Ville de Mont-Tremblant

Recommended Posts

Time to bump a really old thread ...

I was in Mont-Tremblant today. Nova 780 was in service while 770 was at the garage. Classics 718, 719 and the Orion 1 722 have been retired. Groupe Galland has Classics numbered 725 to 732 to supplement the shuttle fleet.

731 is serial 2NVYT82J0R3000439 (ex STM 15-086) and 732 is serial 2NVYT82J2R3000409 (ex-STM 15-057). Photos of 731 and 732 are attached.

I was not able to get the serial numbers of 729 and 730 so I do not know their former heritage.

How are the contracts for Mont-Tremblant bus service broken down? The way I see it is the resort is one contract (operated by Groupe Galland) and the City is another contract (operated by Autobus Brunet). Is this correct?

These are indeed two separate contracts.

Mont-Tremblant agglomeration council awarded a 838 k$/yr. contract to La Québécoise in May 2017 for routes A, B and La Samaritaine, but La Québécoise asked the agglo to yield that contract to Brunet last July; the request was approved. The contract stands until 2022.

The colour-coded routes (purple, red, yellow, blue, green) are offered by the Tremblant Resort Association, the NPO responsible for the coordination of tourism around the resort on which seats an ex-officio, non-voting city councillor. I don't know the date of the end of term of the Galland contract.

Thanks for the clarification. I was thinking of splitting the wiki article for Mont-Tremblant to reflect this. One page for the Resort Association and one for the agglomeration.

Does anyone have any objections?

Spotted 2 Galland Classics on Rte-138 near Montmorency falls today heading to their final rest

All 3 remaining Classics (727, 729 and 733) were definitly removed from service in august and mid october.  If I'm correct and the STO has also retired the remaining 10 ex Calgary Transit units, then that's it for the Classic era in Quebec !!!

 

🙁

That is very sad to hear. I enjoyed riding 729 ad 733 a lot. Age has obviously gotten to them but they still sounded like the Classics we all used to ride and love pretty much. Do you know what they bought to replace these 3 buses?

They have lost the contract for the Mont-Tremblant parking shuttle, so they retired their Classic buses and don't need newer vehicles.  I don't know what company got the contract though.

Some changes up in Mont Tremblant... again.

While doing roster check ups for the Street Side Guide, I got a response from Autobus Brunet.

Autibus Brunet has informed me that they have sold the contract for the service in Mont Tremblant to... Autobus Galland...

Still waiting to hear back as if the buses Brunet purchased were included in the sale, as Galland had transferred the buses previously used on the shuttle to the parking shuttle service.

No idea on more details, no press release that I could find and no idea when Galland officially takes over the contract.

Hello,

This thread group hasnt been updated for a while. The last three Classics were retired last October. Galland now operates all Mont Tremblant bus services. The City bus contract is now with Galland, along with the buses. Classics were replaced with Nova LFS fleet No.s 7020-5 (Ex-STM). Casino buses are Nova 790 and Grande West 7155.  There are two additional Novas that havent entered service as yet. These are ex-STM buses as well. The resort service is called AVT and is operated by a fleet of GMC /Chev Bluebird and Giradin minibuses, that seat 24. These are numbered in the 1100 series. Some of the fleet numbers are 1162, 1164, 1189, 1190, 1191. Most are diesel, but a couple are gas/propane powered.

Other Nova LFSs in service are 770, 780, and 7130. The city fleet no.s are 7001, 7004 and 7011,

The service was switched to Galland in June. The buses that were operating on the TCMT service under Brunet were sold to Galland along with the contract, except for 7002, the ex MTA NY bus which is currently at the Transcobec garage in St-Jerome (A subsidiary of Brunet). 7001 became Galland 7110, which is Ex-La Quebecois 1012. 7004 became Galland 7176 which was originally a TTC bus.

You mention 7011, what type of bus would that be. When I was up in Mont-Tremblant in July, I was told only 2 buses were operating on the TCMT contract, both mentioned above. If 7011 is a Galland number, according to the way they number their buses, it would make the bus a 2001 unit. Any more details. Photos would be fantastic so we can try and track down the heritage of the bus.

Are you sure this one is 22-254, not 22-253? @Matt Demers previously mentioned that 7022 was 22-253, and there's a photo to corroborate that on Facebook.

Thanks for the information though!

In the news: Ridership has doubled in Mont-Tremblant since they made transit free, in June.  Mont-Tremblant carries 590 passengers per work day, 740 on weekends.  Quite good for such a small town!

 

20200114_montez_a_bord_TCMT-scale_max-800x425.jpg
LE 14 JANVIER 2020

La gratuité du Transport en commun de Mont-Tremblant (TCMT), en vigueur depuis le 21 juin 2019, est un succès, le nombre d’utilisateurs de ce service public a doublé durant les six derniers mois.

« Après six mois de gratuité du transport en commun, la Ville tire un bilan positif de sa décision. L’augmentation de la fréquentation parle d'elle-même, cette décision a donc incité plusieurs personnes à utiliser ce service public et a contribué à une meilleure mobilité pour nos citoyens, travailleurs, villégiateurs et touristes, » a souligné le maire Luc Brisebois.

La comparaison de la fréquentation du TCMT a été faite à partir du 1er juillet au 31 décembre des années 2018 et 2019. Dès le mois de juillet, le service a connu une augmentation de 90 % et le nombre de passagers n’a cessé d’augmenter par la suite. Elle s’est élevée jusqu’à 119 % en décembre comparativement à l’année 2018. 

Les rapports révèlent que la moyenne journalière de passagers durant la semaine est de 590 passagers et de 740 passagers durant les fins de semaine. 

Bien qu’il en coûte 250 000 $ de plus par année pour offrir la gratuité, celle-ci doit être considérée comme un investissement pour favoriser l’employabilité et l’économie locale; attirer de nouvelles familles ou encore de nouveaux commerces, bonifier l’offre touristique; aider les familles et les personnes âgées et, bien sûr, réduire l’empreinte écologique de la collectivité.

En 2020, le service de transport en commun continuera d’être bonifié avec de nouveaux arrêts et abribus. Il est également prévu de doubler la superficie de l’abribus au Centre de villégiature Tremblant.

Le transport en commun de Mont-Tremblant (TCMT) est gratuit en tout temps et pour tous. Montez à bord, c’est GRATUIT!
