22-292 Exited Anjou ET this Afternoon (Legendre??)

It was at Stinson for the past few years, then moved to Lasalle for a few days, then Frontenac. Who knows where it will end up next?

-

29-074 was on the 51 during PM rush yesterday. I'm pretty sure the only Stinson extras on the 51 are during AM rush, so this one was probably operating out of MR.

I took SL 22-326 on the 90 this morning.

MR 27-018 was doing a Lasalle extra on the 24 this morning. Kind of funny how (probably) the only 27-0XX at Lasalle got sent out on a route that has lots of them.

I'm sure 22-292 is a Stinson bus. It used to be LaSalle back in the day when they had that massive 286-325 batch.

--

Stinson buses in St. Denis territory: 28-115 on the 93, 28-130 on 179 and 22-239 on the 161 in the morning.

22-290 as En Transit this evening.

23-213 on the 161 in the evening. Still has the original Novabus logo on the front.

Also, there was an artic on the 100 this evening. Did artics make a comeback on this route or Stinson randomly puts whatever they feel like on this route?

Artics are only put on the 100 at Rush Hours

22-241 was doing a school special on Sherbrooke yesterday morning. It does get into service sometimes!

MR 30-077 was on the 105 today.

LE 24-271 was on the 108 around 16:40.

I didn't see too many 2001-2004 LFS out at Lasalle today. 24-271 was pretty much the only one I saw; I didn't see any on the 90 in the morning or during PM rush. This is quite the contrast to the summer when those older buses were doing almost every departure.

Maybe they put them all on the 211 and the other Lionel Groulx routes? :P 

Stinson's 28-120 was on the 161 today.

I wouldn't be surprised. I saw LE 24-260 and 24-272 on those routes this afternoon entering the highway at Fort. Meanwhile, I caught the last non-camera bus on the 90 eastbound (22-271; Stinson extra) around 16:40 since the 4 other runs that could have older buses didn't get them.

28-115 was on the 166 around 7:40.

37-002 was on the 165 at the same time.

LE 22-208 was on the 108 today. 

30-070 was parked with police and STM security around it at the Elmhurst loop this afternoon.

28-099 was on the 90 during PM rush. It seems like Lasalle is getting the first 10 28-XXX from Stinson and St. Denis is getting the subsequent ones.

Based on my sightings this weekend, it's evident that Lasalle still has a lot of them.

Yesterday:

LE 22-388 and 22-393 were on the 191.

SD (?) 22-263 and LE 22-395 were on the 211. I took 22-263.

Today:

I took LE 24-210 on the 90 around 9:20.

LE or SD 23-235 was on the 104 around 9:30, then the 90 in the afternoon.

AN or LE 22-237 was on the 57 in the morning.

SL 22-325 was on the 162 for most of the day.

LS 28-052 was on the 51 around 17:30.

I think it's St. Denis. Legendre usually has the earlier batch of those except 23-201 and 23-202. So if SL has 22-325 do you know if they also have 22-324?

22-303 was on the 18 today. This was not a Stinson bus as previously mentioned by Gerbil and I doubt it's a St. Denis bus so which garage does it belong to?

Stinson's 22-239 was on the 18.

Stinson's 27-502 and 27-503 were on the 141 and the other as En Transit at Honore-Beaugrand respectively.

22-323 parked outside Frontenac.

Mont Royal's 26-085 parked at Frontenac.

22-256 came out today but left as a 24 between two departures.

I think 22-324 and 22-325 are both SL buses. The wiki says so and even though it hasn't been updated for a long time, SL's 2002's haven't moved for the most part. You're right that it was probably originally at Lasalle though, there's a break in the VIN numbers between 22-325 and 22-326. If I'm not mistaken, 22-325 is the last bus with the old Nova BUS logo.

I'm not sure about 22-303. It could also be a SL bus, but I don't recall ever seeing it there. They received 305-307 from Lasalle quite a few years ago.

24-230 and 24-298 were on the 90 yesterday. They're back from FR and SD, respectively.

