West Coast Express 101–108 are 8 Bombardier BiLevel cab cars built in 1995. These cars were originally ordered by BC Transit, but were handed over to TransLink in 1999. They retained their unique purple livery as TransLink had no plans on repainting the cars for livery conformity, despite being considered a "BC Transit" livery.

These cars were delivered for the launch of West Coast Express.


All cars are equipped with power outlets, work tables, arm rests, drink holders, air conditioning, washrooms, and bike racks. All cars are accessible.

The seating capacity is 136, or 142 without any bicycles or wheelchairs. There is a standing capacity of 365 and accommodations for 2 wheelchairs and 2 bicycles per car. The end of the cars are equipped with a driving cab for use during inbound trips.


Cars are all wheelchair accessible and have washrooms on board. The passenger capacity is 142, or 136 with bicycles and wheelchairs.
