David Lam has sent along a new photo gallery of the final days of the 98 B-Line bus route, which was discontinued on September 7.

The photos are from David and George Prior, and cover the 98 B-Line along its entire route. They also capture the very last run of the 98 B-Line, at 1:07 a.m. on September 7 (see here: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Plus, here’s a photo of the last 98 B-Line not in service at Steveston and Shell, the very last stop for the line before returning to the depot.

As well, David has a sped-up video of the entire 98 B-Line route, taken through the front window of a bus. Check it out here: part 1 , part 2, part 3.

As many of you may know, David and George are behind the vast Trans-Continental transit photo archive. It was formerly named the Trans-Vancouver photo archive, and I did an interview with George and David about it last year.

Great footage, guys — and thanks for sharing it with us, Dave!

Edit: Ivan has also shared a gallery of 98 B-Line photos!

Raphael also has two very nice videos: one of the 98 B-Line and one of the 424.
