The Foundation partnered with the local transit historical society, TRAMS, to display three historic vehicles at the recent Canadian Urban Transit Association conference in Vancouver on November 8th. On display were ex BC Electric, BC Hydro and Translink buses: a 1947 Twin Coach model 41S, a 1964 GMC “New Look” model 4519 and a 1991 New Flyer Industries model D40. The Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, the Honorable Amarjeet Sohi, visited the display and sat in the driver’s seat of the Twin Coach. A former bus driver himself with Edmonton Transit, Minister Sohi noted that he knew Edmonton had some Twin Coaches in the past and has one in their historical fleet. Minister Sohi is seen speaking with Translink CEO, Kevin Desmond, in front of the display in the top right photo.
