Categories: · Alberta Transit Agencies · Defunct Alberta transit agencies A Beverly resident blogged on a neighborhood site: 'Beverly Bus Lines begins service to Edmonton in 1936 with 20 weekday trips. 25 on Saturdays, and 14 on Sundays. Fares were 25 cents for 4 tickets. 1961, Edmonton amalgamated with Beverly and bought all 9 Brills at a cost of $15,000." Personally I was only aware of two C-36 Brills owned by Beverly Bus Lines Ltd., both purchased used from Calgary. After amalgamation, these white and blue buses continued to be used by ETS to run the routes 26 North and South, for about a year, until replaced by GM Fishbowls on the renumbered B1, B2, and B3. The two Brills were last seen in Windsor Auto Parts, 76 Ave. and 50 St., together with some Diamond Bus Lines Twins that had been bought from Winnipeg. I understand Nick Mazatiuk founded Beverly Bus Lines; he was later to found Diamond Bus Lines.
