Fleet Numbering System

Like most transit operators, the RTL has their own system for numbering all vehicles.

Prior to 2000: The first 2 digits would signify the last 2 digits in an actual year (i.e.: 9-401 is a 1994 bus). The next to digits would be the order of numbering (i.e.: 9-401 is the first bus in the 1994 order).

2000 and later: In the following years, the first 3 digits would signify the first, third and forth digit in an actual year (i.e.: the 207XXs were 2007 buses). The unit order system remains the same as the previous years (i.e.: 20701 is the first bus in the 2007 order).

Note: Sometimes, the bus will be placed in one model year, even if it had arrived a year before or after (i.e.: Vehicles numbered 21201 to 21224 are units built in 2011).

C: The C prefix is placed in front of some fleet numbers to show that this particular unit has a passenger counting system (i.e. C9-407).

P (obsolete): The P prefix was used on some buses ordered in the 1990s to show that this unit had a priority signal for red lights, mainly used on the reserved lane for Chemin Chambly (i.e. P9-405).

CP9-409, a 1994 Nova Bus Classic, is the only vehicle to have received both prefixes.
