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

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

changes to improve cooling and to try and keep stuff dry but...
victoria Victoria Numbering System
Victoria numbering system
BCER's Victoria division operated the first motor bus in the company's fleet in 1922, numbered one.
Twenty-two coaches entered service through the end of World War II, and these were numbered V1-
V22, the letter to differentiate the bus from the mainland "M" series. When the first Brill C36s arrived in
1946, they initially carried a 2 digit number in sequence with earlier coaches; in short order all Victoria
