    Great pic. We used it for an article about Emily Carr.

    I must say, I prefer the red paint scheme to the blue on the new trolley buses!

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

  9. Stephen Rees says:

    This paint job is at least ten years old since repaints into plain white started before Translink was set up in 1999

    This version – without black paint anywhere on the body – is my personal preference too. But this body style does look very dated now.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

    social credit colours – thus gone…

  11. Stephen Rees says:

    When I worked for BC Transit the discussion on livery was always linked to the "colour palette" of the BC Flag – which is why the liveries where all combinations of red, white, blue and yellow. Even though GVTA was not a crown, that principle seemed to live on for some time. But for reasons I could never understand the bus guys at Burnaby had a thing about matt black

  12. BCOL CCCP says:

    sea bus was once yellow – an NDP colour… BCR had almost same colours as BC TRANSIT… same flag on the side. the new colours are not as nice.

  13. SqueakyMarmot says:

    Any idea when everything (buses, SkyTrain cars) will have the blue & yellow colour scheme?

  14. Stephen Rees says:

    Since the blue and yellow has now been replaced by the grey and black almost certainly never

    By the way I saw a new variation on the express bus livery this morning (Apr 19) – the blue and yellow stripes are the same but the base is now grey instead of white. As I was driving I was unable to get a picture

    Awesome picture! I have to go copycat this style tomorrow while I still have the chance. 🙂
