STO bus spottings

Recommended Posts

Spotted 4 2019 Nova LFS HEVs today downtown during rush-hour:

1904 on the 95 Buckingham

1907 on the 27 Hautes-Paines

1908 on the 37 Cegep Gabrielle-Roy via St. Joseph

1909 En Transit (I'm the first member to spot this unit leaving only 1903 unspotted)

 

Also, I spotted 0702 which @dudebrains mentioned before about the conversion to diesel. I listened very carefully to it as it was accelerating and it does sound very much alike to the 2007-2014 units. So it may also have the Voith D864.5 Transmission installed.

1219 got into a collision with an SUV on the Rapibus at Monclair last night at 11:45 pm. No information about injuries or even if injuries would have been. The intersection has been partially blocked for about 30 minutes but is now clear.

Oh For crying out loud. That’s the THIRD crash at the SAME intersection since the beginning of the year! Something has to be done!

Is this worst than the driver's causing accidents by illegally turning right on a red?

Probably just about as bad. I go trough there every morning and I will say that the lights aren’t on the opposite side of the Rapibus, making them hard to see.

The reason for so many accidents on Rapid Transit corridor is because it was poorly design.

By having it at ground level you must stop at every intersection(causing delays and possible collisions). True if they had  open tunnel(like Scott street Transitway section )it would of cost more to build but you'd have less collisions and if ever converted to a LRT you wouldn't need to put crossing barriers at every intersection.

I don't know what the budget was for the Rapid Transit was, but it now appears there have issues ever few months.I don't know what the plans are for any extensions to the Rapid Transit Corridor are, but I hope they plan it way better then the present Rapid Transit Corridor?
