Mechanics restore “Fishbowl” diesel bus to original 1964 condition

Mechanics at Coast Mountain BusLink (previously BC Transit) lovingly restored a 1964 GMC diesel bus. Because of its rounded windshield, it was known as the “fishbowl” bus.

Although the vehicle’s interior was in mint condition, the mechanics scrounged parts such as window latches from buses headed to the scrapyard.

As editor of BC Transit’s Transit Exchange newsletter, while working as Corporate Communications Manager, I wrote historical-related content such as this for many issues.
