Or for charter work.  On the 12th there were 4 of their coaches with that paint scheme parked at the Tsawwassen Park n Ride.

They have 2 for the Pemberton runs and others for charters.

Looks like Wilson's repainted #7556 from its original American Stages black base to the white with blue CBL style stripes. So fresh! Saw it a couple nights ago and serviced it last night.

Wilson's has taken delivery of 4 2018 Prevost H3-45's. Saw all 4 today still all white. 2 fleet numbers were 9956 and 10056. Drove one of them and still has the new bus smell. 5200 km's on the hubometer. 2 of them headed out today for a trip to Banff.

Wilson got a Van Hool?? 

Not the first. They have that double decker Van Hool. A bunch of Ex Traxx Equipment and CBL equipment was sold off and some ended up on the island. Didn't know a Van Hool ended up with Wilsons.

They also have a second Van Hool double decker (#902) and I've seen 3 or 4 T2145s that still have wraps from when they were Traxx units.

I bet it's ex Traxx 870 to 874 or 880-885?

Yes, I believe you're right. Judging from the picture on the Wiki, I'd say Traxx 883 is now Wilson's 8955.

Well looks like Wilsons is looking to expand outside the lower mainland by applying to BC PTB to operate 1 daily trip Vancouver to Kelowna and Vancouver to Kamloops plus Vancouver to Whistler.  Looks like we may have some competition brewing..!  Im very surprised no one has applied for  Vancouver-Kamloops-Prince George corridor.

Has anyone noticed if Wilsons BC Connector is still operating its Vancouver to Kelowna and Kamloops schedules as you can no longer book online for them. Only Vancouver to Whistler!

This article indicates Wilson's had approval between Vancouver and Kamloops, and were planning to run 1 bus per day: https://www.kamloopsthisweek.com/news/new-bus-service-between-kamloops-and-vancouver-to-begin-on-oct-31-1.23479050

Another article also mentions this service: https://www.radionl.com/2018/11/01/17771/

Not saying that the plans haven't changed in the last few months, but those are fairly recent articles so hopefully the trips are still occurring!
