St-Laurent's 28-064 was on the 211 at Dorval Terminus at 23:37. So at least 28-064 to 067 have been sent to LaSalle.

28-064 was an Anjou bus before.

--

Mont Royal's 30-057 was on the 93 today.

23-238 was on the 31. Not very often you see a 23-2xx on this route.

St. Laurent's 31-034 was on the 53.

38-056 is on the 205. I'd love to go out and see it since the 205 is my home route but I'm busy all day 😓

Somebody who lives in the west island with a nice camera should head out to Fairview and get some nice shots!

28-064 was at LaSalle until this winter. But what division had that bus before? Didn't Anjou get 28s 053-083 when they were new?

Just realized something. If you zoom into the photo, you can notice that STM has gone back to the blue leather seats! I missed these seats so much because of their padding.

I'm not a big fan of it. It's just too much blue. If SL got 056 and 057, how many will go to FR?

Pretty weird move considering that in 2020 the 40-XXX will have plastics seats.

I agree @FelixINX. It probably would look better if they'd wrapped the region around that window in black to match the rest of the bus.

Maybe the wheelchair cushions are blue leather, but the seats are probably as below (photos of 31-208 from Facebook):

Also @malikcollins, there's no need to post the same picture in both threads. I'm sure we'd all see it in the 38-XXX sightings thread.

053, 054, 056, 061 and 064 moved to Lasalle from Anjou in around 2009. I have a photo of 28-061 on the 90 in 2009 as well as some of 28-053 and 28-056 on the 105 (Lasalle route at the time)  from 2010. 066-083 were at SL for quite a while (at least since 2010), but 066 and 067 moved to LS in 2017 then back to SL in 2018, while 063 and 065 were transferred to SL from AN at the beginning of 2018.

Yesterday:

MR 30-057 was on the 144 in the morning.

Today:

I took 28-056 on the 90 during AM rush. I think Lasalle has 053, 054, 056, 061, 063-068 now. I've seen pretty much all of them, but haven't bothered posting every time.

AN 28-019 was on the 144 during AM rush.

There were at least 3 Azurs on the green line during AM rush. Since we're supposed to be receiving 17 extra Azurs to serve the green line, will some MR-73's be retiring in the near future?

I haven't seen St-Laurent's early 31's (31-031 to 054) in a while so I decided to investigate where they might've ended up on iBus. Here's what I found:

7/1/18 

  • 31-034, 039 and 040 were all on the 55 (Legendre). 31-049 was previously spotted on the 41. 
  • 31-035 was on the 164 so that's still at St-Laurent.
  • 31-051 on the 125. I also previously saw 31-052 on the 777.

7/2/18

  • 31-041, 042 and 044 on Anjou routes (33, 44 and 141 respectively). 31-045 has also been seen on the 141 previously.
  • 31-048 on the 166 (St-Denis).

Really? Got pics please?? I found no evidence that these buses were chartered out or given away to do on open work using RTL drivers.

No RTLs on the Chateauguay Autoparc route tonight. Looks like exo charted others. This afternoon I saw:

Autocar Preference 6761, 6781, 6782, 6783, and 9297

Dufresne 341 and 3041 (Royal)

Thanks @Gerbilfor clarifying on the 28s. I am aware that the 27-5xx that LaSalle have were transfered from another division a long time ago (CT St-Laurent IIRC). They also exchanged some with Anjou.

----------

Yesterday:

- St-Denis's 29-027 was on the 105 during the morning rush. I only saw it once: I assume it did a single eastbound departure before doing another route.

- 28-063 was on the 420 in the morning.

Today:

- 28-066 was on the 104 this morning.

- LaSalle's 24-204 was on the 146 this afternoon.

There have been a lot of cancellations at Lasalle lately. They must be short on buses or staff. I'm leaning toward staff because a lot of runs that were already out disappeared for several hours. Also if the shortage were buses, they'd probably be canceling short trippers rather than runs out for longer periods of time.

Here are a few examples on the 90 today:

  • 90-12 disappeared around 15:00 (originally 28-065, supposed to be out until ~18:30)
  • 90-18 disappeared around 15:25 (originally 31-073, supposed to be out until ~18:00)
  • 90-34 disappeared around 19:30 (originally 30-036, supposed to be out until ~22:30)
  • 63-05 was never dispatched (normally out 16:30-18:30)

There was a similar number of cancellations yesterday too.

I took 31-216 on the 90 around 17:40 doing a Stinson renfort replacing 90-12 (run 770-129).

SL 31-092 was on the 144 around 18:40.

St-Denis (?) 23-234 was on the last eastbound 425 (got on it).

Legendre's 24-273 was on the 405 midday.

Stinson's 37-021 was on the 211W at Beaconsfield / St-Charles at 23:37! (scheduled 23:30). It wasn't tracking on Transit so it was probably a renfort due to the staff shortages like Gerbil mentioned.
