Université de Montréal's magic carpet running between the metro station and the campus is indefinitely out of order since last Saturday. Bell Horizon has the contract to climb the Chemin de la Rampe. TX-3's are in service to ensure everyone can get to their classes safe and sound.

Since last May, the contract was awarded to La Québécoise, who runs its older LFS. I noted 0859 in blank livery (ex-PLUMobile, former CITSV), 0860 in which livery I cannot recall and 2705 full CITLR livery.

The rebuilt magic carpet's Grand Opening was delayed many times and the 3-vehicle shuttle run is one in many palliative measures. Another one is an infamous 250-meter long Tempo shelter.

I saw 31-831 at Sherbrooke/Elmhurst this morning. Are they potentially testing the possibility of putting artics on the 105 or 51?

I think that Garage LaSalle is being renovated in part to finally accept artics. This would be a welcome move for routes like the 105 and 106.

22-236 appears to have been repaired after the serious accident it had a couple of years ago. (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/stm-bus-crash-injures-17-near-viau-metro-station-1.2866831)

I saw it on the 105 about half an hour ago with a shiny new front end.

It was repaired near the beginning of 2016. I was assigned to Legendre for the Planibuses and saw the bus in the Vapour Bay getting hosed down before it was sent to Legendre Carrosserie for the repair. It was in very bad shape, I will try and find the picture I took with my cellphone.

Are they starting to retire the 21 series?
