This went mostly unnoticed, but STM is offering since Monday 7,8% more departures Green, Orange and Blue lines. Frequency before 22:30 is reduced to a theoretical maximum of 5 minutes on these three lines (I was unable to observe this Monday and Tuesday on the Orange), and the Société will defer Blue line's last departures to 00:45 in the month of March (last arrival in stations Snowdon and Saint-Michel at 01:00).

Also, line 171 is now extended to Bois-Francs station at peaks, on some departures. A bundle of new stops were inaugurated on Monday on Cavendish and Henri-Bourassa boulevards, as well as Louisbourg and Grenet streets.

Once again the yellow line is left in the dust. I realize that it is difficult to justify better than ten minute headways off peak but at least can we have our nine car trains back???

With the recent Azur deliveries, they should have enough rolling stock to go back to 9 car trains.  One possible reason is that they don't like to couple and uncouple the MR-63s.

This has rested in my phone for quite a while. It was taken at Jarry on November 26th around 6 PM.

I don't think the 11 and 97 serves Jarry. Perhaps this is Mont-Royal?

I am sure that the 11 and 97 do not serve Jarry. I am also sure that Lajeunesse does not go further south than Jean-Talon.

This is indeed Jarry station. I would not have bothered taking pictures with my phone if I had mistaken Jarry for Mont-Royal; I'd have called for help. ;)

If that were the case, then they would save themselves the trouble of coupling and decoupling between the yellow line and Garage - Atelier Beaugrand!

Do you know how often the STM does these tests at Square Victoria and Angrignon? I was going to wait at both stations to get a video

From what I have heard over the weekend, the electric bus is not able to complete a full half trip on the 36. It dies just short of the terminus in both cases, this even with the nice weather we had, so the cold is not the factor.

Wow. Then I highly doubt that they will be on time to make the spring 2017 entry into service date. Looks like we would have to wait another year.

Also, back at the Trans-Expo 2015, the LFSe made it into Palais des Congrès under its own power. Anyone knew whether it made the entire 40 km distance from the Nova Bus plant, or was it towed part-way and was driven the last kilometre?

The bus was stored at FR Garage. Note it was also plugged in for 2 days straight inside the Palais de Congres.

The LFSe bus was today leaving Angrignon Métro on a big flat bed tractor-trailer.

I'm curious as to how fast it goes, but here in our forum nobody knows.  Will it do highway, hills, Côte-des-Neiges or Rememberance Road? Or will it get stranded somewhere out of juice, and will have to be towed?

I remember the guy from Nova Bus saying they had to downgrade the power of one of the prototypes (not STM ones) as it was way too powerful when they took Camilien-Houde Rd.

Perhaps they could run it on one of the shuttles like the 767 or 77. Those routes are probably the shortest ones in the whole network, I would hope they wouldn't have to worry about the bus dying mid-route on these lines.

The problem would be getting back to garage. The quick chargers installed at both termini are not able to provide sufficient charge to the battery for it to complete 1 half trip, imagine putting it on a route like the 767 or 777 where the garage that serves it is a good length away. If the bus breaks, it can only be transported by flatbed as not to damage the electric traction engines.

The same is currently being seen with the hybrids, the buses are constantly breaking or failing mid route. In order for them to being it back to garage, they must tow it backwards and have to take off something from under the bus as to not damage the electric portion of the hybrid system.

The delivery of 37-xxx from 01 to 19 is complete.  A few of them are still not in service but it wont be long.  I think they are representing the first batch of 107 hybrid.

Wow, that was pretty fast. I saw 37-009 on the 216, 37-013 on the 128 and 37-015 was on the 17 which I got on. They have USB ports now so you can charge your phone, just like those two buses that were used as pilots for the idea on the 747 a few months ago. Also the front stop sign and the next stop screen are seamlessly integrated (so it doesn't look like an afterthought) and the bus features start/stop technology. It turns on seamlessly without any hesitation so I really like it!

It may be cool this start - stop feature, but i found it pretty dump I.M.O especially when the engine stops for 2 seconds but restart immediately because it's only a passenger that was getting down and not stopped a a red light

Instead, let the engine always run but at a slower RPM and use more the battery for starting up the bus from service stop / red light.

In the designer's mind, a shut off engine is better than an engine running at any speed. Even BMW, Mercedes and Jaguar use these systems now and they also turn off the car pretty instantaneously. But you do have a point there about the "dumb shutoffs". I wonder if there is a way to adjust the system to a longer interval before shutting off.

Also, the buses have 4 USB docks (2 ports each) with 2 docks in the front section and 2 in the rear. If any of you are looking for the 37s, Cote-Vertu Metro is the place to be to ride them.

I just saw this video (obviously not mine) from March 23 and the description says that there are signs on the charging station at Square-Victoria saying that the electric buses will enter service on March 27, that is today. Is that true?
