I'm new here and I just wanna ask if anyone has seen 28-703 and 28-706? I haven't seen any of those two buses

Welcome to the Cptdb forum! Here is a website that shows you all the active buses, inactive and even retired buses. You could find so many cool features as well as the STL page! https://www.fleetstatsapp.com/
 

As you mentioned on the 25-000 thread, there is 5 active buses. If 243 is retired, we have 4 including 25-226,236 and 246!

Took 31-828 on the 121 yesterday morning. The driver tried his best to follow the schedule (as the STM understandably does not tolerate buses running early), but there was just way too much run time and we had to idle for several minutes at every single stop along the way. The next 121 caught up to us a few stops before Côte-Vertu metro.

Took 37-073 on the 171 today. It's pretty rough for a hybrid: not only are there rattling noises coming from everywhere, it is also quite jerky for a hybrid. The motor was also very loud when the bus decelerates. The driver finishing her shift was complaining to her relief about alarms that do not go away.

Happy new year to one and all. Wishing you and your families good health and prosperity!

I guess I am the first poster of 2022 for the Sightings in Quebec subforum. :)

31-034 was on the 41 with gray duct tape on the driver's vent.

28-092 was also on the 41.

27-003 was on the 49.

37-070 was on the 171 with the left turn signal stuck lit on.

32-008 was on the 55 where it got swapped out for Legendre's 31-201. The mechanic took the 32 back.

Stinson's 29-152 was on the 27. uFnx2.gif

28-089 was on the 193 this evening, got on it. Its nice having 2nd gens en masse on Legendre routes again.

Spotted STL 1308 arriving En Transit at C.-Vertu earlier today, and presumably it did the next 151 to Ste-Rose (since it didn't track). Somehow it never tracks and someone even marked it as retired on the wiki.

I updated the wiki and put 1308 back as active...

Actually, it seems that 31-201 is now a Saint-Denis bus. Some time around last Fall many buses were being shuffled around. Legendre sent some scattered 3rd gens to Saint-Denis during that time.

Tons of 31 series on the 171 this whole week: for example, on Wednesday night, the only buses on it were 31-059, 31-060 and 32-032. It seems like Stinson sends out their 37 series mostly rush hours only, while the 31/32 series do the long all-day runs... at least on the 171. One'd expect the opposite.

While onto Stinson, its oldest bus (29-805) was on the 470 today.

40-230 on the 97 as an extra from Lasalle! 

I saw that one laying over at Atwater between doing the 97 and 104 at 19:30

I took 41-008 on 144MR this afternoon. It certainly manages the hill better than the diesel buses.

I took 27-513 on the 90 around 19:30. This one also was interlining off a MR route, the 427.

A bunch of 31 series on the 171 again: 31-059, 31-070 and 31-061. 

Also spotted 30-019 and 39-015 on it for the entire day. Pretty unusual sight now there are less airport runners.

That is a lot of 31-XXX. As for the airport runners, I've been seeing them everywhere mainly En Transit somewhere around Cote-St-Luc Road, very unusual, and it was mostly the 3rd gens in the > 747 EXPRESS BUS livery

I guess my previous post wasn't all that clear: airport runners are very common to see on regular (non-747) Stinson lines (in your case, perhaps 103) but mostly in rush hours only. What is rare is to see them on all-day runs, or those in the original 747 Express Bus livery. Back in the days I took lots of what I call "retrofit" runners on the 16 (30-001 to 020; and 31-211 to 220 which I still hate to death with all my guts today).

Talking about which, I could have taken 31-212 on the 171 this evening as it was the first 171 to show up. Luckily, I got 29-854 on the 121 instead.

exo PI 342 was on the A40 Express midday. My first time seeing a minibus on it so far (usually it's served by coaches).

Finally, spotted 30-223 on the 121 midday. It didn't track on the 121 and came between two regular departures, both of which seem to be running properly.
