BC Transit 6380-6381
Ownership 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.
Equipped with VS2-6 transmission for highway speed operation, these units did regular dual duty as summer sightseeing buses as well as transit use throughout the year. For many years the rear door was removed in the summer season and extra seats installed for the Royal Blue Line tour duty.
Units transferred to Municipal systems prior to 1996 were renumbered with their provincial fleet numbers; units transferred in 1996 and beyond retained their Victoria fleet number
Both units were built with only a single door; they were retrofitted with rear doors by 1980.
