Saw 22-340 on route 16 today. Is this bus from Stinson?

It's a St. Laurent bus. It was on the 100 today.

St. Denis' 28-123 was on the 205.

Frontenac's 22-242 was on the 202. Has a white driver's vent.

22-348 was also on the 202.

LaSalle's 24-301 was on the 192. uFnx2.gif Got on it.

28-126 was on the 100, then it got switched off for 37-018. I guess the driver heard that bell one time too many! :lol:

28-132 was on the 105 today.

St. Laurent's 22-347 as En Transit passing by Vendome. Has the 2003+ rear lights.

22-216 was on the 103. Stinson doesn't send out too many old buses on weekends anymore. :(

Stinson's 29-093, Mont Royal's 26-084 and Anjou's 22-422 were all on the 161 today.

Mont Royal's 36-048 was on the 138.

Frontenac's 26-080 entering St. Denis in the evening.

That's really strange! Do you remember if it had a 3-digit run number? Otherwise it may have been operating out of Lasalle and I didn't think their drivers were trained with hybrids. The two 138 runs yesterday were supposed to be 07 and 18.

MR 36-035 on 420 this afternoon

The 15:01 departure from downtown is operated by MR (SN as of Monday though), did you see it around then?

Lasalle sent out a lot of 747 buses today. I imagine they're going to all have to be moved to Stinson tomorrow.

29-149, 31-213 and 31-219 were on the 90 this afternoon while 30-010 was on the 77.

Both 29-149 and 31-219 are even going to end up on the 356 tonight! I rarely ever see these buses on anything but rush hour extras (and the 747 of course).

Also of note, SN 29-088 and SL 22-274 were on the 90.

I also saw 31-211 as En Transit exiting off Highway 20 West at St-Charles, most likely going to John Abbott to do the 211.

Today:

LE 23-205 and FR 32-031 were on the 90.

Stinson's 30-037, 30-038 and 30-040 were on the 108, 104 and 138, respectively.

AN 27-514 was on the 123.

SN 30-048, FR 31-155 and LE 31-208 were on the 51.

FR 26-078 was on the 179.

LS 28-053 was on the 119.

Everything is all over the place! It'll be interesting to see which of these moves end up being permanent.

With the 171 & 747 at Stinson for the rest of 2018, I think(only a feeeling) that the buses between 30-030 & 30-053 will get back to Lasalle.  Everything will probably be all over the place for a week or so until things get stabilize.  This year, they are going to retire some 22-xxx & will get 100 new hybrids (Saint-Laurent & Frontenac are on the list for the new 38-xxx).  A lot of buses will maybe move from a CT to another this year!!!

Around noon, I saw 28-112 on route 117, so these buses are also transferred to St-Laurent from what I can see.

Also saw 29-092 on route 119. More buses from Stinson to St-Denis? It would be interesting to see 29-071 & 072 in a same garage.

Finally, came back home on 31-003 on route 16! I don't know if they ever had the single seat behind the driver, but the space now has a box for iBus equipment.

I haven't seen any rear ramp buses at Stinson this week (or on the weekend, but that's normal).  I wonder if they have any left. Almost no departures on Stinson routes seem to be indicated as rear ramp buses (mostly extras from other garages) - as an example, there were a total of 2 on the 105 today (one a SL extra) according to the STM app.

Yesterday:

SL 22-276 was at McGill metro in the morning.

SL 22-279 was on the 90 during PM rush.

29-084 is still at Stinson. It was on the 105 in the evening.

AN 28-060 was on the 90 in the evening.

Today:

I took 29-117 on the 90 around 9:15 this morning. It was overcrowded and we were leaving behind tons of people at every stop. I overheard the driver telling dispatch he left Lachine on time, yet the console read "+52" when I was getting off. The traffic in Lachine must have been pretty bad.

SN 29-075 and 29-079 were on the 37 and 90, respectively.

SD 29-022 was on the 105 during PM rush.

31-005 at St-Jean / Sedgefield around 2:40 pm today. I only saw the driver side of the bus so I couldn't catch which route it was on but I'm pretty sure it was on the 485 (eastbound) and not the 202 (based on the schedules). Why are these buses getting put on these routes instead of the 747?

Any bus dispatched is better than no bus. There is also the remote chance that it could have been interlined but I do not know crew guides at STM. It might also be the renfort from Lionel-Groulx sent out on open work.

This happened regularly at Lasalle back when they had those buses. They were often sent out during rush hour, although the buses converted to 747 service showed up more. Since Stinson just got the route, the dispatchers  probably aren't familiar enough with it to prioritize sending the 31-00X on the 747 compared to the 30-0XX or 31-21X. I saw 31-003 on the 105 earlier this week.

30-857was on the..... 485!!!! It was at the corner of St-Jean / Douglas-Shand at 2:45 pm going eastbound. Are arctics even allowed to be on this route?

Proof (sorry for the poor quality, I had to act quick haha. Unfortunately, I could not catch the run number either)

That's odd! The 485 doesn't interline with other routes, so I highly doubt that it's a designated artic run. The run box looks to say 0010, which corresponds to the run that is scheduled to do the 485 at that time (485-10). It would have been an interesting ride. On a related note, I once took an artic on my 90 short turn school special several years ago (Westmount to Vendome), it was a Legendre extra.

Yesterday:

I took 29-099 on the 90 during PM rush. 29-088 was also on the 90.

LE 24-276 was on the 123 in the evening.

Today:

I took 29-091 on the 90 during AM rush.

SD 32-002 was doing a LE extra on the 90 during AM rush.

Ex-Stinson 22-261 was on the 144 this morning (now a SD route).

Ex-Stinson 22-240 was on the 90 during PM rush.

Lasalle seems to have received a lot of Stinson's 2009s. Also I still haven't seen anything older than a 2009 at Stinson this week (and 29-022 and 29-084 the other day have been the only 2009s I've seen).