I took LE 24-209 on the 90 early yesterday morning. This was my first time taking one of those blue light buses in the dark. Blue lights are far nicer than those banana yellow ones some 31s and 32s have.

I took 30-003 on the 90 as run 756-115 (renfort) during PM rush yesterday. The iBus screen had "Lachine" on the top line and "Detour en cours" on the bottom one. Does this mean it's the renfort assigned for the Lachine area? Or could it just be that it was doing the 491 earlier(since the route name is "Lachine")?

I saw 30-074 operating on the 90 around 16:30 with the interior lighting off. I'm pretty sure the drivers aren't able to turn it off, so it must have been an electrical problem. I wonder if the driver got that changed off. That run had a few hours left on the 427 and 97 before it had to return to the garage.

31-202 turned onto Ste. Catherine from a side street in Westmount... Odd.

Stinson didn't send many second generation LFS out today. According to the STM site, the 105 was front ramp only from 8:25 to 22:43 westbound and from 8:48 to 23:47 eastbound. That's impressive for such a frequent route!

Perhaps they were all sent on routes like the 64 or rush hour routes. 22-217 was on the 115 this morning.

31-834 broke down in front of the Tim Hortons at Pie-IX and Jarry this morning with the three triangles placed behind it.

Frontenac's 22-296 was on the 192 this morning too.

You're right. Drivers have no way of turning the lights off inside the bus (STM buses), except for putting it into reverse. I once had an alternator problem that caused the inside lights to go off. Normally the bus should not be running with passengers with no lights when it's dark out. If it was an alternator problem, the bus was probably taken out of service as quick as possible. 

I was on the 105 this evening and did not see anything older than a 29-000

In Stinson facility, we can barely see buses under 29-072 for the 40 foot.  They have a few 21-22 & 28-xxx (28-124 to 132).  In general, they have 29-072 to 29-108, 30-030 to 30-053, some random 36 & all the 37 except a few of them (generally between 37-055 & 37-079) are at Mont-Royal.

22-208, 22-398 and 24-276 were on the 90 yesterday. I took 22-398.

SL 28-078 was on the 105 both days this weekend. The STM app was indicating it as a front ramp bus.

MR 30-067 was on the 105 this morning.

I took 30-079 on the 51 this morning. It's been unwrapped.

Yesterday:

 Legendre's 23-205 and 23-207 were on the 90 around noon. 

St. Denis' 22-372 as En Transit at Fairview. 

--

Today:

Anjou's 22-315 parked outside Frontenac.

Stinson 22-239, 28-130 and 29-101 and St. Laurent's 22-282 parked outside St. Denis.

30256 (as numbered on the sides) was on the 141.

28-063 was on the 141 but this bus has a different front bumper.

Legendre's 22-393 was on the 109.

25-247 was on the 106. Is this a LaSalle or MR bus?

24-271 En Transit on Graham Blvd. (near Hwy 40) This bus belongs to which garage?

It's normally at Legendre, but it was on loan to Lasalle not that long ago. Based on the where you saw it, it's probably been returned to Legendre.

The 25-2XX seem to move so frequently between MR and LS that I can't really tell what's based where.  I record which buses I ride, and I've been on nearly every 25-2XX in the past year. Almost all of them were operating out of Lasalle when I took them.

-

I took LE 22-206 on the 90 yesterday morning.

I took 29-001 on the 51 (SD extra) yesterday afternoon. This bus used to be at Lasalle along with several other 29-0XX. I haven't seen any of them in the past couple of months though, so I wonder if they've all been transferred to Saint Denis. I also took 29-002 operating out of SD quite a while ago.

22-292 is back at Stinson. It was parked at Vendome as the 105 during PM rush. The flap on the back of the bus covering the ventilation fans had mostly fallen off (maybe the hinge had rusted), so the CO and driver were examining it.

29-001 and 002 were at LaSalle along with a bunch of other random ones but when new they were St. Denis buses. Anjou had a few random ones too or still does but both garages had buses older than 29-020.
