40-208 on the 208. I’ve been waiting to see a matching number like this for a while! 

Saw 40-202 on the 202 yesterday and 40-203 on the 203 today.

26-050 was on the 405 this afternoon.

26-034 and 26-085 were on the 112.

26-055 was on the 495. The GPS broke mid route on the 17:30 WB departure, so it stopped tracking.

Now has large front exterior fleet numbers and the old Novabus logo.

Not just the logo... The whole fiberglass shell is a 2010 and less front! With the front "lip" design dropped starting on the 2011 series.

I suspect that's the front from 30-188. However, the earliest 31 series also have the "lip" design.

Spotted 29-802 on the 470 this afternoon. Later on, spotted 31-802 (with 1xx run number) and 29-810 one behind another on the same route. I took 30-807 and 30-849 on the 121 today.

28-078 was on the 177 this morning. This run consistently gets the 28 series.

Also spotted STL 0805 on the 902 this afternoon as an AV, since it's one of the accessible routes.

I took 32-801 on the 121 twice today. It has an old Faraday bell at the front.

30-847 broke down at the corner of C.-Vertu and Ste-Croix in the afternoon.

Spotted 30-007 on the 171 and 30-009 on the 16 as well.

Passed by Du Collège this morning and the metro was down when I got there. Spotted 40-198 (rear sign says 807), 31-003, 31-114 with bike racks and 40-156 loading up the passengers on the SPS, which seems to start at Du Collège instead, like the metro (40-156 arrived saying ET). Got on 28-075 on the 810.

Yesterday, 30-809 and 31-012 were parked outside Stinson.

Today. 30-010 was on the 810 in the morning, and 28-103 was on the 117. I took 30-870 on the 121 this afternoon, with a piece of laminated paper stuck between two windows with a sticker saying "Conservez votre titre validé" at the back. The ibus screens were off on it.

37-074 was on the 171. The driver side rear panel housing the brake lights has extra holes on it, looking somewhat similar to the newer natural gas units Calgary got. Following photo taken from http://www.kevinsbusrail.com/ct/novabus/2019/8395rear.jpg for illustration purposes.

I took 31-168 on the 171 this morning... and I was very disappointed to find out there was absolutely no AC in this bus. I should have taken 29-845 which was tailgating it... I took 29-825 on the 121 later.

Spotted 28-039 on the 475 in the afternoon.

Finally, the electric minibus 41-591 was at Côte-Vertu around noon.

Yesterday: I managed to take 28-009 on the 171 in the morning! It was the same run that 28-081 did during its brief visit to Stinson a few weeks ago. 30-025 was also on it. 33-831 was on the 121 that I gladly skipped.

30-881 passed by on a tow truck near Côte-Vertu station.

In the afternoon, I took 29-801 on the 121, not tracking. This one runs pretty well despite feeling somewhat rough, and the Faraday bells are pleasing to hear.

Today: I took 31-095 on the 171 in the evening, not tracking. I was hoping for anything but a 31 series... Interestingly, I haven't taken an air conditioned bus since July 30th despite taking the 121 (obviously no A/Ced buses on it) or 171 daily.
