That strange day is that it was a bus brokedown fest on the 171

To add to that 31 123 broken down on Côte-Vertu, 31 047 was broke down at Henri-Bourassa / Lajeunesse (171E) and 30-024 was getting hooked on the towing inside Henri-Bourassa terminal

Wow, very interesting indeed. When I saw 30-107 yesterday, 30-024 was actually right behind it, both running on the 171 heading eastbound - one of them must have been quite delayed.

Spotted 29-801 on the 121 this afternoon.

Also spotted 30-238 on the 72 with tomatoes slapped on the window facing the rear door... remains of tellement Montréal ad campaign from last summer.

Converse to 30-181, spotted the rebuilt 31-166 yesterday with an old 2009-10 front and Novabus logo, on the 168.

Spotted 33-816 (not tracking) and 33-830 on the 121 today (gee). Seems like 33-830 replaced 30-830... not a good week at Legendre at all it seems like. I got 30-876 later in the day.

To add on to this, today I saw 30-814 getting towed at Côte-Vertu/Marlatt (westbound) at around 20:10.

31-058 not tracking at Crémazie(think it was on 19)

Or it could be the 100, which is actually a Stinson route. All departures on the 19 tracked: it had 28-092 (aww) and 31-048 all day.

Interesting. Looking at the side of 31-166, it does seem like there is a cut on the side panel.

I got 31-168 on the 171 this morning. It actually tracks again now. I could have also taken the not tracking 121, which to my surprise turned out to be 29-847 (I was prepared for it being something like 32-804 like always).

Got STL 0601 on the 65 towards Montmorency. 

At Montmorency:
- STL 1308 ended up on the 46, still not tracking. 
- Transdev 367(21)8 was on the 9. The destination sign wasn't working so there is a piece of paper with the route written on it. Sounds in terrible shape too (very loud bang when the doors were being opened).
- Keolis 29242 was on the 19. While it was leaving Montmorency, it almost sounds like it was exploding along the way. Also the huge sticker saying they're governed to 70 km/h is always kind of funny to see on TM units.
- Keolis 6451 (in orange exo livery) was also on the 19. Shows with its VIN 2PCH33491EC712408 on the tracker.

Got 30-842 on my way home. Côte-Vertu station is always like a circus during rush hours - today some truck decided to park in the middle of the 121 platform (in the middle of the PM rush) to dump its cargo, with the result being the 121 is forced to load/unload in the middle of the street while blocking traffic. I get the impression that people treat the 121/171 stops there more like a dépose-minute rather than a bus stop on a 24/7 reserved lane, yesterday some Uber eats stopped there to grab food.

The stickers have been modified, it's now reading VOIE RÉSERVÉE at the bottom (Speed limit on the A-25 is indeed 70 km/h when reserved lane is in operation)

For the Côte-Vertu dépose minute situation, it is basically the same thing all across the STM network, there is no enforcement, laziness, no willing to change situation. Same things with bus stops, in Montreal that reads FREE PARKING i guess

Caught 30-863 twice on Sunday, the side destination sign wasn't working.

27-020 was parked outside at Legendre yesterday, along with 28-091 and (of course) a ton of artics that probably no one would ever care about their numbers lol.

Got 30-876 on the 121 today. 37-050 was on the 171 this afternoon, it doesn't have any numbers on its rear window.
