Bus wrap/advertisement sightings


Recommended Posts

I've been wanting to do this for sometime, as I enjoy bus wraps very much.. :) I've been following from the beginning the various bus advertisements in Montreal since the mid 80's when the STCUM started to fully paint some of its GM New Looks. This thread will focus on what buses the STCUM has painted up in the past and which one's are currently being wrapped these days. The first post will be an all-time list of fully painted buses from past and also the new technology of fully vinyl wrapping buses. Note that top ads will not be added on this list. The bus had to or has to have one side wrapped/painted. So, if you remember any GM New Looks, GM/MCI/Novabus Classics or Novabus LFS's that ran for the STCUM or STM that were painted or wrapped, please post which one's and they will get added onto the list.

This thread will also serve as a sightings thread for current STM wraps. So, if you see a new wrap, please post it!

14-046 was wrapped for Telus Spin '05.

22-279 was wrapped on all 4 sides actually. :P

Added.

As for the Telus Spin 05, that's what I had it down for, but I didn't specify 'Spin 05' next to it. I made the change now. You' can also notice that there were two other classics that had that wrap, but in a white base color and not black like 14-046 was. Matt do you remember the Telus 'Ma Click' Bell wraps with the fish on them? There was 3 of them. I have 26-080 on the list as one of them, but do you remember the other 2? Can you remember more wraps over the last few years? I recall an Energizer full wrap LFS a few years ago and some wrapped for Bell Sympatico high speed internet that were all blue with red flames over the wheels on all sides. You know the numbers of those?

The Sympatico bus was 18-034. My friend remembers that one very well.

As for the Telus Ma Clik, let me try to look through my pictures. Can you give me an approximate time of year you remember they were on?

24-001: CFTM (TVA) (fully painted)

I remember seeing this bus on the 20 Chateauneuf or 85 Hochelaga in the late 80's! It even had light ropes on the sides which made it easy to spot from far. I completely forgot about this bus until now. Is there a picture of it somewhere?

Added the Symatico bus.

As for the Telus "ma click' buses, it was during the summer of 2007. BTW, what was the other all black Sieux d'Argues wine bus? One was 27-018 and the other was it 26-076?

Umm I don't think it was ropes though. I'll have to check it when I get home. I got pictures of it from all sides on route 131 de L'Assomption.

Other Sieux d'Argues bus was 26-077. It was wrapped for it a week or two after 27-018 was.

I believe the other Telus Ma Clik buses werew 26-078 and 26-081.

You should post your "BIG" list in the "General Exterior Ads" thread, where me and newflyerinvero are the main contributers. You will also see my list of HSR ads/wraps and maybe some pictures of them, and newer ones if requested. :D

I'd love to see other system ads in that thread! (So does Nick). :lol:

As per Matt's sighting's, removing blue highlight on all current Telus wraps, as 26-071 was spotted without it yesterday. This most likely means the others are unwrapped or getting unwrapped as we speak.

BTW, can anyone confirm if all the LFS's highlighted in blue on the master list still carry the rear Chasse Toyota wrap?

Some additions:

-24-253 - Chasse Toyota rear wrap.

-27-022 & 024 have been unwrapped.

-So have 24-254, 26-073, and 26-078.

-26-067 still has the Mexx wrap. Saw it today on the 15.

Mark, the blue highlighted buses means that their currently in service with the wrap. If the bus number is not in blue on the master list, it means the bus is not currently wrapped and is now a thing of the past. Those buses you mentioned are not highlighted in blue, so I have already maked them off that they no longer have wraps.

Ah, I understand. My apologies, Steve.

As of last night, 26-067 no longer sports the Mexx wrap.

Thanks, I will update the list. I"m sure 25-239 with Pizza Pizza wrap is a goner as well. It hasn't been seen in almost a month now. Come to think about it, I don't think there are any wraps in town right now except for the rear Chasse Toyota ones.

I hope not becuase I *still* haven't been able to get pictures of it! :)
