Just to correct this post from May, the two MD30 buses for Autobus Deux-Montagnes (CIT Laurentides) are numbered 16-4 and 16-5. A photo of 16-5 at Terminus Saint-Eustache is attached.

As of late, the 35 ft Orion V ex-SJSR now running in all grey Transdev livery and seemingly based out of the Boucherville division for service on 325 Longueuil - Ste-Julie during rush hours!

exo colours are starting to make an appearance in secteur Sud-Ouest. Along with Transdev renumbers, 3062337 to 306217 for instance. 3062 was also the only unit I ever saw running with RTM logos.

The fact that it's made by Novabus which is a Quebec product should be a big hint..

exactly, no big surprise at all, just like seeing a TTC Novabus LFS around Montreal area.......................test drive is all it is about, i would be surprised if i DON'T see one instead

CITVR RTS 600 (Joseph's bus) still alive, saw it in AM rush sometime this past week.

For a bus that was supposed to be retired in November of last year, it is still going strong. I wonder why they decided to keep the RTS, they were remours they were to get artics in 2015 for Route 200, I guess that is no longer happening.,

Wow i thought all of them are gone and replaced by the Vicinity, just wondering how many of them still active in the fleet?  Thank you

I think they only have the one as spare/emergency bus... similar how Cornwall Transit 8558 is kept kicking around in their fleet. I haven't been to the yard to confirm, though.

I notice that Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu has taken delivery ot at least 3 Prevost X3-45 buses recently with the bi-fold front doors. I saw 8028256, 8054256 and 8055256 today. Does anybody know how many they received from this order?

I also noticed that CRT Lanadiere has some X3-45 buses as well. How many did they receive? Thanks for any info.

Kevin I can ask our contact at SJSR for more info.

It appears the summer board is over and dormant buses are back on the road. CITSV's lone school bus converted for transit use, 1240, is back on the road after enjoying the summer off.

CITVR apparently has one vicinity bus operating solely on local routes within Beloeil by Mail Montenach. This has been going on for about two weeks or so. We have yet to confirm the fleet number.

route 83 Beloeil-McMasterville http://www.citvr.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/CITVR_depl_Circ83_160801-_2.pdf

route 84 Beloeil http://www.citvr.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/CITVR_depl_Circ84_160801-_2.pdf

and finally route 85 Beloeil-McMasterville http://www.citvr.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/CITVR_depl_Circ85_160801-_2.pdf
