Exciting news – we have more details to share about the upcoming I Love Transit Week!

Look for the vintage bus on August 25 in downtown Vancouver as we kick off our sixth annual celebration.

The GMC TDH-4512, better known as the GM “old-look” transit bus, was built in the United States from 1953 to 1959  and in total, about 3263 of these were built.

This particular one, numbered 730, served in both Victoria and Powell River before being brought over to the Lower Mainland during Expo 86.

It was also used during BC Transit’s centennial celebration in 1990.

The Transit Museum Society (TRAMS) has restored the exterior of the vehicle and converted the interior into a mobile theatre and historic display vehicle!

Come check it out on Monday, August 25, 2014 at the EasyPark lot at the corner of Cambie Street and Georgia Street from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free pins, photo opportunities and more!
