South Shore CIT's need lots of new drivers, as suggested by some local newspaper ads in Saint-Bruno and Saint-Basile.  If you have a class 2 F license and looking for a transit job with an opportunity to drive a wide variety of vehicles in one fleet (CITVR still has some RTS's, drive them before they're gone this summer!), now is a good time.

They may be looking for drivers, but CITVR won't hire you unless you live in the imediate area. I know a couple of people who have applied and been told they can only get the job if they move within a certain distance since they are Part-Time and On Call.

It is not an issue of being part-time or on-call.  It is an issue of drivers working split-shifts and the difficulty getting rest between AM and PM shifts. It may not be practical to work for CITVR if you live in Montreal, but Boucherville, Ste. Julie, Saint-Basile and Saint-Bruno (where the municipal paper had CITVR ads) are reasonably close (25 minutes or less).  None are in the immediate area. I live near Beloeil but chose part-time work at a CIT with coaches, which means a 35-minute drive.  Some of my colleagues have a similar commute.

CITVR needs plenty of on-call and replacement drivers.  I did my reserve-bus lane training with a CITVR RTS on January 20th.

Tell your contacts to try again, if not, the other CIT's (Boucherville, Roussillon) are still looking for Class 1 and 2F drivers and might take them in.  CV's can be brought directly to the garage of their choice.

URBIS has officially retired their remaining Orion Vs, no clue if any more will end up in the Repentigny Fleet.

URBIS also officially no longer has anymore Cutaways in their Fleet, they have been replaced Nova LFS and New Flyer MD30s according to official roster I received for the Street Side Guide.

Spotted CITSO/Transdev 8063-33-6 with another fleet number 6076 beside it... Anyone know the reason / history of this coach? It's not listed on wiki.

That could be an old Auger or old Viens/Veolia number. Auger was acquired by Transdev-Limocar around 2009-2010.

Neither Auger Métropolitan nor Veolia used number schemes like that, and I think this is a 2016 model...

No, this was a demo marketed to CITs in a transit configurations with the sliding bi-fold doors. I guess like the MTA specs, just a little different
