Mont Royal's 30-086 was on the 104. It's rare for a MR 3rd gen to appear on a LaSalle route.

24-227 was on the 103.

24-297 was on the 460 this evening.

Just saw a mini Exo bus heading north on Des Sources and Pierrefonds. I wonder what it was doing there.

Today I saw the following buses at CT Saint-Laurent:

  • Frontenac's 38-015
  • Mont-Royal's 30-077. This bus is missing a few parts at the rear.
  • Anjou's 30-219. Perhaps CT Saint-Laurent will receive more diesel buses when Anjou gets more hybrids.

When I was taking 31-068 on the 90 yesterday morning, I noticed it showing "Départ dans 2 minutes" a few times at intermediate stops. We were ahead of schedule. I think this is new, as I've only seen it at termini in the past.

I saw the same thing when I boarded 33-838 on the 470 at Fairview heading to Côte-Vertu yesterday. It was saying "Départ dans 3 minutes". It was also ahead of schedule. This must be a new thing.

I passed by there as well today and saw all those as well as LS 25-212, MR 25-240, LS 29-121, and 31-197.

30-065 was deadheading SB on Atwater signed as "919 Trainbus Mont-Royal/Namur" this morning. I guess this will be a new route once the Deux Montagnes line stops going through the tunnel.

Caught 24-224 on the 470 twice today. This overcrowded rush hour bus seemed to be in worst shape than some of the 2002 buses out there.

I took 28-018 on the 90-E at 8:20 (SL extra 196-63) this morning. This run has mostly been getting ex-LS 2008's lately. Very dull. This one was marginally interesting because it's an ex-AN bus I'd never taken before.

Just saw a brand new Nova Bus LFS hybrid with the new drivers window and the rear destination sign in the top right corner heading east on the highway  40 by Sources. 

I also saw that bus. Maybe the 40 series will be configured like this.

Yesterday (August 2nd), I was on the road and happened to cross Réseau de Transport de la Capitale's 1952, another VanHool, in Edmunston, New Brunswick, on a flatbed. It was heading towards Québec City.

yesterday was August 2nd, not 3rd

I took 28-009 on the 90-W at 20:30. It left Atwater 19 minutes late! The bus scheduled after (29-067) left a few minutes before and was packed when we passed it.

Also, the schedules and GTFS data for the fall are out. I'll update my site in the next few hours.

24-237 is confirmed retired! :o Parked at St. Denis yesterday.

Mont Royal's 25-230 was my 211 this evening. It doesn't seem to run well and it's idle sounds a bit off.

24-230 as En Transit at Gare Dorval.

I took 24-258 on the 90-W at 17:59. It still has the TopoDyn transmission, so it makes for a unique ride: quieter than the other 2001-2004 models. It also has a high pitched bell. The floor has buckled behind the front curb-side wheel. It's been patched over with duct tape.

I took MR 26-056 on the 495 this afternoon. Accessibility violation as usual at LaSalle. It has a high pitched bell and large front exterior fleet numbers.

LE 24-273 was on the 405 and their 24-274 was on the 106. Lots of LE and MR loaners at LS but not the other way around currently.

When you look at the schedules for LS routes, there are just way too many accessible runs. The 90-E is all accessible departures from 14:55 until the end of the day (20 different runs), for example.

I took 24-243 on the 90-W at 17:46 today. Guess what? Also an accessibility violation. This was the last LS 24-XXX I had no record of riding. I'm mostly missing AN's 24-XXX now. I've been on all the 24-XXX from LE except 24-234, 24-264 and 24-271, and most of the SN ones.
