The doors on the older buses are pneumatic, no? The 39-XXX have electric doors made by Vapor, as opposed to electric doors made by Masats. 

 

I get to ride the 39s often and they are the exact same doors as the 36-000 (hybrids) to 38-000.

 

They will revert back to Vapor in the next order, if they follow their promises.

 

See here, where it clearly says it's for the 2020 order.

The doors have the same outer housing, but I'm pretty sure something mechanically has changed. The doors in the 39-XXX sound notably quieter compared to those in the older hybrids (though some older hybrids have received this modification by now).

@MTL66 reported they were Vapor doors back in January:

They look and sound the same to me, oh well.

I won't pronounce on something I cannot confirm for now, so I'll let this go.

A little "fun" sighting, the "112" ligne locale between Sherbrooke and Montreal has been downgraded from Motorcoach to a much less classy Thomas HDX, spotted 9001-05-3 operating on that service yesterday

Hah that's for the lucky ones. I have even seen a Sprinter van being used on the Sherbrooke local at Terminus Longueuil last year. Could never get a pic. Always driving.

37-100 was on the 470.

28-070 was on the 201-CCW on the A40-W service road at exit 49 (Chenin Ste Marie) around 21:30. It was there because a major accident on A40 forced the shutdown of the St-Charles overpass. When it was back on track, it was running 20 minutes late.

26-055 caught fire this morning on St-Denis on route 24 ☹️. Hopefully it gets repaired like 22-281.

(These are my sightings from various days of this week)

I saw 22-406, 25-236 and 30-230 at CT Saint-Laurent. It might be safe to say that 30-227 to 30-230 are now Saint-Laurent buses.

Stinson's 37-072 was on the 206.

LaSalle's 29-055 was on the 203.

I saw an interesting bus sequence: 30-231 and 30-232 on the 215!

From what I counted, only 14 buses are currently tracking for CTSL on @FelixINXs website. 

The system had trouble for all day. This morning, at around 6, only 15 buses were tracking. We are now at about 130 wich is still not a lot.

SL is really affected (almost no buses in all west island). What's weird is that iBus announcement are still working but no drivers are logged in. Normally there is no announcement at all.

Maybe it's a scheduled maintenance?

LE 24-204 was on the 106.

37-043 and 37-054 crashed into each other at Villa Maria yesterday. I won't post the photos since I don't have the author's permission but if you're interested it's on the Transit in Quebec Facebook page.

The framing for the doors is identical, but I was told by Nova Bus when I was at the plant for an event that buses 38-090 and above reverted back to vapour doors. I don't ride the bus often enough anymore since getting a car, so I cannot be sure.

I know there was a fix issued for the Massat doors, a correction to internal motor that controls the rear doors, as the problems were from there according to a mechanic friend at Anjou.

I wonder what this bus is. I somehow doubt they've brought back a 1991 MCI Classic :P. 

It's tracking at Honoré Beaugrand

What ever bus it is, it's been sitting in the same place since 8:00am, so probably a bug.

38-100 now has the FR bumper. 

Also, 37-048 is also tracking in Africa. Lol

Right now 32-404 is there lol.

This is likely caused by a bug in the GPS coordinates. Felix's app shows this bus with coordinates 0° N, 0° E, which corresponds to that exact location (aka the intersection of the equator and prime meridian).

And now 37-005 is tracking there marked as the 460. The bus driver must of made a huge detour there!

Stinson's 30-005 was on the 208, while their 37-026 was on the 205.

If it's not enough, the last transmission from the "bus" was 13 days ago! Timestamp 1560983780, June 19 2019 at 18:36:20.

Why did it only start appearing today on the map though. This "bus" wasn't there before this morning.
