I saw 38-005 on the 460 this afternoon!

I'm pretty sure 24-304 along with 24-306 are Legendre buses. They're there most of the time with occasional stints at LaSalle like many other Legendre buses.

LS 29-061 was on the 419 this afternoon. It wasn't tracking.

30-152 was on the 213 at 7 this morning. This bus was clearly in some form of accident recently.
The whole left side advertisement was ripped off of the bus and so was part of the left wall... exposing the internal metal wall of the bus. In my opinion, this bus should not be in service. If I  cross roads with this bus again, I’ll take a picture. 
 

30-163 is on the 170. 
also, 39-099 is on the 200 running out of SL.

How odd! And they sent it out again in the afternoon on the 485 (running that now).

I took 29-081 on the 90-E yesterday morning. It has blue rear fleet numbers, the same font and size as the ones on the front of hybrids.

31-170 was on the 105 this morning with a Fido wrap (FR extra 61-52).

LS 29-061 was on the 419

I saw it arriving at fairview around 15:00

Today:

24-265, 411

27-017, 495

 

I might have also forgot to mention this, but I made a spreadsheet with the list of extras of certain lines that I've searched. This one is for Fall 2019. The colours chosen for the garages were based on @West Island Transit Fan's spreadsheet. The spreadsheet can be found in my signature.

Caught Azur trainset 54 tonight on the Orange line.

I rode it yesterday midday! Is it the latest delivery? It sure looked clean and fresh.

Yes, is the last delivery from the first order (it's actually one of the two free trains). It was delivered at the end of June and entered service during the summer.

LS 29-061 was on the 419 (got on it). Does anyone know what causes the noise inside the bus near the front when a bus makes a sharp turn? That noise on this bus was super loud.

I hear that noise sometimes on a 2018 hybrid. I think that when the bus makes a sharp turn, the tires turn to the point where it rubs against part of the bus chassis, causing a loud noise (I'm no mechanical engineer though).

This morning:

  • I saw SN 37-010 and a 39-0XX on the 171

This evening:

  • 24-208 was on the 121
  • 31-034 was on the 171 E (LE extra)

LS 29-054 was on the 177.

MR's rocket bus 25-217 was on the 209

27-024 was En Transit on Boul. des Sources.

31-122 was on the 468 (LE extra).

FR 39-032 was parked at CT SL.

I also noticed that when I ride a hybrid bus now (usually a 38-XXX bus), the engine turns back on with a louder noise (for the stop and go system). Before, the engine would turn on silently (particularly 37-055 and up as well as the 38-XXX). Now it seems that most if not all hybrid buses have the loud takeoff noise.

Here's a comparison of a Novabus lfs hev engine turning back on silently vs loudly (to show what I mean by a 'silent' and 'loud' takeoff noise). I couldn't find videos of STM hybrid buses with the engine turning off and back on, so I'm using TTC bus videos instead (I don't own these videos. The authors can be found by visiting the YouTube page of each video). The TTC and STM have similar hybrid bus models.

(You may want to wear headphones/earphones to hear the differences)

Silent takeoff:

Loud takeoff:

As for the loud takeoff, I noticed it too on 39-XXXs as well as on the first half of the 37-XXXs, weirdly (37-001 to 37-054). IMO, these buses probably have similar components for their starters, but that's just my guess.

I am glad that you shared these videos because I also noticed one thing that these TTC hybrids tend to do when they takeoff that the later half of 37s (37-055 to 37-107) also did when they were new. At 10:58 of the silent video, the engine seems to rev really high during takeoff while the bus was on what seemed like a flat road. I can remember taking 37-058, 064 and 066 last year and these buses accelerated just like that and would pick up speed much faster than other hybrids. Today, the STM hybrids only rev high when on load, uphill or at speed on a highway. Curious to know what changes were probably made.

Also, 25-217 is a LS bus.
