I don't know if this is a sign that Montreal will receive a few 40-xxx soon.  Here is Laval.

Are these at Nova Bus, or already in Laval?   Nice to see that they finally have tinted windows.   I see that their decals at the back now cover almost the two back windows instead of only one?  Not a fan of these decals.  I like a clean line of windows, like the Longueuil ones.

those buses have been there for weeks, will probably enter service when the covid situation ends

40-078 & 40-079 are at CT Saint-Laurent.  No more full rooftop... but they have some mad  stuff on the roof.  I don't know what it is (Big AC???)

Hi, new member here, if the second batch, STM decided to remove many stuff to reduce cost, what about the rear number display? Will it still be on the side? Rear window?

Welcome aboard! Glad to have a new member arrive!

At the moment I don't know where exactly the rear number display will be positioned. When the new batch of hybrids of arrive, we'll see what changes have been made.

@anyfong posted some photos on Facebook of 40-XXX parked at the Novabus factory, the highest being 40-130. The number display is in the same place as 40-001-061. They appear identical to the earlier ones aside from the roof (and maybe the HVAC, hard to tell since we can't really see it on 40-001-061).

What's that random vertical white strip beside the driver's window?

Hi, I’m not so sure but I guess it’s just some random tape from the factory...?

 

Does someone know the reason behind putting the route display in the corner but still keeping the rear (useless?) window?

It’s a spec choice by the agency, STMs entire fleet of Nova has the rear window, the destination sign on the top right is a new feature introduced in I believe 2016 to make it easier for passengers to see the route when buses are bumper to bumper. The windows still have the black “cutouts” for the dest sign which I can only assume is done for ease of parts, STM made good use putting their website in that space

I saw 40-173 on the boulevard St-Martin with no make up.  No full rooftop and the AC box is maybe different (because of the no full rooftop???!!!).  40-173... I mean, 40-062 have not hit the road yet they are already at 40-173.  I wonder witch CT will have the jackpot🤔

Well I've heard that there will be 300+ buses? But how on earth they’re gonna deliver then all on time with the current situation?

At worst, I'd imagine that the STM would take delivery of the completed order next year. There are plenty of examples of a series with the following year's VIN.

40-901 tracked on the 30:

BUT, I highly doubt it was in service for two reasons:

1) 26-010 and 29-062 tracked on the 10:21 and 11:50 departures of the 30-S from Henri-Bourassa respectively. 

2) It was tracking at a location with coordinates 45.52168, -73.6655, which is where CT Stinson is. 

This was almost certainly just a test.

40-098 entered service today and I spotted it on the 90 around 12:50.

40-090 was also tracking on the 110 this morning.

The 40-xxx series (all after 40-062) are piling up in the CT Saint-Laurent.  You can see them everywhere.
