BC Transit 9905-9909 are Dennis Dart SLF buses with Plaxton Pointer 2 bodies built in 1999. They are 30ft long, are equipped with air conditioning, and have sealed double glazed bonded-type windows. 9905-9909 have two sets of doors, unlike the other two series of 30ft Darts.

In October 2007, BC Transit submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Environment for funding for a diesel engine exhaust after-treatment retrofit program which would reduce particulate matter emissions from the buses. On January 10th 2008, the Ministry of Environment stated it was able to provide funding for the project. On July 3, 2008, BC Transit issued a request for proposals on equipping 1999-2006 conventional buses with diesel exhaust catalysts (DOC) or diesel particulate filters (DPF).[1] 9901-9904 and the rest of the Darts were to receive DOCs.[2] The installation happened at some point between late 2008 to early 2010.

All units were delivered in the teal and blue livery of WAVE. By early 2010, they were moved to the former Gray Line West shops in Victoria for refurbishment. They were released from the refurbishment program in the green/blue BC Transit livery in mid-2012.
