Vancouver Regional Transit System, formerly known as Greater Vancouver Transit System provided bus, SeaBus (ferry), and Skytrain (rail) service in the Metro Vancouver area as GVTS from 1973 until 1983 and as VRTS until taken over by SCBCTA on April 1st, 1999. In the 1970s, the system was commonly still referred to by the general public as BC Hydro Transit (or the "Hydro Buses}. In the days of MTOC operation (1980-83), the system was commonly branded as Metro Transit. From 1983 until 1999, the system was generally referred to as BC Transit.

Fleet Summary (pre-1996)

Numbering System

Prior to 1996, Vancouver Regional Transit System assigned fleet numbers based out of the garage the bus was based out of. When buses were reassigned to operate out of another garage, in most circumstances they would be renumbered to fit the new garage's numbering pattern.

Fleet numbers were assigned as follows:

  • 2000-series: Oakridge (trolley buses)
  • 3000-series: Oakridge (motor buses)
  • 4000-series: North Vancouver
  • 5000-series: New Westminster/Kensington/Burnaby
  • 7000-series: Surrey
  • 8000-series: Victoria (internal only)
  • 9000-series: Port Coquitlam

Starting in 1973, the Bureau of Transit Services (and its successor agencies, the Urban Transit Authority and BC Transit) assigned provincial fleet numbers to all transit buses operating in the province of BC. Buses operating in Vancouver did not usually wear their provincial fleet numbers, but would often be renumbered if transferred to a system outside of Greater Vancouver.

In 1996, all buses were renumbered into a "permanent" system-wide numbering system, ending the practice of renumbering buses when being transferred between garages.
