Ex-PLUMobile exx-Sorel-Varennes 08XX La Québécoise 2nd gen all white LFS for route 323 seen this afternoon on Boul. Taschereau! I am hesitant to confirm whether it was 0859 or 0860. The top right rear of the bus had a decal stating arrêts frequents.

0859 has that decal, is the bus still in l'Inter laurentides livery ?

RTM Sud-Ouest has acquired some New/Used buses recently

3061(33)4 2014 Nova Bus LFS (Ex-MTANYC, Refused Buses)

3062 and 3063(33)4 2004 Nova Bus LFS (Ex-Coach Canada Grey Line 4971/4972) *TO BE CONFIRMED*

3062 and 3063 based on photos of both units, characteristics of the buses based off photos of the units in previous livery makes me think this. Both units were up for sale up to very recently and have disappeared from the storage lot they were located at.

 

8068 to 8071(33)1, 2011 MCI J4500s. Could possibly be units that were recently operating on STM 747 service. Units were for sale on the same website and stored at the same location of the above LFS.

3061(33)4 is a lease from Nova Bus while they wait for their own 3061.

3062 and 3063 are Ex-Coach Canada 4971 and 4972, don't know which is which.

The MCI J4500s bought from MCI (8068 to 8071) are all 2011 units. They will most likly be used on the CITHSL service which Transdev is taking over in January 2018.

All info from the garage manager at Transdev Chateauguay.

RTM Secteur Vallée-du-Richelieu still operates the NovaBus RTS.  Transdev 606-30-9 was operating on "Doubleur" 200 today, sighted on the 116 est in Beloeil at 16h15.

CITVR still has 4 RTS running as "doubleur" since the Cegep started on August 21. Those are the 602. 606, 607 and 3018. I usually see two of them every day. 

 

Rumor says that their days are numbered since the CITVR is supposed to receive some new buses very soon.

3 out of the 5 new buses have arrived according to my contact. The RTS are supposed to be retired within the next 2 weeks, once all 5 LFS are in service.

Is CITSO using Novas now on their peak route between Valleyfield and Gare Vaudreuil?  I saw an all white 2nd gen LFS going down Aut. 20 on route 99 to Valleyfield.

The cutaway is probably broken. Today 382(33)5 was operating on the 99.

Still on the CITVR side, I took a ride on the 3066-30-7 on Friday afternoon. It is funny that both the 3065 and 3066 are entirely white. They have not received their delivery yet.

It would be a good explanation but both 3059 and 3060 received their delivery 2-3 months ago... Unless it was before July 1 but still again... Why put a delivery if it's good only for 2-3 weeks?

Those buses were paid for in the old system, therefore they received the livery. Same with the new buses in Laurentides. All buses received before June 1st got the new livery, anything after will remain white.

Does anyone have a photo of the builder's plate of the BYD coach that was on trial? There was a photo posted here, but I cannot find it.
