Project 365 – Day 161: Vintage Montreal City bus

June 09 2012

With a party to get to late afternoon, I decided to take it a little easy on the photo taking front today. As luck would have it, I stumbled across an old City of Montreal bus parked on Avenue des Pins and so today’s pics are limited in number and subject.

I love the paneling, rivets and detailing on these old buses.

The bus was ferrying passengers between Avenue des Pins and Little Italy for free during the day. I was hoping it would be running tomorrow as I want to check out Little Italy’s Grand Prix action and I didn’t have time to go up there today. Guess I will have to take the regular modern bus :(

Unfortunately, I have no idea what year this bus model was in service, but wish the seats today were as comfy as they look in the good old days.

Okay, have to run to a party…hope everyone is having a great weekend.
