Today's Sightings


Recommended Posts

Not a single 2nd gen (and conversely full of 30-2xx) on both 209 and 215 today... one of the only few times that I actually needed to take something running out of SL... anyway, I ended up at Mont-Royal metro instead and first thing I saw was 30-224 on the 97. Pretty much sums up my luck with the STM: seems like I'm just stuck to those shitty ISL9s.

Took 30-882 and 32-809 (NT) on the 121 today. The former sounds like a tractor (very choppy sound from the engine) and this thing couldn't even maintain a steady 30 km/h on Côte-Vertu...

31-218 was on the 171 for the entire day (on a Saturday...) 🤮.

Stopped briefly by Côte-Vertu today and unsurprisingly, didn't see a single 2nd gen there. Lots of "old" stuff though (yes I somehow bothered to write everything down...):

29-822: 121
30-016: 171
30-247: 64
30-251: 170
30-845: 121
31-055: 128
31-061: 128
31-084: 171
31-168: 171
31-851: 121
32-032: 171
33-809: 470
37-057: 215
40-154:177

As one may see, the 128 and 171 were almost exclusively operated by 31/32 series today. The lone 37 series I saw today was on a SL line.

As I came out of Côte-Vertu station yesterday, 39-055 with cameras instead of mirrors drove across the boulevard to do the 64.

Took 32-029 on the 124. The interior lights are of banana yellow.

31-074 was on the 121I, not tracking like 30-021 on the 175 and 30-022 on the 171.

39-059 was on the 171SN in the afternoon.

Is anybody familiar with 39-704? It was supposedly running on the 401 but was on Pierrefonds Blvd and randomly disappeared from the tracker around 11:30. Does anybody know what thats about?

Could it be one of the BYD midibus?

Oh for sure, I was just writing an edit to message because I had actually just seen it not even an hour ago in person. It was all white 0 markings but odd enough it does not look like the K7M they demonstrated originally. However that could just be because I was a little distance away. Also weren't the BYD's number as a 39-9XX bus after the LFSE?

Since these are not 40 foot buses, the STM normally reserves a different series of fleet numbers. The 7xx series could be reserved for midibuses, just as the 8xx series is for articulated buses, or 5xx for minibuses.

Ah, I've only ever noticed the specialized numbers for the electrics and articulated buses, good to know. So I wonder if they are going to go through with it seen as obviously the project was brought back.
