There’s something you don’t see every day

This bus, recently spotted along St. Denis, belongs to the Quebec Public Transit Heritage Foundation (Fondation l’héritage du transport en commun du Québec), which restores retired public transit buses. If you see a bus of this model (the so-called “New Look” or “fishbowl” buses), chances are it belongs to that group.

    Does this mean that instead of these old buses (and decommissioned school buses, of course) being the norm for public transit in Central America, we’re going to start seeing low-floor NovaBuses there instead? Way to make Tegucigalpa MORE dangerous.

    When I lived in Fredericton, I used to love that about 20% of Fredericton Transit’s fleet was made up of these exact same buses.

    Not here. The STM retired the last one in 2002. Most other local transit agencies have since followed suit, including the STL and RTL.

    The only place you’re likely to find a non-museum version is in Cuba, where many ex-STM buses are still running.
