BC Transit 641-645 were GMC TDH-4512 buses built in 1957.

They were originally delivered to the BC Electric Railway for use in their Victoria transit division. All units transferred to BC Hydro Transit in 1962. In the mid 1970s these units were renumbered and transferred to various Municipal systems in BC.

Buses owned by the Bureau of Transit Services transferred to the Urban Transit Authority upon its creation in 1979, renamed BC Transit in 1982.
