Today's Sightings


Recommended Posts

A few days ago, I saw 36-902 on the 36 in the blue livery (with haphazardly applied fleet numbers). I guess all 3 are re-wrapped in the standard livery now.

Over the weekend, 41-016 was parked outside Stinson.

This morning. 28-036 was on the 72X, 28-098 was on the 177 and 28-106 was on the 475. 30-017 was ET with racks. Seems like they're keeping 30-016 to 020 as airport runners, since none of those buses have been spotted without racks yet.

This afternoon. 28-034 was on the 810, 28-055 was on the 215, 28-071 was on the 202 and 28-091 was on the 460. 30-015 was on the 810 without racks.

This evening. 40-905 went eastbound on Côte-Vertu as chauffeur en formation. The rear destination sign said 803.

37-085 was at Stinson.  I guess the remaining of the 37-xxx in Mont-Royal will go back to Stinson in a few days... (what else is new)😏 

Bah 🥱 as if I haven't taken enough 37 series already.

Around noon, there was a 30-01X (I forgot the number, but I think it was 30-012) on the 16.

27-028 was on the 196-N in the afternoon.

I agree with you on that one. I also hope that SN gets a break from that hot potato that is called the 747.

 

Yesterday:

• MR’s 37-085 was on the 105 in the evening.

• FR’s 26-044 was on the 138 around 19:00.

• 30-010 and 30-011 were on the 105 at evening rush hour. Both don’t have the luggage racks anymore, as mentioned previously.

Idk if this is mentioned, but 32-026 has that tellement Montreal ad wrap around it’s bus. 
 

So that means SN will become the first garage with a full series(37-000) 😒

No, all the 2016s are assigned to MR still and there are some 37s at FR last I checked

Since when are 37-xxx in FR? 

I don't think any are assigned there, but they have shown up there on loan in the past (hence why a bunch have the FR checkered bumper).

Also, technically SN already had all the 33-8xx and LE all the 32-8xx if that counts ;)

I took 28-708 on the 90 this morning and it sounded horrendous. High pitched noises when accelerating/decelerating and tons of rattling on the roof. I filmed a clip from my ride.

Not tracking 30-103 32

LE 31-050 doing the AN 44

Montreal Canadians bus 39-037 is still running with its red, white and blue colours. Anybody here knows when they will take it out? I would keep it, for next year! 😁

I doubt that's gonna happen, unless the people at the STM think that Turcot is over and shunts it back to Lasalle. At least there are less airport runners these days: I saw 30-011 today on the 105 without the racks. Hopefully it's permanent (and they put back the forward-facing seats).

28-017 was on the 171 this morning, but unfortunately it's not even remotely timed well for me... first 2nd gen here at Stinson in a month.

27-021 was on the 15 and 26-022 on the 150 midday.

Finally, spotted 40-910 parked ET on Stinson earlier in the day, with inverted displays on all 3 sides, across the street from 30-025 on the 128.

On a side note, the STM has provided some updates to the other kind of electric buses (because they need to brag about their electric minibuses). They claimed that they have only received 8 out of 30 XE40s so far, and tests are still ongoing. Meanwhile for the BYDs, they expect to start testings this summer and put them in service in January 2022. The reason for the delays, according to the STM, are difficulties of exporting the buses from China due to the pandemic, and the need to make the buses conforming to the requirements. Hopefully that's the date by which those buses will exit the garage at least once.

Not sure what's wrong with the Flyers though, the STL has them running for months already and they seem to be doing well.

The main reason for the 747 being sent to Stinson was the central location of the garage. It has easy access to Highway 15 to get downtown to Lionel Groulx or Berri and easy access to the 520 via the 40 to the Airport. Where with LaSalle is closer in terms of distance, but in terms of convinience, add to the fact at the time the closures related to Turcot, it was a headache to manage. Once the REM starts, the 747 will only operate between the end of service of the REM until it starts back up again, providing the airport station is ever built.

IMO Stinson is the best garage because of the location.

30-014 was on the 100 and 30-010 was on the 128 midday, both without racks. That leaves only 006 and 008 to be verified at Stinson. Also spotted 29-810 on the 470 twice.

28-017 was on the 171 (and 213) this afternoon, unfortunately again it's not timed well (only passes eastbound at 18:30). An improperly washed 30-813 was on the 121.

AN 28-080 doing SD 30

26-075 stopped tracking a few days ago, it’s back at Anjou doing the 33 today, not tracking. 

Passed by Legendre and saw 29-824 without a plexiglass and is very dusty inside. Hasn’t been active since February according to Fleetstats.

July 14:

26-041 was parked inside CT Frontenac with the rear vent open. So it's back from LaSalle.

28-080 on the 129 and 33-807 on the 139.

I took Anjou's 27-527 on the 361-S at 26:32 (i.e. early July 15). 

The casino has an XD40 numbered 1238. It passed by Atwater metro around 27:10 signed as Nolisé / Charter. I couldn't find any information about it on the wiki and I only managed to get a blurry photo.IMG_20210714_031009_001_COVER.thumb.jpg.521fbe23e854cadd0486bb1f438a66e8.jpg

July 15:

27-519 was on the 195 at Dorval around 14:50, not tracking.

28-049 was on that 161 added trip running out of Legendre.

LaSalle's 29-147 was on the 715.

I took Frontenac's 26-035 rocket on the 354 at 27:19. It's at LaSalle again and not tracking!
