Even though GM vehicles featured in BC Electric’s Victoria fleet, the Vancouver division for the most part standardized on Fageol and Canadian Car buses. Only in 1964, five years after its introduction to the North American market, did a ‘fishbowl’ (or 'new-look') become part of the Lower Mainland fleet. In this case, BC Hydro had succeeded BC Electric, and purchased 16 buses for its’ North Vancouver services.  4612 later served in Burnaby and Surrey, on lighter trafficked routes, due to its shorter length (35 feet.)
