BC Transit 6199-6203 were General Motors Diesel Division TDH-4519 "New Look" buses built in 1972 for BC Hydro Transit as 785-786 and 787(1)-789(1).

Ownership of all units was transferred to the Urban Transit Authority upon its in 1980, renamed BC Transit in 1982.

The Victoria fleet was officially renumbered into the 8000 series in 1975, but these numbers only appeared on internal system rosters. The active Victoria fleet continued to display three digit numbers until the 1990s.

Units to Municipal systems prior to 1996 were renumbered with their provincial fleet numbers; units transferred in 1996 and beyond retained their Victoria fleet number.
