I spotted a 40-000 series bus on the 55 Saint Laurent route heading north at Saint Laurent/Rene Lesvesque, I don’t remember if it was 40-001 or a different bus 

Likely 40-005, as someone on Facebook mentioned seeing it on the 55.

It probably doesn't have a tracker yet. Almost definitely not running out of Lasalle like 40-001, since they don't do any extras on the 55.

I was gonna say either 40-005 or 40-001, I only saw a passing glance of it as my bus was moving

I caught 40-030 on the 105 this evening. The new card reader looked like it was on but maybe not programmed yet. Another thing that I noticed about these new buses is that they tend to rev up on idle.

Could be because ATUQ no longer options a dedicated fast idle switch

RTL lost theirs part way through the 2018 order

Caught 40-005 on the 35 midday. A couple of observations...

1- The windows are tinted, in the style of 37-002. But I don't know if it's the same shade or not.

2- The rear doors are Vapor (pneumatic?) push-bar type, like the one on the diesel buses, but with a thinner separation between the upper and lower glass panes. The bar is all yellow (I think it's all yellow on the 36-90X as well), and instructions on how to open the door are taped on the door between the bars. I personally think it's less intuitive than buttons, but if it's more reliable, tant mieux.

3- The new card reader was powered, and was displaying a blue screen. A green indicator light is also on. 

4- The emergency exit instructions are not taped on the windows, but it's a metal sheet screwed on the wall. I guess it's more durable this way.

5- The destination sign looks indeed different... also might not interest anybody but plate is AE41801.

Here's a picture of that bus I took earlier today on the 35.
