I have a question:

Does anyone know which SURF routes are wheelchair accessible? I noticed that SURF has a few wide-front door LFS for Zone Ouest. A smart move, for a transit authority in Quebec, I must say. :lol:

I don't think that Limocar has any accessible LFS. So the entire Centre zone would be out. As far as the West is concerned (the Paquette lines), the two lines that are LFS-only are the 8 and the 88. The other lines are sometimes run by smaller buses. But I've never noticed if all of Paquette's LFSs were accessible (actually, I've never noticed if any was!!!).

It looks like 90 is accessible. http://www.transitfan.com/gallery/v/mystic...107-03.jpg.html

Looking at my own shots of 614, it does have a front ramp! First time to have an accessible bus for Quebec contractor system!

Not quite, the 9 is a mix of RTS and LFS but unlike the STM they don't advertise which ones come when.

Paquette's LFS buses are accessible.

As for other CIT services, most have LFSes on some of their routes but don't necessarily advertise them as wheelchair accessible.

Nitpick: There are no longer any OMITs left. As a result of many transit mergers there was only one OMIT left and it's now referred to as "Ville de Sainte-Julie" as opposed to "OMIT Sainte-Julie"

I have news:

1. SURF is selling its PASSE-SOLEIL for students using SURF during the summer. You can use the full system for just $30 between June 20 to August 31. I think I'm gonna cry now... http://www.citl.amt.qc.ca/avis/affich_avis.asp?no=373

2. SURF updated its system map section, now using JPG instead of PDF. And take a look at Circuit 90 on the legend... It has a WHEELCHAIR SYMBOL!!! :lol: And bonus points for anyone who can find 930, I can't. :D

You beat me to it! :lol:

They say "etudiants des laurentides", but I am hoping they don't really have a way or bother to check this. And also that it is for all students and not just High School students. If I can get my hands on one of these: this is gonna be fuuuuuun! :D

Glad to see they decided to use JPEG, and not the long to load and zoom-into PDF. Yeah Rt.90 is definitely accessible, although I'm not too sure how useful that is since there doesn't appear to be any connection out of the city.

For a second I thought you meant STL 930 that used to serve St-Eustache.

The 930 is a Taxibus service between Gare Deux-Montagnes and Les Promenades Deux-Montagnes.

It runs Monday -Friday from 8:24 - 21:23 and Weekends and Holidays 7:19 - 18:20

It's meant to serve as a connection with the 93 bus route ONLY.

I don't know why this route exists as there's already service between Gare Deux-Montagnes and Promenades Deux-Montagnes via the 80.

The STL bus is 903 not 930! This bus still exist but don't go to Saint-Eustache mainly because of CITL 8.

You still can go to Saint-Eustache to Laval-Ouest using Taxibus T-14.

It's logical to make the 90 accessible as it is the main line for the St.Eustache hospital. However, if that is the reason for it, why not make the 89 also accessible, as it serves the Polyclinique where a lot of senior citizens go?!

Looking at the schedule of 80, the frequency is not that great. It's 30/60 minutes on Mon-Sat, and 60/120 on Sundays. Also, buses only pull into Promenade2M during midday, the rest of time people have to get off at Promenade/28e. I think they need to at least add an extra BUS between those places rather than a TAXI.

Seems I might be doing quite a bit of SURFING soon. You can purchase the card, as long as you have a valid Reduced or Intermediate fare access card! :P

Still cant believe its $30, that less than one Reduced CAM! And this is valid for almost 3X as long!

Route 8 has had an accessible W I D E - D O O R LFS for the past two days now.

Paquette also has at least one LFS with the "semi-new" headlight configuration, that is the two light redesigned model. Will be interesting to see 40' LFS with the new rear!

;) lucky you. Well, have fun SURFing, hopefully you'll have some videos to share when you come back. :lol:

Maybe SURF will get the first 40' LFS with the redesigned rear, since the NovaBus plant is in SURF territory?? I must be dreaming again. :D

Actually SURF seems to hate Nova. The QC Government had to ASK them to buy, since it is "right there".

Transit school buses anyone?

They seem to be really cool with Transifanning too, in St-Eustache at least. Apparently there is a group that comes in a white bus twice a year, and takes pictures!?! :angry:

Thank you.....well you got that Tram8, so you're good. :angry:

At least SURF's done a good job covering their school buses with that extreme livery :lol:

I can't see SURF buying something other than Nova really, why would they go with Orion or New Flyer in the first place?? I don't see them going back to school buses either, with all the low-floor accessibility regulations etc etc... <_<

Tram 8 is my dream pass. :D

It is for me as well! It's only the second time I've bought one. The last was in July of 2005. Money is only part of the problem, the other problem is making sure your work schedule doesn't interfere with afternoon rush hour!

As a side note, TRAM 5 gives you a lot of bang for your buck as well...

Actually, they just bought some brand new ones that arrived this winter, have yet to catch them.

There are no regulations whatsoever, STM is almost the only system that is accessible, that is the entire hypocrisy.

CIT Chambly-Richelieu-Carignan just (well maybe a month ago?) launched a new schedule pamphlet. It's called "Horaire du Reseau de Transport" and is very similar to the CIT Roussillon schedule booklet. It's quite nice, with lots of maps! http://www.citcrc.ca/CITExpressInfo.aspx?ID=46

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the info!

They're similar to CIT Rousillon, because they were designed by Gestrans.

Now, let's get Le Richelain (also Gestrans) to do the same :)

While, were at it, CITSO's printed schedules ( :rolleyes: ) need a makeover as well :P

(What's with the AG 700 on the front of CRC's schedules :) )
