STM 39-XXX Delivery Watch / Sightings

Recommended Posts

The STM 2019 hybrids have started being delivered! 39-001, 39-002, 39-004 and 39-009 are parked with no plates and no ads but have the yellow temporary transit paper.

Nah it's the list about phase 2 of 12 m bus procurement I posted somewhere else,  they listed 125 buses for 2018 and 125 for 2019. At this point (technically still 2018) I'm thinking that 39-001 thru 025 will be these 25 more buses and delivered now, and this year we may end up with 39-150... That's my thought and nothing is confirmed at this point.

@ReusableNoseTissue I remember someone here mentioning Anjou is next for hybrids.

Someone also said that some will go to Stinson for the 747. If I remember correctly, it was only rumors and I will be surprised if the STM is installing racks for only five years...

If I understood the rumor correctly, it says that 15 of Stinson's 39s would have replace some of the more "used" 747 buses. But since these buses shown in the picture were freshly delivered with the normal STM livery rather than the 747 livery, I too would be suprised to see them running on that line. Also, 39-004 doesn't seem to come with lugguage racks.

Thanks! Is it the only one?

Yes!!!  I wouldn't be surprise if there is 2 or 3 more friday during the day.  They will probably be in service next week.

Nice catch!

I just want to nitpick a little bit on how the old GTFS data should be interpreted:

The run 105-28, as displayed in trips.txt, looks like

However, the _xx behind 105_28 tells you the sequence # of the departure in the particular run (it always start with 2, I guess 1 is for deadheading from the garage); and the number is sorted, I guess, in string rather than in number, so you should rearrange the data to make it  look like:

Then, as you can see, the run does actually 1 55-S, 2.5 roundtrips on 129, 1 roundtrip on the 103 and then spends the rest of its run on the 105. It means that 39-016 will stay on the 105 till the end of its run.
