Today's Sightings


Recommended Posts

Many of Stinson's 2011s seem to have moved:

31-050 was on the 203.

31-058 was on the 200.

31-055 was on the 405.

I also saw 30-152 at Fairview today. It was at Stinson when it opened, then moved to St. Laurent some time later, and finally to Lasalle in January of this year.

Anjou's 27-514 was on the 90 all day.

Finally, there's an MR-73 (one of the three elements was 096) on the Orange line with a wrap for the Montreal e-Prix. It covers the area between the bottom of the windows and the bottom of the doors.

I think its getting clearer that the 31-xxx from Stinson (31-046 to 31-059) are now based at St-Laurent. I saw plenty of them at the terminus Fairview (31-048, 31-052,31-054 & 31-058).  They were not on the 72 or the 216.  For the hybrid, the highest number that they receive is now the 37-052 (still not in service).

Perhaps it are those moving out to make space for the new incoming hybrids. Didn't expect those to move!

Some of them are at Lasalle though. I mentioned seeing 31-055 on the 405 the other day.

I also saw 31-057 on the 123 on Wednesday, and 31-059 on the 123 today.

31-056 was on the 104 today.

Other sightings:

28-096 is at Frontenac now, it was on the 24 yesterday.

24-259 was on the 144 yesterday afternoon.

I caught 24-289 for the fourth time in two weeks on the 90 yesterday.

And the 31-053 was on the 128!!!

Legendre's 31-121 was parked at Frontenac along with 22-241 and 22-322. 22-322 has the rear checkered bumper, I thought this was an Anjou bus and 22-241 is always parked outside every other week.

Anjou's 27-528 was heading to Frontenac.

22-251 was En Transit with a white driver's vent.

29-046 was on the 93 with a driver's vent from a pre-2009 LFS!

28-096 was back at St. Laurent on Saturday. I saw it on the 204.

I caught 22-306 on the 90 yesterday, and Stinson's 22-287 was at Atwater waiting to do a subsequent 90 run. I actually caught 22-287 on the 162 last week, so this must be a recent move.

30-057 was on the 51 today with a wrap for Poppers Ice coolers.

31-148 was on the 166 this afternoon.

I caught 22-393 on the 90 this evening. It's always nice to catch buses older than 2003 at Lasalle, since they don't have any of their own. (All of them seem to be loaners from other garages).

I went to the east end today for the first time in years, and I was unlucky enough to get Lasalle's 24-206 on the 487. 

The same thing happened to me a few weeks ago when I decided to take a Legendre route (460) and ended up getting 27-521. 

22-228 was on the 141. It sounded similar to 21-232 (extremely loud, like something is wrong with it).

There was a white 1st gen LFS driving around as well. I saw it twice, once at Honoré Beaugrand around noon and once on Sherbrooke in RDP around 13:00. The fleet number on it appeared to be 2-01, but I didn't get a great view of it either time.

31-058 was on the 90 this morning, so it must have been moved to Lasalle. This means they have the continuous set from 31-055 to 31-075 now.

I caught 22-348 on the 90 this morning as well. It was recently at St. Laurent as I caught it on the 204 last Saturday.

Yesterday afternoon, the 162 was operating entirely with camera-free buses: 21-232, 22-250 and 22-300. This is a fairly rare occurrence these days because most routes have at least one late night run at any given time. For example, 22-348's run on the 90 today (90-01) is the only non-camera-requiring run on the that route from about 11:00 to 15:30 on Saturdays, and the only run earlier than 90-01 which can receive buses older than 2005 is 195-35, which does one eastbound departure at 10:19.

You will see at lot of SL buses around the city for the next couple of months. The whole mechanical area is being refurbed this summer, so buses are sent to other divisions for repairs. Some drivers were transferred to Stinson from what I heard.

I'm pretty sure that they did have cameras installed in the same place as on the 2005-2008 models, hidden behind the iBus screen. I haven't been on one in a long time though so this isn't with 100% certainty.

 

28-118 was on 90-13 today.

22-304 was on the 105 this morning (run 64-06) with a shiny new front.

I caught 28-707 on the 90 today. In scouring through my sightings (that I take systematically), I noticed that I haven't seen 28-708 since at least before my hard drive crash in February. Does anyone know if something is wrong with this bus?

All 2005 to 2008 buses have cameras now?

I think that bus was repaired from a collision.

All buses 2006 and up have cameras. Some 2005 buses were equipped when they were running out of MR which had a very limited selection of buses to equipe efore the arrival of the hybrids

I have yet to notice any 2005s without cameras. I try to verify whenever I ride them, and can confirm that the majority of them do in fact have cameras (I can provide specific fleet numbers upon request). I think Mont Royal had pretty much all the 25-2XX before the hybrids arrived.

Sighting from yesterday:

 

27-021 parked on St-Paul Street behind the Bonsecours Market with the front destination sign on Leadership APTA / Navette événements and then it left En transit.

22-261 was on the 103 this afternoon but it had the Frontenac rear bumper.

St. Laurent's 28-078 was on the 92.

26-043 was on the 10 this evening with all it's brake lights stuck on. I told the driver and he called it in and he was really appreciative I told him of this. He thought it was the ABS light he has on but I guess now he has two problems. :P After checking the STM app, his departures were cancelled and replaced with an accessible bus 2 hours later.

24-244 was on the 51 this morning.

I caught 31-183 on the 24 around 11:15. A man in a wheelchair wanted to get on but the ramp didn't work, the motor driving the ramp wasn't strong enough to counteract gravity, so it only lifted part way.

Later on, I caught 31-073 on the 90 and noticed that most of the speakers were covered with duct tape.

It seems like a lot of the weekend 419 drivers don't realize that the route is extended to Terminus MacDonald. 22-205's driver turned the motor off after I got off at John Abbott this afternoon. The same thing happened the last time I took the weekend 419 a few weeks ago with a different driver. 

29-079 was on the 206.

30-161 was on the 201.
