STM 22-XXX & 23-2XX Retirement Watch/Sightings

Recommended Posts

Saturday:

  • I took 23-205 on the 90-W at 16:39. The farebox is still broken. It has been for at least 3 weeks now. I wonder if they will ever fix it.

Today:

  • I took 22-345 on the 105-E at 7:57. It ended up at Lasalle for PM rush.
  • 23-222 was on the 105E-W near Wilson around 8:10.
  • 23-225 was on the 105 all day. I saw it around 8:10 and again around 17:30. It was on 105-25, a run I've taken this exact bus on twice already.
  • I took 22-387 on the 485-W at 11:03.
  • 22-306 was on the 209 at Dorval around 11:25.
  • I took 23-214 on the 200-W at 12:16.
  • 22-292 was on the 200-E at St. Charles/A-20 around 12:30.
  • 23-207 was laying over at Terminus MacDonald around 12:55.
  • I took 23-206 on the 405-E at 15:50. It arrived from the other direction about 40 minutes late and left on my departure 15 minutes late.
  • 22-394 was on the 405-W on Beaconsfield around 16:00. It was supposed to be the departure after mine.
  • 22-397 was on an unknown route at St. Jean/A-20 around 16:15. It wasn't tracking.
  • 23-205 was laying over on the 491 at Lionel Groulx at 16:50.

The second mural bus is 22-407, with the Alouettes theme. I haven't seen any photos of the finished 22-323 on social media.

Can confirm, I passed by there around 10:15.

Yesterday:

I also saw 22-363 on the 201. It did sound loud and weird. It has made its way to Legendre since I saw it tracking on the 469 this afternoon.

Today:

22-343 was on the 804 shuttle in front of the main McGill entrance (Sherbrooke / McGill College) at 9:53. 23-201 was tracking on it later.

23-228 was on the 30-N at Mont-Royal at 11:35.

23-207 was En Transit at Terminus MacDonald at 12:55.

I just realized we literally have the same sighting at the same time, so we must have been super close! I was on the 405 arriving at the same time (24-276).

23-201, 212, and 214 were all on the 419 this afternoon.

22-397 was doing the last 425-W.

Yeah, I noticed that too! Your bus was behind mine (23-214), I presume?

I doubt we directly crossed paths since I walked away quite quickly after getting off. I was hungry for lunch (pizza from that place in Ste. Anne de Bellevue)!

I took 22-339 on the 90-E at 8:22 today (SL extra 90-13).

Adesso Pizza is pretty good! I was definitely behind your bus but I didn't see it since I started walking east to go to the 419 after getting off.

Today at Fairview around 13:30:

22-274: En Transit.

22-281: 200.

The final mural bus is 22-408, which is unsurprising since it was the only 2002 left at FR. This one will have a marathon theme. I got a front shot this time since the sun wasn't out and they were busy taping the back.

I had the day off so I decided to head over to the west island again (land of 22-XXX).

  • 22-286, 22-309 and 22-369 were at Cote Vertu on the 177, 70 and 64, respectively around 10:45.
  • I took 22-281 on the 215-W at 10:57. It arrived at Cote Vertu as the 468 and left Fairview as the 208.
  • 22-242, 288, 370 and 373 were parked outside SL (among many others mentioned before).
  • 22-365 was being loaded onto an STM tow truck at SL. I doubt it's going to the scrap yard, because I'd imagine it isn't the STM truck that brings them there. Perhaps they're going to fix it or harvest it for parts.
  • 22-306 and 22-396 were on the 201 and 203, respectively around 13:40.
  • I took 22-362 on the 419-W at 13:47. It has fabric seats.
  • 22-292 was on the 200. I saw it multiple times.
  • 22-404 was also on the 419.
  • I took 22-394 on the 405-E at 14:38.
  • 23-206 was on the 211-W in Beaconsfield around 14:45.
  • I took 22-406 on the 90-W at 17:16. This is the third day in a row this run has had an Anjou bus (24-279 and 24-233 on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively).
  • 22-407 is already back in service! It was tracking on the 178 earlier.

22-281 runs exceptionally well and looks fantastic. It was really shiny compared to sister bus 22-286 which it was parked next to at Cote Vertu. I wouldn't be surprised if this is one of the last 22-XXX to survive, since it probably got a new engine after the fire in 2015.

I had a good opportunity to take a photo of 22-394 laying over at Terminus MacDonald, since it was unattended and the sun angle was perfect.

  • 22-215 doing the 141 WB at Jean Talon / Pie-IX at 17h58 (got on it)
  • 22-317 arriving on the 141 WB at St. Michel Metro around 18h10

Stinson's 22-215 makes a comeback to Anjou. Farebox is still broken on it. It was doing the 141 then the 189 according to Gerbil's site. I found it odd that St. Laurent only sent out 1 old bus out this weekend, usually there are 2 or 3 at least.

iBus (via Felix's app): Legendre's 22-380 on the 211 Anjou's 22-406 returns for another stint on the 109,, 23-201 on the 64

  • 22-308, 22-364 and 23-218 parked outside Legendre
  • 23-236 parked outside Stinson
  • 22-215 doing the 33 NB at Langelier Metro at 21h11 (got on it)

The elusive 23-218 has finally resurfaced. It looks like it was sitting somewhere for a long time and theres a big red and white notice affixed to the windshield. It has no farebox or front bumper either so this bus is good as gone. 22-308 and 22-364 are gone too.

Went for another ride in STM's oldest bus in service. This bus runs superb like 22-292! :D

  • 23-229 on the 161 EB this morning

iBus (via Felix's app):  Stinson's 22-215 on the 44, 22-365 on the 409, 23-201 on the 201, 23-225 on the 93

I took 22-337 on the 105-W at 16:53 today.

I hadn't taken that one before.

Of the remaining 22-XXX, I'm still missing rides on 22-332, 22-365, 22-370, 22-412, 22-413 and 22-421.

And the only active 23-2XX I haven't taken is 23-229.

I don't know if it has been posted here... and I apologize if it has... the Shawinigan urban transit contract (RTCS) has been taken over by Fleur de Lys, replacing TUM. As you can see in the pictures, while they wait for delivery of brand new buses in Spring 2020, they are running ex-STM 22-XXX buses.
