BC Transit 711-720 were GMC TDH-4801 buses built in 1954.

They were originally delivered to Los Angeles Transit Lines, and were purchased second hand by the Bureau of Transit Services c.1973, and operated in a number of BC systems as noted.

Buses owned by the Bureau of Transit Services transferred to the Urban Transit Authority upon its creation in 1979, renamed BC Transit in 1982.

BC Hydro Transit fleet ownership transferred to Urban Transit Authority (UTA) and operations assumed by Metro Transit Operating Company (MTOC) in April 1980. UTA renamed BC Transit in 1982; MTOC operations in Vancouver and Victoria moved into BC Transit in April 1985
