The STM is lucky the union did not see that. I was doing the planibuses one night at Legendre and it was a new guy assigning buses and he was putting artics on route like the 52 and the 140 as well as the 460. The union got involved as the drivers made complaints as these routes are not official artic routes. An artic ran on the 140 for 7.5 hours on another occasion, new driver, who happens to be relieved by a Union rep, again it was not a pretty site.

Lucky the 460 no longer has the old portion of the route that ran under the met. There is still a small portion, but the 100 also passes there so the artics fit, but the old portion was very narrow and buses were always hitting the curb when making turns.

Artic on the Liège bus LOL

As for hitting the curb, it is up to STM to contact voirie at the City to fix the problem.

Why are they using some of their newest buses for the mobile clinic?

These buses are ideal for a mobile clinic as it is easier to do a thorough cleaning of these buses since they have plastic seats as opposed to the cushion ones. There is also more open space in the new layout of these buses.
