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?

I don't think so soon but with 107 new buses coming in this year and theres only 74 of the oldest buses left in the fleet, I don't want to take chances. So I want to fan them incase they start going out the door.

Yesterday, 21-243 and 21-267 were on the 141.

Today, 21-262 was on the 161 this morning. 21-221 was deadheading back to Stinson tonight. 21-224 and 255 on the 33 and 21-244 on the 86, these two last sightings by Mtl66.

37-004 made it out on what I presume was the 105 this morning.

Edit: I also saw 37-001 and 37-011 on the 105 during PM rush.

The standby bus at Vendome is almost always one of those 747 buses. I guess there's the advantage that it can fill in on the 747 or on a regular route.

Should we start a retirement watch thread for the 21-XXX? 

-

21-220 and 21-226 were on the 105 yesterday.

I caught 24-205 on the 104 which was a "camera violation." The run it was on stays out until after 1 am so it only ever gets 2005 and up model years (equipped with cameras).

In my opinion, I'd say not yet. Maybe when the first one retires but I got a bad feeling STM will start getting rid of them soon because now they're being moved all over around the city! They did that with the Classics before they went...

Yesterday, I saw a  brand new VIVA articulated bus on the 40 west in Trois Rivieres! uFnx2.gif

Today, 21-222 was on the 41 in the middle of the day. 21-240 was on the 49, 21-247 was on the 449, 21-255 was seen around Beaugrand metro and 21-209 was on the 85 in the afternoon.

22-250 was on the 171. It now has the engine hatch with the smaller tail lights as it originally came with. But 22-349 was on the 25 with the 2003+ rear lights hatch.
