BC Transit 6081-6088
BC Transit 6081-6088 were GMDD TDH-4519 "New Look" buses built in 1965 for BC Hydro Transitas 754-761. All were transferred the Urban Transit Authority in April 1980, renamed BC Transit in 1982. While officially renumbered into the 8000 series in 1975, buses operating in Victoria typically only displayed the last 3 digits.
Under the Unified Provincial Fleet (UPF) system, they were assigned fleet numbers 6080-6088, and were renumbered to their UPF fleet number when transferred to systems outside Victoria. The original BC Hydro fleet numbers were not in sequence with the serial numbers; they were reorganized to follow the serial numbers when renumbered to the UPF fleet numbers.
BC Hydro Transit fleet ownership transferred to Urban Transit Authority (UTA) and operations assumed by Metro Transit 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

- All buses in the Victoria fleet were given names honouring the countries participating in the 1994 Commonwealth Games. These names (ie. Spirit of Canada) were displayed on the right side of the windshield of each bus.
