What time did I see 24-286? 1:35 pm approx...

Today: 12-067 was doing the 144 EB departure at Cabot Square around 7:30. Fine. About 3 hrs later I see the same bus being towed east on Sherbrooke in front of McGill University, probably going to Mont-Royal! A bit shocking too.

Come to think of it, I think I saw it twice. Where were you when you saw it?

12-041 did the last 106 of the night tonight.

Some guy from the MdeM fourms saw 26-042 on the 48 today! Can anyone confirm the arrival of more 26's recently?

Pyerre confirmed it to me (When i ran into him coincidently tonight). He also saw 26-042 and boarded it, You guys will be in for a shock since there's somthing different about them when it comes to certain seats, but i'll let u figure it out urselves :) or let him tell u. So guess who got them!?? Anjou!! The buses arrived just in time for when they are really needed, MONDAY!!

Some of the seats are a clear color I think. Well something like that, as I recall reading on the MdeM fourm.

Also, I saw 15-028 on the 24 today with its front number '5' missing.

12-048, 12-049 and 12-051 were doing the 139 today.

16-036 was doing the 49 with SMS's favorite feature: the oval.

15-032 was doing either the 48, 49 or 89. Most likely either of the first two. Surprised to see this one out today as it seems to be a rush reserve.

Recently repainted 14-043 was doing the 69 today! :o This bus doesn't normally do weekend service!

18-078 was doing the 49. Rode it.

And here's the feature sighting hopefully all of you were waiting for!

972 km on it when it was parked there. So new, the STM logos aren't even on yet! :(

As you can see, those are the new benches for the wheelchair area. They look very theater movie style. I don't know..I sat on them and I found them quite uncomfortable. I felt like I was sitting on a stool. These seats don't stay down so to sit, you have to hold it down then you sit. The fabric color is just clear blue. Everything else appears to be the same as the other 26's.

Thanks to the nice driver of the bus who let me take pictures. :)

Is that all! That's all this hype is about :)

The STM was in a rush to put this new bus in service, it's with any logos, as you mentioned.

So does anyone know where 26-041 is, is it in a garage or in service.

And Great Pics :o

Cool Matt thanks for sharing.

OK now for some sightings

14-033 on 11:04 pm departure of 144 Des Pins tonight from Cabot Square, got on... nice to see HF service on this line late at night... and it makes the pssssssht! sound that Dave and Mystic like to mimic.

As for nightbus sightings, 22-366 was on the 369 tonight on northbound CDN at Sherbrooke at 3:05 AM completely SRO... and 26-018 was laying over at Cabot Square as HS. Although it's a SL bus, something tells me that it was going to do LA service.

Awesome pics matt!

Ya, great pics Matt. I can get over the fact that they didn't even put the logos on yet.. :)

The first 106 of the morning at 5h10 was 15-038. This could possibly mean that this bus might have done the 4am departure of the 350 and if so then that would have been a classic on the 350. I have to get out there some time soon and bus fan the 350 at that time, and also the 369 and others. If anyone's interested in joining me let me know.

I find that sighting weird as it did two garage's routes in one day. I saw it too on the 139 earlier.

12-051 was doing the 139.

12-052 was also on the 139.

18-077 was doing the 30.

18-084 was doing the 18.

18-089 was doing the 186.

Legendre's ex-accident victim 22-389 was doing the 97 tonight.

St. Laurent's 13-015 was parked at Lionel-Groulx, it has the tinted rear window.

St. Denis' 18-083 was either doing the 66 or 166 this afternoon

LaSalle's 16-117 which was doing the 90, has LED lights

And last: I got on 16-111 on the 108, later at 8pm doing the 61. This bus is going to be one of my favorites from now on not because of it's body, (which BTW was tagged all over except the windows), but for a window at the back of the bus. The window is the last window on the drivers side, it opens up all the way, which there not supposed to. I sat at that seat and few times had to hold on for dear life near the Atwater Tunnel. :(

Yes sir! 935 for example.

For the record, more high floor buses are now on 24 Sherbrooke because of the service increase that happens when it isn't summertime.

Anjou's 25-204 was one of the good LFS on the 24 today... plenty of garbage LFS of the first generation that sound more like dump trucks than buses... I think to my self for F***'s sake why couldn't we have S50EGR buses than this Cummins crap.
