I Love Transit: 2017 Pop-Up Wrap Up!

I Love Transit 2017

You asked for it, and we answered!

Yesterday, with our friends at TravelSmart, Transit Museum Society (TRAMS), and Mobi, we hosted a pop-up event celebrating I Love Transit at the EasyPark lot on the corner of Cambie and Georgia Street in Vancouver. The sun was shining bringing transit enthusiasts young and old out to play some games, win some prizes and learn all about transit in our community outreach vehicle.

Arguably, the star of the show was the GMC TDH-4512, better known as the GM “old-look” transit bus. This old-timer was built in the United States from 1953 to 1959 with approximately 3263 of these built in total.

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

This GM “old-look” transit bus 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!
