Recommended Posts

This was the starting roster of TriMet (Portland, OR) in 1971, as taken from the Motor Coach Age magazine from that year.

501-505 - 1960 GMC TDH4517

506-520 - 1963 GMC TDH4519

521-540 - 1964 GMC TDH4519

541-555 - 1965 GMC TDH4519

556-575 - 1966 GMC TDH4519

576-600 - 1971 GMC T8H5305A

601-650 - 1971 Flxible 111DD-D5-1

On order:

300-434 - 1972 Flxible 111DC-D06-1

All buses built before 1971 were previously operated by Rose City Transit.

If anyone has any information as to all the buses TriMet had acquired from the "Blue Bus Lines" collective of local transit services serving cities outside of Portland (Intercity Buses, Portland Stages, Estacada-Molalla Stages, and Tualatin Valley Buses), as well as all those former Portland Traction Company buses Rose City Transit had operated between 1956-69, please reply to this topic.

Most of these acquired buses were deemed unfit for post-acquisition service after TriMet's takeover of this collective on Sept. 6, 1970.

Thank you,

Ben Edge
