It's strange to see predominantly only St. Denis buses on Stinson routes these past few days. But out of curiousity, do you know how many buses are assigned to these 124 Ecole runs?

22-235 was on the 161. It's rare to see the early 22s on St. Denis routes since they got only the newer 22s (like 22-352+).

22-252 has the tail lights from a 2003+ LFS.

It's a very short route (from Vendome to Marianopolis CEGEP; under 10 minutes each way). I'm pretty sure that only one bus operates on it at any given time, but due to interlining, different buses can appear on it throughout the day. Here's a schedule I found on the Marianopolis website: http://www.marianopolis.edu/about-marianopolis/how-to-reach-us/shuttle-bus/

Now Stinson buses are appearing in foreign territory:

22-253 was on run 90-26 today.

Stinson's 28-099 was on the 18 tonight.

28-125 was on the 124 tonight. It has no STM logo on the left side.

23-226 getting towed by the blue Kenworth truck heading towards the 25 North entrance from Sherbrooke.

22-408 was on the 139 tonight.

I saw 25-241 on the 51 today. It has a Venturi exhaust pipe like on the 27-5XX and up.

Lasalle seems to be training some new drivers. 29-148 and 31-003 were both doing training runs on the 90 this morning.

29-148 was over 10 minutes late when it arrived at my stop with 27-535 (which I got on), and it arrived at Atwater 20 minutes late. (28-041, the bus scheduled 10 minutes after 27-535, caught up as well).

And to continue with my bad luck, the 17:17 westbound 90 departure from Atwater was a no-show so I ended up on a packed 26-005 for the subsequent departure. While I was waiting, I witnessed 30-026 getting changed off for 30-011 which a mechanic had driven over. (They were on a 104 run).

Finally, as stated before, 31-003 was on the 90 during AM rush along with 31-004. Lasalle has been pretty good about not dispatching those 747 buses on regular routes this board period; today was only the second time I've seen them off of the 747. Usually it's 30-001-30-020 and 31-211-31-220 that end up on rush hour extra runs.

I wonder if Marianopolis subsidizes these extras. I bet they regret the convenience of their old campus just off of Côte-des-Neiges with frequent service!

I never heard of CEGEP extras for any other routes like the 56 and the old 77 and 210. Oh well!

St. Denis 29-063 and 29-064 on the 105 this afternoon.

Stinson's 37-004 was on the 37 then it interlined into the 105, what the heck? uFnx2.gif

28-704 was on the 90 this afternoon. This one has the current STM paint scheme.

28-707 was on the 411 this afternoon and this one has the older STM paint scheme.

31-168 was on the 405. This bus has a Thermoking AC and you might think this is a Frontenac bus but it is not!

23-232 was on the 74 this afternoon.

If you ever want the chance to catch a hybrid on the 37, that run (105-29) does the 14:45 Southbound departure from Vendome and the 15:50 northbound departure from Angrignon.

Even more interesting this board period is the 495: there are 3 consecutive Stinson runs departing Dorval 14:15 to 15:10 and 15:30 to 16:31 from Carrefour Angrignon. The strangest of them, 495-23, interlines from the 100 and later goes on to do the 203 and 217.

Thanks for the info.

28-009 was on the 90 today. It has a white driver's vent and this bus looks like it was repaired from a collision.

Legendre's 31-221 and LaSalle's 29-114 were both on the 32 this evening.

22-391 seems to be running out of Lasalle now. It was on the 138 today around 18:00.

In addition, I've noticed that many of the 30-02X have been transferred from Stinson to Lasalle. For example, 30-026 was on the 90 today, and I've also seen 30-021, 023, 024, 028 and 029 running on Lasalle routes over the past few weeks.

29-064 is back at St. Denis after a short stint at Stinson as it was on the 161 this morning. Got on it.

Also on the 161 was 25-241 with the Venturi exhaust previously seen by Gerbil and I also got on 22-218. Front looks redone recently.

23-230 was on the 141 with a really tiny rear Priorite sign.

RTL 21221 is wrapped in yellow for Promutuel so you cannot miss it

One of Frontenac's buses has that wrap as well. It's 32-019 I believe, and it usually runs on the 15.

31-066 is back from its accident a few weeks ago. It's been on the 63 all day.

24-281 had a non-functioning wheelchair ramp when I caught it on the 90. Luckily the woman in the wheelchair was with some other people who lifted her into the bus. In addition to that, the police have been directing traffic on Atwater this week (at Tupper and St. Catherine) so it took about 10 minutes for us to get from the terminus (Atwater/Tupper) to the second stop (Place Alexis Nihon).

There were a lot of hybrids at Atwater and St. Catherine when I was there at 8:45.

I had just gotten off 37-002 which was on the 90. Right behind was 28-704 on the 63, 28-706 was heading north along Atwater on the 138, and 28-707 was turning from Atwater onto St. Catherine on the 90. It would have made a good picture.

Yesterday, 28-099 was on the 64. It's back from St. Denis.

Today:

28-704 was on the 106 this morning.

32-017 was towed to Frontenac in the evening on the white STM Kenworth truck.

32-019 is the bus with the Promutuel insurance company wrap. It was on the 125 but it left Viau at some completely random time between two departures!

The 90 really doesn't come often enough going eastbound during PM rush. 28-037 left over 10 people behind in front of the Super C on Saint Jacques (Saint Jacques/ No. 6910) while it was doing the 16:18 departure because it was full. It was running on time and the previous bus was not canceled. Considering how many more stops there were before the bus reached Vendome (where most people get off), I'm sure plenty more people were left behind. It's always packed at this time, yet it comes more often on Saturdays and Sundays, when the buses aren't even close to full. (Every 12-15 minutes on Saturdays, and every 14-20 minutes on Sundays compared to 20-21 minutes on weekdays).
