Hey guys, on Tuesday I'll be going to Trans-Expo 2009 here at Place Bonaventure in Montreal. Of course I'll bring along my camera and I'll be taking photos. It's part of the CUTA fall conference.

 

See ya later. :(

Maybe one day we'll see them on streets in my province of Quebec. From what I was told, New Flyer is trying to get approval from the Quebec government to break into the transit market here, so that way TAs are going to have more choice the only NovaBUS.

Another NovaBUS, this time it's the LFS HEV Translink unit 9484:

A little more mileage than BCT 9370.

These LFSs really look good and their seats, at least those on 9370 are MUCH more comfortable than the STM's and they look better too. ;)

Thanks for the compliments. Yes, it would have been nice if we could have seen the MCI's engine. But, I can probably arrange something similar, not a demo, but I'm going to pull some strings.
