I saw 1604 at the cartier bus terminus and it looks WAY different from what it used to be. It now has the BRT-style roof fairing, the middle back roof fairing that hosted the batteries looks different from what is used to look like. It looked like the pre-2020 RTC hybrids and was actually recharging on the recharge station on the terminus. On the side of the roof fairing, it's says in french that it's propulsing with electricity, which probably means that this bus was converted to a full on electric bus. The destination sign said it was doing the route 20.

Looks really interesting, I'll have to hunt it down one of these days!

I spotted Skyport 117, a white second gen LFS on the Concordia shuttle yesterday. Does anyone know the origins of this unit? They have the other two wrapped second gens, 112 and 113 which I've been seeing around regularly.

31-199, wrapped for Visa, was on the 51 this morning, doing an added trip (westbound only).

Also, I spotted 40-113 laying over at St. Jacques/Elmhurst (westbound stop) around 7:15 signed as 90 école. It was an added trip (not within range of the published GTFS data), probably intended for Dalbé Viau high school at the western terminus.

Yesterday:

39-011 and 31-001 were on the 171 and 128 respectively, all day. 28-082 was on the 121E. 

Today:

I took 29-151 on the 171 this morning. It's also on an all day run. These 29-1xx airport runners feel like they're in much better shape than their 30 series equivalents I've taken at SN lately.

30-012 was on the 105 midday, still not tracking.

I took 28-089 on the 54 this evening. 28-090 was also on it!

The ads inside RTC's 1658 still match those that were applied there with the Bell / Festival d'été wrap in the late 2010s (2018 IIRC). This makes those ads around 3 years old.

It seems as though 1669 has a rear wrap for the upcoming November 7th municipal election (shown below). Also included is a picture of MET 1628 with the VISA wrap.

Yesterday afternoon:

28-060 did the 180-O, not tracking still.

Today afternoon:

29-844 was on the 121, not tracking. The side destination sign was off. 30-031 was deadheading on Côte-Vertu. 

Transdev sent 8587(xx)x on the 499. It still says Carignan on the side of the bus, so it was at some point assigned to CRC. Also spotted all black MCI 814009 on the same route.

Looks like the 171LE I took twice with a 28 series may has returned to its usual dullness with some 31 series today, so I took 31-806 on the 121 instead. It seems like they selectively dispatch even the artics... so far it's the oldest one I have taken on this particular run... pretty disappointing. It also smelled of exhaust inside.

On another note, the run time on the 121 seems to be exaggeratedly generous in the mornings. We still ended up arriving at Sauvé on time despite waiting around for nothing for about 2-3 minutes every few stops.

Caught 32-804 this evening on the 121, not tracking... very rough and slow ride on it. The engine shrieks a lot while accelerating, and the rear door has problems opening: it would get stuck for about 5 seconds and then slam open.

Hey guys, unfortunately I had to drive Longueuil bus 21420 on St-Hubert routes 3, 21 and 121 in pm rush yesterday but when I ran it back in to GASH, the vehicle was put aside to be shunted back to GALO along with 21903. There were a few accessibility violations last pm rush as well particularly on the 3 and 6 with 2008 amd 2009 units, the usual dispatcher is not there so obviously the replacements are not exactly on the ball when it comes to respecting ramp equipped buses. Oh well nobody died right.
