You've probably noticed that the bus service has been a little strange in Montreal lately.
Ever since the maintenance worker strike that happened 2 months ago, bus schedules haven't been the most reliable, many buses have stickers that say "99%" or "Bientot En Greve" (On strike soon), and the buses themselves are absolutely disgusting.
Did they just stop cleaning the buses altogether?!
It's one thing when the bus is a little dirty at the end of the day because of inconsiderate passengers who leave their garbage behind. But I’m not talking about an empty bag of chips, or a newspaper left on the seat.
I'm talking about horrifying, caked-on dirt that can only accumulate after weeks of neglect. I'm honestly amazed that the buses aren't infested with bed bugs yet.
Here are some photos I took on my last 2 bus trips downtown:
