BC Transit 5176-5180
They were a custom designed bus for BC Hydro Transit, built to handle steep grades for routes to Simon Fraser University. They were used primarily on the 35 WESTRIDGE-SFU, 58 SFU-EDMONDS, and 145 BURNABY MOUNTAIN routes. They were also known to have been loaned to Pacific Stage Lines during summers in the late 1960s and/or early 1970s.
BC Hydro Transit fleet ownership transferred to Urban Transit Authority (UTA) and operations assumed by Metro Tranait Operating Company (MTOC) in April 1980. UTA renamed BC Transit in 1982; MTOC operations in Vancouver and Victoria moved into BC Transit in April 1985.
