TRANSIT MUSEUM

SOCIETY

 
While most of the Society's vehicles were manufactured in Canada, that doesn't mean they can't be used in productions that portray U.S. locales. For many years Canadian buses have been used by many U.S. cites, and many Canadian buses themselves were based on U.S. designs.

2040, 2416: These trolley buses are identical to buses used in many American cites, just after WW2 until the early 1960's: Los Angeles, Boston, Des Moines, Cincinnati, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Memphis, to name a few. In addition, most major Canadian cites operated them.

4612, 4107: The 'iconic' transit bus was operated  by virtually every city in North America from 1959 until the late 1990's

M852: Our vehicle is identical to buses used in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Syracuse, New York and even Lucerne, Switzerland! Most Fageols entered service in the late 1940's and would have been taken off the road in the mid 1960s -- replaced in many instances by the G.M.C. Fishbowl.

2805: San Francisco.

2649: Philadelphia and Seattle ran similar buses during the 80's and 90's

3334
: Seattle buses were similar but used a different windshield.

4276: Some New York area bus companies used a singe door version in the 80's and 90's: ours has two doors.

63: In a class of  its own, the styling blends in with any
mid to late 1930s era scene.
