    Maybe the Superchecker can help bring back this type of bus?

    Those things sucked-the windows leaked when it rained.

    New seals on the windows would fix this problem.

    The picture is from May of 1980. The bus was built 1948. These buses were the best.

    Sadly, i have discovered that trolley #2363 was likely destroyed in 2001. Here is a picture of it in 2001....

    They could have put them on. Apparently, the bus company still has six of the type of buses that I showed in the top picture but they only use them for special events.:(

    All the buses have leaky windows. Even the New-Flyers leak not only from the windows but also from the billboards above.

    They used to have a "Free Bus" that was operated by BC Hydro Transit for shoppers downtown.

    It was the kind of bus in this picture.
