Spotted 38-066 on the 171 this evening. Quite rare to see anything that's not a 31 or 37 on Stinson runs these days!

I took 29-840 on the 121 this evening.

Yeah!!!  The 31-xxx are annoying.  I hate them!!

28-114 was on the 470 p.m rush yesterday, did at least two trips.

Also spotted earlier this week RTC L1501 deadheading, yes Limited use hybrids !

I've also spotted L1503 and (if I'm not mistaken) L1504. Also, I haven't spotted L1001 (the first ever hybrid) in a while, was it retired?

Recently rebuilt from an accident 31-166 was on the 24 this afternoon. Both sides have the fleet number in that newer cartoony STM font and big numbers in the front.

27-016 was on the 187.

28-079 was on the 186 with a second Priorite sign affixed on the rear window just like 26-063. uFnx2.gif

Mont Royal's 36-020 was on the 141 with the Frontenac bumper.

Seems like the plan is for Anjou to get the entire 36 series, so that should be more common to see there.

If you're a fan of those ISL9 3rd gens (which I'm decidedly not), here's a list of not tracking things that's going to thrill you:
33-843 on the 121;
31-804 on the 121;
31-060 on the 171.

In addition, 30-011 was on the 128, and 29-855 was on the 121, also not tracking. 29-802 was on the 121 all day: it's finally back from Stinson, which seems to have swapped a good amount of artics with Legendre lately.

Skyport 420-204 was doing the Concordia shuttle today. It has luggage racks, so it's probably meant for use on their airport contracts.

Also, I noticed on FleetStats that STL 1604 was reactivated. It was a test bus being converted to a plug in hybrid, and it hasn't been active for years. I think 1603 was also part of this project.

Here's an article with a photo from 2017:

Something to keep an eye out for.

I took 30-241 on the 121ISL this evening... the first thing that showed up when I came out at Sauvé and this will be the only time I'll ever take this departure. I should have just sticked to the next regular departure 5 min later (some 31-8xx), since it was incredibly jerky, slow and crowded. The artic ended up catching up when I got off and my back hurts... never happens with even the 40 series with plastic seats.

31-804 is on the 121 again.

I took 31-844 this morning on the 121. 30-874 was on the other side, not tracking. Then I came out at Sherbrooke to see 32-030 arriving on the 144SN (it wasn't tracking either, so I was hoping for some 30-0xx ex-airport runners, and yes that's the only 144 trip that's timed well for me)... so I switched to 38-100 on the 24. Still not exactly used to see these being FR units now. The 144 was detoured onto Sherbrooke until Sainte-Famille.

I took 30-843 on the 121 this evening. It sounds almost exactly like the 33-8xx (due to the Nova eCooling fitted - even has the high pitched fan noise when it's stopped) minus the unusually faint "musical" Ecomat gear shift sound.

Spotted 30-016 on the 121E and 30-017 on the 213 yesterday afternoon, along with 28-095 and 065 on the 121E.

Today: I took 31-830 on the 121 in the morning (with many Laurenhill students), not tracking. Managed to grab a nice ride on 28-707 on the 107 later!

30-008 was on the 171-O in the morning. There's now a small dash in the driver side fleet number and no longer has the luggage rack. So now 30-006 to 015 (and 002 to 004) have all been confirmed, there's only 30-001 and 005 yet to be verified.

I took 30-001 about two weeks ago and it did not have a luggage rack.
