My deviantART: http://NovaBUSFan.deviantART.com ---- Finally got to ride this demo that just came in from a test period in Quebec City with the RTC. Very cool ride and a good preview of the RTL's new buses next year.
33-999 is the demo built to mimic the powertrain specifications of next year's first batch of hybrid buses in all 9 Quebec major transit authorities (not to mention air conditioning). Naturally it began with the STM and earned its fleet number, though interior wise is identical to the RTL's 212XXs and 213XXs. This bus should go through the entire province by the time the first of the 475 strong order (2014-2016) begins flowing into transit garages. Enjoy the video!
