Do we know which routes have the most chances of getting those electric buses? Or is it any of the SN routes?

Any of the SN routes and most of the time on the rush hour for what I saw with the new schedule.  The 213 and the 485 will probably be the easiest routes to catch some of theses buses (but it could change very quickly with the STM)

I'm still looking for the first bus to have this configuration as I have noticed it a while ago.

I can keep my eye out as I have the "pleasure" of riding 40 series on a daily basis now. What's the lowest you've seen with it?

I took 40-182 on the 90-W last night. Highest one I've taken so far. The front destination sign was switching between "90 Saint Jacques" and some garbled mess (supposed to be the face covering PR message). The fare box was broken too...

40-212, 216, 217, and 220 parked at Prévost on Hymus. 

40-195 was being driven around CT SL, then parked on the Thimens side outside. 

40-132 was idling very loudly on the Guénette side of CT SL and spewing lots of smoke from the exhaust. It was then driven into the garage. 

40-136 was on the 177 and 40-181 was on the 217.

I saw 40-221 on the 420 this evening around 17:30.

———-

Given by the rate at which the 40-xxx buses are being released with 2021 being just around the corner, I was wondering if they are still going to be delivering them as 40s or if they will be transfering the remaining order as 41s? So far, no buses higher than 40-222 is active and there still several 40-1xx that are not yet on the road.

Good question, I'm not sure. From the STM budget though, it seems like we will not be getting the 51 expansion (ajout) buses that were originally expected in 2021 anymore.

2020 budget:

2021 budget:

Today, I saw 40-230 to 236 all parked at Prévost on Hymus.

Also, 40-199 at CT SL already being harvested for parts lol... /s

Umm 177 does not go anywhere near Notre-Dame

It had that number at the back of the bus! I was suprised too! It was on rue Cathedrale, then Notre-Dame towards Robert-Bourassa. Couldn't take a picture as I was driving 😐 Possibly an error by the driver??

Maybe a synchronization failure with the display console that left the rear display as 177

40-170 has been parked at Fairview Terminus overnight since Sunday December 20th. There’s a paper taped to the door but I can’t read what it says. Also, there was an STM maintenance vehicle beside it for the past two days. 

It's a temporary break room for drivers since capacity is now limited inside the real break room
