Today's Sightings

Recommended Posts

St. Laurent's 28-080 was on the 141 today, got on it. This bus used to be horribly slow a few years ago but now it seems to be faster.

Mont Royal's 25-203 did the 29 that left Joliette Metro around 15h00. I saw this bus on the 97 just before it went on the 29.

31-083 was on the Peerless special along with 26-022. 31-083 also has the Frontenac bumper.

Frontenac's 26-050 was on the 192.

Anjou's 23-227, LaSalle's 24-282 and St. Laurent's 31-078 were on the 168 this afternoon.

iBus: 23-226 on the 192 this afternoon, 23-228 and 23-233 (Frontenac?) on the 168, LaSalle's 24-201 on the 180

29-049 was on the 119 this morning, its rear ad reads:

<< Un bus                          >>
<< de moins sur la route >>

(On less bus on the road) :D:D:D

If you like humorous bloopers by the STM, I suggest to look at the front bumper of Anjou's 30-211 if you get the chance.

----------

Today:

- Mont-Royal's 25-206 was on the 113 at PM rush.

- Anjou's 30-116 was on the 495 WB at around 16:20. It has a wrap for the Mini car brand.

- St-Denis's 23-237 was on the 104 this evening.

LaSalle's 28-044 was also on the 141 this afternoon.

23-229 is back at Anjou. Was also on the 141.

27-525 was on the 141 with the Frontenac bumper.

23-233 was on the 24. Has really tiny front fleet numbers.

Anjou's 27-015 was also on the 24.

31-111 was on the 117. I remember someone here wondering what happened to that bus so I noted the sighting down.

St. Laurent's 31-089 was on the 460.

Stinson's 36-020 was also on the 460 while their 37-012 was on the 74.

Anjou's 24-223 was on the 100. This bus ended up on the 48 after according to Felix's app.

iBus: 23-208 on the 140, Anjou's 23-227 on the 136 this evening

Yesterday:

  • SD 29-040 was on the 90-W leaving Atwater at 17:10 (LS run).

Today:

  • SL 31-084 was on the 63-S at Ste. Catherine/Victoria around 9:10.
  • LS 24-255 was on the 144-W near Atwater around 9:20.
  • SN 37-074 was arriving at Atwater on the 15 around 9:20.
  • I took LS 28-021 on the 144-E leaving Atwater at 17:26. We left 4 minutes early (scheduled 17:30). The "depart imminent" announcement occurred when we were already north of Sherbrooke.
  • I took MR 25-243 on the 90-W leaving Atwater at 22:45. The transmission whines quite loudly.
  • FR 32-021 was on the 90-E on Upper Lachine around 23:00.

Yesterday:

St-Laurent's 30-236 was on the 405 in the afternoon.

Frontenac's 32-024 was on the 71.

I took 28-113 on the 220 (14:30 departure from Du Collège). It's missing a Novabus logo on the front interior. To my surprise, the bus was quite full!

There were 6 buses parked as the 460 at Dorval around 16:10:

  • Stinson's 24-307 left at 16:10 as a St-Denis extra (460-44).
  • 23-219
  • LaSalle's 26-008
  • St-Denis' 31-089
  • 36-024
  • 37-103

All 460 departures from 16:15 to 17:02 are operated by Legendre or Stinson so 26-008 and 31-089 must have been running out of one of those divisions.

 

Today:

23-203 and 237 were on the 211.

I love it when dispatchers have a sense of humor and do that! I've seen 30-170 on the 170 and 30-177 on the 177 before. Or when they put a sequence of buses on the same route (for example 32-808 and 809 were on the 121 today).

21844 often on the 44 in PM rush! I get a real kick out of this at RTL but the odds are easier for it. The bus routes here can have low numbers and every year we buy new buses, so the probability is pretty good for everything to line up.

38-086 was my 217 home from Fairview and the driver left 5 minutes early (iBus screen said départ dans 5 minutes) !!

There is zero tolerance at (I suspect) most bus companies for jumping the gun ahead of time from a terminal. So either this driver was ridiculously late or the driver was an extra. Fairview usually has a CO to monitor the drivers, and even if no management is present, the technology is out there to describe everything. I do not see why the driver would risk a summons and possible suspension, even if he or she was doing the crappiest shift of all time.

That's really strange! It's still tracking on the 108 right now. It's out until the 1:10 90 departure from Atwater (108-13).

Perhaps these buses will replace the hybrids that SL is sending them so that SL isn’t decreasing it’s fleet.

31-220 and 37-030 on the 202, 37-026 on the 205, 37-021 on the 216, 28-033 on the 206. 28-029 on the 419. SL seems to be getting random buses lately. Mostly seen at Fairview.

Yeah that's what I suspect too. I hope SL also gets some of their 26 and 27s since they have none and they're the best sounding buses in the fleet imo. Otherwise that wouldn't be a very good trade.

31-220 was probably a Stinson extra. Did you see it around 8:00? There were quite a few LaSalle 28s and Stinson 37s tracking on SL routes this morning too.

LaSalle's 24-289 is currently on the 200.

Yes!! I totally agree. This might sound crazy but I’ve never been on a 2006. I used to live in the SD area and when I moved to the West Island, the 26’s got switched. I finally caught 27-021 on the 15 on Saturday.

I actually saw it En Transit at Atwater around 10:00. I didn't think anything of it because I thought it may have been running out of Frontenac or doing a Stinson renfort. I guess it isn't that crazy for Lasalle to run a 4th gen hybrid as I'm sure a lot of the drivers are trained on the electric buses, which are relatively similar.

37-017 was tracking on the 101 this morning, but seemed to return to Stinson by PM rush, when I saw it tracking on the 165.

It did become a Frontenac bus for a while. I saw it at Atwater around 18:25 yesterday and it had the FR bumper.

Thanks. I didn't notice the rear bumper since I left the bus from the front and didn't look back.

Today:

- 28-120 was on the 105 for most of the day.

- I caught LaSalle's 28-017 on the 17 late in the morning.

- 32-018 was on the 36 nearing Place-St-Henri at around 13:40.

- Frontenac's 31-081 was parked at Angrignon metro at around 14:15.

- I took 29-117 on the 113. It sounds nice: sounds as if it doesn't have TopoDyn.

- 32-028 was on the 77 this evening at L-G at around 18:00.

- 29-155 broke down on St-Antoine/Atwater at 18:15.
