Now, they are in service in the Coquitlam/Port Coquitlam area, carrying fare-paying passengers to ...

BBC trolleys for Vancouver
BBC trolleys for Vancouver Search: --- In Transit - , "Jim" wrote: "It's unfortunate that one simple decision made in 1981 (the decision to go with Westinghouse over Brown Boveri) resulted in the overall cost of these new trolleys (Flyer E901/2) being some five times that of their replacements." What utter bullshit. The BBC trolleys were a non - starter in Vancouver. It was not a "simple decision". BBC's decision to go prime and tie themselves up wit...

bcer British Columbia Electric Railway British Columbia Electric Railway (BCER) Transit in B.C.s three major urban areas (Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster) was introduced by companies other than the BCER. These companies eventually merged to form the Consolidated Railway & Light Co. But a tragic event in 1896 ensured that Consolidated Railway would not operate the province's transit. A river bridge in Victoria collapsed, killing 55 people. Although an inquiry would later put blame on t...

bct1 bct The history of transit in British Columbia, Canada, is really the history of one company, the British Columbia Electric Railway Ltd. It and its successor companies -it was provincialised in 1962- provide public transit throughout the province. At first, just Vancouver and Victoria, but beginning in 1972, the provincial government offered transit service to various other communities. Some cities, like Nelson, Powell River, and West Vancouver, already had municipally owned transit sy...

Comparison of Modes
Adding up to a cleaner environment Transit Exchange, July/Aug. 1998 Both trolleys and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) buses play their part in reducing pollution in the Greater Vancouver region. Along with diesel buses, they make up most of the BC Transit fleet. How do trolleys and CNG buses rate pollution wise? And how does each of these technologies compare in cost? After covering diesel buses in the February issue of Transit Exchange, we now tackle the rest of the fleet. Trolley buses: in ...

news 01/01: From a source in Victoria: Tridents were not to be put out in service New Years Eve. But, apparently, they were. Three had seats slashed on the upper deck. All have been repaired using spare bolts of cloth sent over from the UK with the buses. Overall BCT is pleased with the Tridents and will likely exercise its option for more, but this time with Alexander bodywork. Trident 9009 seems to be the odd man out... its body was built in Birmingham, England, not Portugal. It appears the ...

wac W.A.C. Bennett & B.C.E One aspect of the story of the B.C.E. which has puzzled me is this: It was the Socred government of W.A.C. Bennett that nationalized the B.C. Power Corporation, parent of the B.C.E. But, the Socreds as they became in the time I've lived in the province were right wing, free enterprise oriented. What would make them want to expropriate a private corporation? W.A.C. Bennett & B.C. Electric In researching this note, I've come to realize that W.A.C. Bennett cannot ...
