By VIN or Model/Serial number. You can though search by Unit # -- this will give you a list of possible matches.
Vehicle details are contained in two databases: one, detailing the last known identity, and another listing former identities. This approach was developed in response to the system adopted by BC Electric, BC Hydro and BC Transit for fleet organization. Buses were renumbered when transferred between depots.
Vehicles are also listed by Unified Provincial Number
- a system used by the Urban Transit Authority. In the interests of data standardisation, codes are used for companies, manufacturers and bus models. You can search
for the applicable code.
What about documents, photographs & Videos?
These are cross-referenced to vehicle by VIN/Serial Number, so you should search for the vehicle first. You can also browse the collection.
What is not in the database?
Documents and photographs of a general nature. Search the Transit Museum FOLIO database for these.
