Caught 29-038 on the 107 this afternoon. Finally got on one of these 29 series 2nd gens. Haven't taken one of these since a very long time. 

Since you seem to ride the 107 often, I'm impressed you've managed to go this long without riding one! Lasalle has so many these days, I usually end up taking them several times a week (3 rides this past week, for example).

I took AN 30-215 on the 90-E around 8:00 Monday.

I took FR 26-048 on the 90-W around 18:32 yesterday, running 9 minutes late. The 18:15 departure was cancelled due to the bus shortage, so there was a pretty big backlog of people.

Blasphemous, I know but I passed up a crowded 23-210 yesterday morning in favour of an empty 29-112. 29-112 was on a departure (8:29 90-EB from Elmhurst) that is cancelled most of the time. In fact, it was cancelled today and 4/5 days last week.

I took MR 30-068 on the 90-E at 8:07 this morning.

I like these early 29 series (minus the beaten-up look), interior layout is nice and unique. So far I get either a 3rd gen or a 25/26 series when I take this route. My next goal is to take one of the 28-7XX hybrids, I have only been on one of these once.

Caught 32-020 on the 107 this morning, with banana light. Run 83. Also saw 29-037 on this route.

In the afternoon, saw 38-024 on the 144... running out of MR.

Later, spotted 26-037 on the 92. Run 07.

Edit - from iBus: 39-064 resurfaced and is now running on the 129, run 09.

It doesn't help that almost half of the 28-7XX are out of service right now.

I also took 32-020 today, on the 90-W at 18:43. Same run. Announcements were working but it wasn't tracking.

SL 28-121 was on the 63-N leaving Atwater at 18:41.

25-225 was on the 16 today.

Spotted on the Legendre shuttle: 31-121 with A/C (took it), 31-208 with plastic seats (took it) and 30-205.

Spotted the barbecued 26-055 parked outside the carrosserie part of Legendre.

Spotted 29-011 on the 496 at Gare Dorval around 14:45. It hasn't been seen since July according to my spreadsheet, but it wasn't tracking so that may explain why. 

30-205 was my Legendre shuttle both ways. 31-144 was on it too. 

I took AN 26-037 on the 100 leaving Crémazie Metro at 17:35. The second to last single seat on the driver side had a blue vinyl seat bottom.

Stinson or Legendre's 24-306 was on the 55 today.

24-226 and 24-297 were on the 105 today. Got on 24-226.

Anjou's 39-044 was also on the 105.

39-019 makes a return to a Stinson route as a Frontenac bus on the 162! Also on the 162 later on was their 26-051.

30-092 was on the 51 with a wrap for Glenlivet.

Stinson's 29-152 was doing a renfort 104 at Vendome. Also later I saw Mont Royal's 25-208 getting towed away from Atwater. Must be why 29-152 came.

Anjou's 29-005 was doing the 90. Someone affixed a no-boarding sticker on the rear left hatch. 

Legendre's 24-276 was on the 496.

Mont Royal's 30-068 was on the 123.

And the best for last... I saw 40-901 out and about at Vendome today! :o

---

And @Frozen Yogurt 26-055 doesn't have any more equipment in it. Could be retired... :(  Turns out 31-208 was that mysterious test bus for those horrible seats found on the latter half of the 38s and newer.

Turns out the white bus I saw yesterday is RTL 2201! It's in the lot for Cummins (45.4592765, -73.8302030).

Of interest, the fleet number is only 4 digits rather than the typical 5. Does this mean the RTL will only be getting 9 or less buses in 2020?

The speculation can stop now. At 1 pm, GASH took delivery of 22009 and 22016 fresh from NovaBus. What we see above is a missing decal for a fleet number, nothing more...

Someone mentioned here previously that 24-220 got retired. Well its not! It was on the 470 tonight.

The person on Facebook mentioned its license plate was removed. Unfortunately we can't see from your picture, but I wonder if it got a new one?

I took FR 38-008 on the 90-E at 7:50 yesterday (SN extra 90-17).

The same bus was doing the same departure today.
