Rode 27-523 on the 37, noticed the seating layout looks very different with the fold-up seats being closer to the rear door.

EDIT: Now realised the fold up seats are like that on the ISC's - 29-XXX

Yesterday:

Caught 26-053 on the 81 around 16:30 and 26-074 on the 86 around 14:45. It wasn't on an accessible run, but someone in a wheelchair tried to board 26-074. Of course the driver had no idea how to operate the rear ramp, so we left him behind.

26-080 was on the 141.

Today:

Caught 27-017 on the 144 at 11:00! It was definitely a renfort since it initially tracked with a 9- series trip ID and my departure was its last trip. The driver was extremely fast, only taking 12 min to go from Atwater to Sherbrooke, and that's with the detour onto Sherbrooke from Parc to St Denis.

From a few days ago, it is over for 26-013 at Frontenac. Farebox and equipment are all removed. Also, Mont Royal's 25-208 was also parked outside but it has the new blind spot sticker!

For the first good half of the day, nothing older than 28-036 was showing up on the tracker. I found that very odd. Was there some glitch today?

Because of the very warm weather,the driver's union made pressure to get on service as much as possible climatised buses.

I checked what buses Anjou dispatched last Sunday and less than 5 buses were diesels. Virtually nothing but hybrids on that day and it was very humid too so the dispatching was very intentionally done!

Also forgot to mention but last week I took 26-028 on the 150! Has the triple leather seats as @West Island Transit Fan pointed out. Also, the side Axion side was glitching as "En Transit" was misaligned to the bottom instead of the center.
