40-156 at Fairview doing the 207, after the 215. Notice the light on the mirror. Also saw 40-038 on the 216, a strange sighting.

The 216 has a few extras from Lasalle so maybe 40-038 was doing a Lasalle extra?

Seems like all the buses above 40-150 that are active are doing SL routes so far. Maybe that garage is the next one to receive the new batch of the 40 series?

For now the new 40-1XX are assigned to Saint-Laurent. Although at the beginning Saint-Laurent had a few 40-series hybrids but sent them to LaSalle. Also Legendre is supposed to receive hybrids although they're not ready to receive them just yet. The Legendre garage expansion is also scheduled to be completed by the end of the year so maybe some 40-XXX will be transferred from both LaSalle and Saint-Laurent to Legendre.

Saw 40-156 on the 70. Here's a (blurry) picture of it:

There are still lots of those hybrids parked inside Stinson 2, I saw 40-171 inside through the glass door this evening. That facility is basically a storage for them now... 

Also, 40-905 was parked inside Stinson near the door, behind 40-903 and 40-901.

Where exactly is Stinson 2, it was never really clear.

Nice to know! Do you happen to know if there are more than one charger for these buses? One day I saw 40-901 returning to the garage and 40-903 was parked inside near the door, the latter had to be driven away so that the former can enter the garage and park itself: it won't be very efficient once we have all 30 buses.

It's the facility at 380 Stinson, near the corner of Stinson and Hodge. Here's the facility on Google Maps: https://www.google.ca/maps/@45.5207683,-73.6616814,3a,84.5y,208.97h,81.81t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sEMEUtNd9Eh882pm9fr8yEg!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DEMEUtNd9Eh882pm9fr8yEg%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dsearch.revgeo_and_fetch.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D96%26h%3D64%26yaw%3D176.67516%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i16384!8i8192

You can see what's parked inside through the windows on the garage doors.

Okay, so they are using the old garage where they first installed the iBus system. Init sign is on the building in google, they are the ones that make the iBus programing.

They are testing new chargers during the day.  So thats why they can have more than one bus in the street now.
