The '''A-40''', known as ''Autoroute 40'' and officially named ''Autoroute Félix-Leclerc'' and ''Autoroute de la Rive-Nord'' runs on one stretch from the border of [[Ontario]] to the West and finishes just East of [[Quebec city]]. The A-40 highway continues its path into [[Ontario]] as the [[H-417 (Ontario)|H-417]], which goes towards [[Ottawa]], the provincial border in Rigaud. It also runs parallel to the St-Lawrence River on its northern bank crossing the main urban areas on [[Montreal]] Island, [[Trois-Rivières]] before finally reaching [[Quebec city]] where the highway finally merge with the National Route 138 continuing further East. In between these three main cities, you cross a long rural landscape going from farmland to a big nothing in these rural areas it could be feasible to hitch along the highway itself at some point. This gets impossible the nearer of [[Montreal]] you get.
The A-40 is part of the [[Trans-Canada Highway|Transcanadian Highway]] between [[Montreal]] and the [[Ontario|ontarian]] border.

==== In [[Montérégie]], [[Montreal Metropolitan]], [[Lanaudière]] Regions ====
In [[Montreal Metropolitan]], the A-40 runs in the northern part of the [[Montreal]] island and is known as ''Autoroute Metropolitaine'' until it reaches the St-Lawrence North Shore at the 'Charles-De-Gaulle Bridge' in Repentigny. The A-40 highway also includes two peripheral By-Pass branches meant to avoid the urban traffic of downtown [[Montreal]] and facilitate the transport towards the northern regions of [[Laurentides/Lanaudières]]. From Repentigny, the A-440 and the A-640 aim to By-Pass [[Montreal]] Island, the A-440 goes through and finishes in [[Laval]] while the A-640 follows the Northern shore before finishing in the surrounding of Oka. Both connects with the [[A-13 (Quebec)|A-13]] that runs North-South back to the main A-40 on Montreal Island and the [[A-15 (Quebec)|A-15]] which also goes further north.

=== Section Centre [[Trois-Rivières|Trois-Rivieres]] ===
==== In [[Lanaudière]] and [[Mauricie]] Regions ====
In [[Trois-Rivières]], the By-Pass project was never built. Therefore, the highway runs directly into downtown and requires that you overlap onto the [[A-55 (Quebec)|A-55]] for a few km on the western part of the city. Note that the southern junction between the A-40 and [[A-55 (Quebec)|A-55]] would be a dangerous hitching spot, the northern junction (leading to [[Montreal]] westbound) would even enable you to hitch directly on the highway viaduc itself. The distance to travel on the [[A-55 (Quebec)|A-55]] is about 4km.

=== Section East [[Greater Quebec]] Region ===
==== In [[Greater Quebec]] Region ====
In [[Quebec city]], the A-40 (known as 'Autoroute de la Capitale') act as a By-Pass north of the city while the A-440 (known as 'Boulevard Charest') goes directly into downtown. Both the A-40 and A-440 terminates in the vicinity of [[Quebec city]] crossing the path of the [[A-73 (Quebec)|A-73]] (northwards to [[Chicoutimi]] and Southwards to [[Maine]]), to continue on a journey further East, you would have to follow the National Road [[Route 138 (Quebec)|138]] toward [[Charlevoix]]. West of Quebec city, in the region of [[Portneuf]], it could be feasible to hitch along the highway itself at some point.
