Reddit usergoose_steps asked the people of Montreal which seat on the bus was their favourite, and the answers are pretty informative. 

Most of the commenters agree that the best seats are at the back corners on either the left or right side. This is for a few reasons: the bus is much warmer in the winter at the back, most of the commuter traffic is at the front of the bus, and it's a perfect seat for those of us who are socially awkward and would rather not constantly make eye contact with someone sitting across from you.

Other popular answers include the seat on the left-side on the step up in the back of the bus, meaning the second doors open to your right, offering a smooth exit when you need to get off at your stop.

Some prefer the last seat on the right-hand side when alone, and the L-shaped seats at the back of the bus when with friends.

Many people also agree that any opportunity to grab one of the single seats should be taken. 

There are many different opinions on which seat is the ultimate "best" but we can all agree there are a few golden spots on the bus that you'd never pass up. So, next time you board a bus and need to make a decision on where to sit for the duration of your commute, you now have quite a few options.

What's your favourite seat on an STM bus? Let us know!
