BBC trolleys for Vancouver
BBC trolleys for Vancouver Search: --- In Transit - Vancouver@yahoogroups.com , "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...

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 ...

In 1973, American Motors decided to get into the bus business, joining GM, and Ford (not to mention less memorable companies like Checker) and received an order from Washington DC but lacked a bus model. At the time, Flyer had not delivered their "700" transit bus to any American transit system so AM General approached Flyer to have the latter build bus shells for their Washington order. O...

news
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 ...

This of course never made it to Vancouver, and the rest had the blue stripe carry o n to the front of the bus at the sme level. It was a couple of years later (mid-1994) that BCT decided to eliminate the blackout front on all the buses and the entire fleet was repainted so that the blue and white carried across the front. The inside of those doors then became a constant co mplaint with drivers co...

upf
The Unified Provincial Fleet numbering system. Early in 1975 the Bureau of Transit Services introduced a new numbering system for all transit vehicles in the various fleets in the provinces. The intent was to assign a permanent number to each unit regardless of the number actually worn by the vehicle in the system it was assigned to. In addition, the UPF number would be worn by the vehicle when it was assigned to a Small Communities system. Since 1994 the UPF number system has been abando...

The lift was fitted to the rear doors... resulting in a 3 seat- bench being placed opposite the rear exit. To make up for the lost seats, some ...
