Saguenay's Terminus Chicoutimi makes for some great photo ops of buses since lots of routes arrive and leave at the same time. Here are some of my photos from 12:15 P.M. today.

All their terminals have the same concept. My favorite from when I was working out there was La Baie along the waterfront. Used to take bike from the base down to th waterfront, beck when I used a small point and shoot and not a DSLR.

Anjou's 26-049 was on the 215 then interlined to the 206 at Fairview at 14:40.

St-Denis' 31-027 and 25-233 were also spotted near Fairview. Didn't note their routes. 

EDIT: And 30-015 entered into the Fairview main terminal as the 485. It was doing a renfort according to its trip ID.

AN 27-526 was on the 68 this afternoon.

38-094 was on the 207 with no rear exterior fleet number, just like sister bus 38-096.

SN 31-211 was on the 68E.

LS 28-008 and AN 30-189 were on the 485.

38-067 was on the 218, not tracking. 

FR 26-045 was on the 407I. This is a very odd one: for buses who start their run as the 407-E, instead of deadheading directly from CT SL to the 407 terminus on Ile-Bizard, buses partially do the loop that would be done by the 407-O or 207-N (see diagram). For whatever reason, it's classified as an Industrial run but I guess they don't have anything else to call it. Consequently though, it does not appear on the regular schedules nor the static GTFS data, so nobody knows about it, making it quite useless...  

Also, 26-045 was not tracking.

How the hell can a brand new bus that just entered service be already broken! I hope the rest of the fleet will be more durable..

ST Laval 1816 wrapped for Doordash, saw it on Le Corbusier central reserved lane in am rush on unknown route, and midday on the 63

One of the oldest buses and apparently brought back from the dead relatively recently: ST Laval 0105 on 65 am rush and 42 midday

Lastly, one of the oldest buses in the Greater Montreal Area, ST Laval 0006 was seen deadheading near Montmorency Terminus midday as well.

I don't know what happened this week, but while fanning at Henri-Bourassa metro on Friday, I noticed a lot of buses operating on routes that it does not belong too. SL buses on the 30, Stinson, SL and MR buses on the 48/49, amongst others.

SL 30-177 and 32-020 were on the 460. 32-020 was not tracking, and is likely not a LS bus anymore due to the 40 series.

28-009 was on the 175, not tracking. 28-006 and 008-011 have been transferred to SN. 

32-027 was on the 72. Some 32-02X have been sent to SL.

AN 27-536 is still at SN, was on the 100.

AN 39-093 was on the 175.

 37-016 was not tracking on a 460 SN extra. 

30-074 was on a 460 MR extra. It has the rear Frontenac bumper. 

40-035 was on a 460 LS extra. I found it amusing how the new larger font made "Métropolitaine" unable to fit onto the side display, so they put "Métropolitn" instead (pic attached).

They really need to figure out how to properly program these new signs. Does not look very professional..
