BC Electric Railway/BC Hydro Transit 2201-2288 were CC&F/Brill T-48 trolley buses built in late 1949. In 1954 this group was retrofitted with 2 + 1 seating (single seats on Left side of bus) to increase standee capacity. They were eventually converted back to original 2 + 2 configuration.

All units were transferred to BC Hydro Transit in 1962. They were retired between 1982 and 1984, upon delivery of the Flyer E901A/E902 trolley buses.
