Transit on film: Defying Gravity

A TransLink articulated bus, all dolled up for its scene in Defying Gravity.

So it turns out TransLink buses have two scenes in the third episode of Defying Gravity, CTV/ABC/BBC’s new space drama! Thanks to Brandon for pointing this out.

I can’t embed the clips here, but I can direct you to CTV’s online player.

Click here to open the player loaded with episode three, “Threshold.” It will start up with clip 1 of 5: go to the 6:14 mark to catch the first bus scene.

There, Laura Harris and Ron Livingston have a talk about their relationship on one of our new articulated buses with the fuzzy seats! Also, it seems the green screen above was just to show extremely fast scenery going by.

For the second scene, go to clip 4 of 5 and you’ll see a TransLink bus pick up Laura Harris at around 1:52. You can watch the first two minutes for the full context of the scene if you like. But it’s very important to note that you can see the Buzzer box in the bus for like half a second! Woo!

    Speaking of the new show, I was on iTunes and saw 3 episodes of Defying Gravity available for free!
    Make sure they’re in HD so it’s more worth the deal!
    Just thought I’d pass it along!

    PS: I’ll definitely look for the Buzzer box!

    Hahaha I find it funny how fast the bus is moving. I wish the B-Line actually flew down Broadway that quickly!

    Aww… no Buzzer boxes :(
