38-013 was on the 20 going East near Ste-Julie at 10:30, En Transit. Any idea where it's going?

Probably to the Prevost Facility near Quebec City. Warrenty work is sent to Nova Bus facilities to help with the back log of repairs already in progress.

29-060 was on the 80 this evening. Looks like the STM might not run artics for the time being with the low ridership numbers.

In regards to the planibuses, I highly doubt the STM would modify the timetables. They would need to get the Union's approval, have all drivers go through the selection process again (takes almost 2 months to get them all done). The modifications to the 747 are easier as they are all given to spare board and overtime. There are no assigned drivers to them. They are built the day before by the computer. It will result in less buses need for the 747 and the buses will be dispatched elsewhere in mean time, but if the COVID-19 situation ends before the end of the booking, the 747 can return back to normal in the time of a few keystrokes.

Some odd stuff on SD territory this afternoon: LE 31-031 and LS 32-020 (weird front numbers, it's probably repaired from an accident) on the 92, and LS 29-138 on the 92MR.

Spotted MR 36-030 on 125 this afternoon (not tracking).

Also spotted 40-053 En Transit. I guess the new batch of the 40 series buses are coming very soon.

The flip side to the argument is that less buses equals more people on the bus. Not the best idea when everyone should be actively pursuing social distancing.

Another important point is that there is a ''listes" (board period) that needs to be respected. We cannot drop everything and run a Sunday schedule 7 days a week. 

Suppose there are nurses that depend on getting to their hospitals via transit. We must continue to serve these vitally important people!!

It seems like the STM will in fact reduce its service very soon according to their website:

I had it inactive since February 2019!

Yesterday, 38-068 was on the 68 and 3 7 - 0 9 2 (its front exterior fleet numbers are spaced out like that, probably as a result of the accident it was in) was on the 485.

Today, LE 30-882 was on the 470 and 30-208 was on the 121.
