I wonder what it was doing there, its been in service for a couple of months now, I have a photo of it at Terminus Terrebonne, maybe went to Girardin for warrenty work?

The other MD30 number is unknown as it was still awaiting a farebox and was not visible at their garage.

My jaw dropped when I saw Ste-Julie Orion V 3532 still alive this morning on Highway 132. I also saw CITVR RTS 602 and 607 and 3018 this week, also relatively rare sightings for me. Timing is everything!!

They must of been very desprate, 3532 was not on the roster given to me by the Transdev people. 2 Units are sitting at CITSO, being farmed for parts.

RTM L'Assomption 29102 was on Route 1 This Evening

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.

Transdev Chateauguay has what looks like an MTA spec LFS demonstrator. 3061334.

There were 4 units that were rejected by the MTA, they all became demos. 1 was sold to Belleville Transit, going have to try and get the VIN to know exactly what unit.

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.
