The 419 has been dominated by hybrids lately. 5 consecutive buses were hybrids around 10:30. 22-XXXs have become quite uncommon on that route.

Yeah, SL must have lost more of the regular buses. My regular morning bus (203-64) hasn't had a 2002 in 2 weeks now, while it was getting them 3-4 times a week back in September. Luckily for me, they've been showing up on the Lasalle buses running a few minutes later.

AN 24-217 was on the 24-W near McGill around 9:10 yesterday.

I took FR 32-032 on the 90-E around 7:35 this morning. I saw on iBus that this run had a SD 29-0XX yesterday morning.

SD 23-211 was laying over at Atwater as the 90 around 18:30.

Today:

- I took 37-074 on the 105 this morning. Its rear fleet number has the old font like 37-060, and a new oversized priority shield.

- 24-303 was on the 105 this evening (105-17).

- Anjou's 26-036 was on the 420 on Sherbrooke/Cavendish at around 17:45.

Stinson's 37-096 was on the 411 on LaSalle run 411-04 around 15:30. Most likely a renfort.

30-010 was on the 105 during PM rush.

37-075 was on a Stinson extra of the 420 (either 420-08 or 420-09).

24-250 was En Transit at Victoria / 1er Avenue around 18:20. Strangely, it has the new red Frontenac bumper. Even if it was transferred to Frontenac, there are no Frontenac routes in that area and to my knowledge, no Frontenac extras at that time.

28-705 was on the 191.

A hybrid entered Dorval Circle as the 485 with passengers from A520 for some reason around 19:00.

I noticed that too when i saw it on the 90 around 7:40. It was doing 90-04 (out until the 17:16 westbound departure from Atwater), so you probably saw it heading back to the garage. Similarly, 24-252 had FR stickers (it might still) despite always being a LaSalle bus. It was probably there temporarily and they were applied.

As for the hybrid arriving from A-520, it might have detoured via A-15 and A-520 to get around the Turcot closures. I've taken buses on that detour before.

Ah I see. That doesn't seem very smart though since the closure of the A720W to A20W ramp caused a lot of traffic to be redirected to A15N.

I forgot to mention this before but I was on 29-138 on the 425 home and police shut down Chemin Ste-Marie at Montrose (next to the Ultramar) for whatever reason (there were at least 5 cop cars there). We had no choice but to go straight and to the A40E service road. The driver, who was quite new and was his first time driving the 425, had no idea where to go so he called the central control center for detour instructions. However, they were completely useless and I decided to step in and guide him. We took the A40E service road and looped back to A40W via St-Charles. Very nice guy and was very thankful.

26-059 was on the 102 today.

On checking the real-time data, I saw that there were 12 buses doing 110 school runs at 15:40. That's a massive amount considering what an infrequent route it is the rest of the time.

Also, it seems like there will be another camera violation at SD tonight: 24-303 is on 66-02, which should be out until the 66 northbound at 12:36 a.m.

Many years ago, I guided a driver on 216W who mistakenly took Pitfield Blvd at the A13-A40 junction.

This morning, there were at least 4 2nd gens on the 105 excluding the LaSalle extras. I have never seen so many older buses on that route since they brought in the 37 series hybrid.

----------

Today:

- 24-299, LaSalle buses 26-008 and 26-019, and Mont-Royal's 26-071 were on 105 at around 8:00, all doing Stinson runs. I managed to take 26-071(105-24) which I was very eager to take.

Metro: I caught 79-559 this morning in the green line. It still has the previous terminus arrival announcement.

Felix's app (as of typing): LaSalle buses 24-243 and 24-291 are on the 18, Mont-Royal's 25-231 is on the 186 and Frontenac's 26-061 is on the 161. St-Denis seems to be getting many loans.

Yesterday:

- St-Laurent's 28-077 was on the 78 in the morning.

- 24-297 was on the 105 at PM rush hour.

- I caught 29-802 on the 197 at around 19:55. Its fabric seats are gray rather than the firework themed blue like the other buses.

- LaSalle's 24-291 was En Transit heading west on Rosemont/Lacordaire at around 20:00.

Today:

- 28-077 was parked at Lionel-Groulx this evening at around 17:00.

Tracker sights(21:09): LaSalle buses 26-017 on the 144 and 26-019 on the 187, Anjou's 26-036 on the 31(has been at LaSalle shortly before) and St-Laurent 28s all over Anjou: 28-079 on the 44, 28-080 on the 186, 28-095 on the 48 and 28-123 on the 86. It looks like buses go to various CTs on loan while they leave their native garage.
