a different batch (higher VIN and newer Novabus logos).

Yesterday:

  • I took 22-321 on the 150 around 11:20. The farebox and iBus system were broken.

Today:

  • 22-379 was doing a LE extra on the 90-W near Cavendish around 15:25. 
  • I took 22-369 on the 90-W leaving Atwater at 17:16.

Take my word with a grain of salt, but I believe that 22-326+ were delivered in 2003. You can actually see that 22s 201-325 have the old NovaBus logo and 326-425 have the newer oval emblem.

22-373 was on the 119.

The northbound traffic on Rockland is really bad, I was surprised how long the lineup is... anyway this bus has fallen 20+ min behind schedule by the time it arrived at the terminus, instead of doing more service and accumulate more lateness, the STM just cancelled its southbound departure and made it go to CDN metro en transit via Laird/Cote-des-Neiges.

It's strange that on Christmas day the 72 and 196 were running but what's more strange is seeing Frontenac's 22-323 on the 105! uFnx2.gif

Even more : 968 is running even if the train is running too. It's nice to see two options!

Too difficult to crew out, so KISS method applies.
