Vancouver Regional Transit System's 1968 General Motors Diesel Division TDH-5304 buses were built for BC Hydro Transit as 3718-3737. Originally assigned to Oakridge Transit Centre and North Vancouver Transit Centre, in subsequent years many units saw transfers between garages and renumberings as noted. Ownership of units transferred to Metro Transit Operating Company in 1980, then to BC Transit in 1985.
