Today's Sightings


Recommended Posts

Spotted a New York City MTA Nova Hybrid bus numbered 97xx (I believe those are 2021-2022) driving on the service road of highway 40 not far from Prevost. It’s such an eye catching paint job so it caught my eye! I thought the American buses tended to stay at the New York factory.

Saw 31-196, 31-071, 40-920 all on the 105, and 40-065 (4th day in a row) on the 161 LS extra.
The bus driver doing 161E run 27 was nice enough to let me take a small tour of 30-214 before he departed

Came out of the metro to find... 28-004... on the 171SN 😮!! The last thing I would ever expect to see. It seems to have replaced 37-096 mid-run. Hard to believe my eyes. Rode it and it was excellent!

28-083 was on the 171LE (also very rare nowadays!). The front sign is displaying the route as if it's a full-width sign, so it shows "171 Henri-Boura" instead... reflecting the reality that in normal circumstances, pretty much no narrow-sign buses ever make it onto the 171 (obviously, except 30-021 to 025 which at least are staying here for the moment).

39-014 was also on the 171.

31-237 was no where to be seen, so either it's back at the STM or was sent elsewhere.

40-232 and 40-219 on the 104, 40-913 was on the 105, and 40-907 ET on Autoroute 15.

The bus driver on 31-017 gave me a tour of the bus before 161E departure.

31-181 with the Guardians of the Galaxy wrap was on the 24

Also saw what looked like a Brampton Transit Nova LFS on a highway

Got 30-872 on the 121 today. Nothing wrong with this one at least.

Also got 28-005 on the 171LE home. Always an enjoyable ride with a 2nd gen!

Spotted what looks to be 40-929 or 928 (yes my eyesight isn't great at all) waiting to do the 171E at École secondaire St-Laurent, which I believe is on this run: https://gtfstools.site/run.php?trip_id=250225045. It didn't track. 40-907, 28-042 and at least 3 other 40/41 series were also waiting at the school.

Also saw 31-071 with that very brilliantly designed wrap on the 128 all day.

Got 32-802 on the 121 this morning. Decided to sit anyway and found myself sandwiched between two manspreading passengers (how I hate the perimeter seating!). As usual not a day passes without at least one of those pesky ISL9 garbage.

RTC:

- 2055 was on Métrobus 800. It's a rare 40-footer on a route usually served by Artics.

EDIT: doesn't seem very uncommon considering the next run was L1528.

Completing the RTC sightings from yesterday:

- L0703 was still running on route 1

- As previously mentioned, L1528 and 2055 were on 800, however they were also seen on 801 (though I'm not sure if 2055 was the one on 801 as I was too far to see it)

- There were other 40-footers on Métrobus routes served by Artics: L1512 (801), 1606 (800), L1611 (801), 1619 (800), 1630 (802)

- MET 1622 has a "L'équité salariale" wrap (just like 1612 and 1628), but in yellow

Seems like the 15 on weekdays is now exclusively wrapped buses 31-181 and 31-227. Both runs continue as the 358 until 29:30 and start in the mornings around 7:00 (excluding HLP to/from the garage). So if you want pics, it should be extremely easy to get them.

27-502 was on the 12 and 30-035 on the 104, both not tracking.

Spotted Coach Canda 88022 on Sherbrooke the other day, running for Gray line. Seems like it was running in Ontario previously.

Today: spotted 28-705 on the 35. I got 27-510 on the 36! No idea if it is rare to see 2nd gen on the 36 these days.

Caught 29-803 on the 121 later in the day!
