The RTCS wiki page is hopelessly out of date. It is hoped that a wiki editor can do a cleanup. As an example, TUM-14 is still marked as active. Also, there is no evidence of TUM-18 (ex-RTL C9-802). It deserves to be said that this is the only ex-RTL bus currently active in Shawinigan. Also, it is worth noting that the bus is still running with the RTL logo! There is also an ex-Coach Canada bus there (49XX series from the ADMTL employees / econoparc shuttles) exx-NYU as made evident by the speedometer gauge in MPH.

I made the requested changes to the wiki, except for the ex-Coach Can as some infos are missing. If anyone has an ex-Coach Can fleet number to provide, please post it here.

TUM-17 is a 2004 NovaBus LFS that is ex-Autocar des Chutes 04-69, exx-Coach Canada 4976, new to Coach USA (NJ). It was acquired in 2016.

One more change ... TUM-16 is a 1996 NovaBus LFS that is ex-Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC) 9632, acquired 2016. I do not know if it is still active or not.

Thanks for the corrections, and according to driver Simon, TUM-16 is indeed active.

4976 would have been née Transport of Rockland, according to the Wiki. Are we speaking of the same vehicle?

It looks as if Saguenay, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières will be adopting the Multi card based on the technology developed by the STO.  Trois-Rivière's card has not been rolled out yet, but Saguenay's and Sherbrooke's have:

https://www.sts.qc.ca/affichage.php?id=124

The STTR's Multi Card now has a name: La carte Cité

https://sttr.qc.ca/tarifs-et-depositaires/carte-cite/

Quote

La carte Cité est la nouvelle carte à puce de la Société de transport de Trois-Rivières. De façon simple et rapide, elle vous permettra de vous procurer votre titre de transport mensuel ou d’en faire un PME (porte-monnaie électronique). La nouvelle carte Cité remplacera l’inter-passe mensuel cartonné actuel qui ne sera plus disponible à partir du 2 octobre 2018. La carte Cité permettra de réduire un nombre considérable de papier, donc plus écologique!

Votre carte CITÉ est gratuite jusqu’au 1e octobre 2018 inclusivement à l’achat d’un titre mensuel ou d’un PME d’une valeur de plus de 10$.

I checked the Fleur-de-Lys website and their current fleet appears to consist of cutaways and coaches.  I really hope Shawinigan doesn't get a cutaway-only bus fleet. :(

Nope, it's specified in the tender that then want intermediate (Vicinity, Ez-rider, Alexander Dennis) or full size (LFS / Xclisor)
