Funny you mention that because I also took it twice that day!

I took it on the 10:44 eastbound trip from Elmhurst and the 24:42 westbound trip from Atwater.

I took 24-279 on the 90-E this morning (SN extra 460-65).

Lots of cancellations this morning as well, the most I've seen so far.

^ Just glad I'm not taking the 16 anymore. Wonder what it's going to look like this winter.

24-246 was on the 35 this morning.

26-048 was on the 92. Run 76. Chauffeur en formation.

28-126 was on the 17, around noon.

37-042 was on the 129, run 21.

37-064 was on the 129, run 45.

Caught 24-295 on the 129, my "usual" run 09. So I guess the run numbers are still the same as the September period. Not sure what changed in November requiring new GTFS data. I got a nasty surprise today when I saw Stinson buses tracking on some 2092 trip IDs this afternoon, not sure why they scrapped the whole 2079- series ID's in the update of the November GTFS data (I was looking at the original release back in beginning October). In this update though, the trip ID's are messed up, with lots of trip inversions... and I'm still trying to figure them out.

Was it the one that departs from Dorval heading west at 15:18? If so, that departure is meant to help with all the st-Louis and Ste-Anne students getting off the 211E and 411E at Dorval. Before that departure was added, those students were considered lucky if they can get on the 485. Since it mainly carries students from those two schools, I frequently see drivers sign it up with école.

The run numbers should be identical. I think the only route that changed schedule was the 747, which doesn't interline.

It's technically a new board period though, so the driver assignments changed around a bit.

I took MR 30-057 on the 90-E at 9:47. It has the remnants of a blue wrap on the rear door.

I took AN 28-003 on the 90-W at 17:53, it left 10 minutes late. The only reason why I take the 17:43 departure so much is exactly because it is late. It has to deadhead from the western 90 terminus (does the 16:03 WB departure as well).

28-703 was on the 90-E on Upper-Lachine around 18:15. It was completely full and not letting people on due to the 40-minute gap before it. The previous departure was cancelled, as 90-26 didn't get a bus today. EDIT: it did get a bus (29-043), but seemingly only from Vendome-Lachine at 18:29, so for one partial departure.

24-269 was on the 41 today.

STL 9806 was doing the 16h03 (left at that time due to huge lineup) departure of the 65 from Montmorency Metro. Got on it! I can't believe there is a first gen that is still running after 21 years!!! It actually runs and sounds well so I'm not surprised it's still around. It has no credit card reader.

STL 0109 was on the 46 and 0115 was parked with display off. Both at Montmorency as well.

Caught 79-505 (MR-73 Element 03) on the green line this evening. After checking twitter, there was a disruption earlier. That element has only a couple of lights on so it was a dark  spooky halloween ride. From McGill (where I got on) to L-Groulx we picked up very few passengers since it was jam packed.

Saw 24-213 on the 92 this morning, as MR extra.

Caught 29-144 on the 107 this morning.

This afternoon was horrible. Green line shutdown, orange line was running slow (it also appears that every train was running in manual mode) and no service at Lionel-Groulx for both lines.

Then my commuter train broke down at Montpellier. It was the Multilevel train on the Deux-Montagnes line and this trainset is having all kind of problems lately... Just today, from what I heard : main circuit breaker was open ...

23-213 was on the 203 leaving Fairview at 12:14 (6 minutes late; there was lots of traffic on St-Jean due to the traffic light at Brunswick being out).

(Quote from the 22-XXX & 23-2XX Retirement Watch thread) I was on the 485 W (30-151) yesterday. Traffic was super backed up on St-Jean at 17h40, so we were stuck on St-Jean blvd (Between A20 and Fairview) for over 30 minutes (rush hour + traffic light being down)!

Yesterday:

SL 28-100 was on the 16.

AN 29-001 was on the 71.

AN 24-213 was on the 144-E at 17:30 Friday, running out of MR.

I took 24-293 twice on the 90-E yesterday (7:31 and 19:30). It was running about 20 minutes late on the 19:13 departure. The traffic was horrendous due to Turcot-related closures, so this was the first bus for at least an hour (18:21 and 18:46 departures were cancelled).
