Edmonton Transit System - 1981/1982 General Motors / Brown Boveri Canada HR150G (100-199)
Sort by: Fleet Number | Newest Photo | Oldest Photo Hide Info

Trolley service in Edmonton began on September 24, 1939. The overhead wire system currently covers 127km of area, mostly downtown and southern parts of Edmonton. In the past, various trolley bus models from English Electric, Pullman, Brill, and Flyer have been used. The current HR150G models used by ETS have the body of a regular T6H-5307N model, with the electrical propulsion systems supplied by Brown Boveri Canada. One peculiarity of these buses is that they do not have license plates and the front plate that usually says "GMC" on it has been replaced with one that says "BBC". Trolleys 109 and 110 were sold to Dayton, Ohio in 1994, leaving ETS with 98 out of the 100 ever built. ETS currently has 59 out of the 98 trolleys in active service, with the others in storage. Routes 3, 5, 7, 9, 120, 133, and 135 are the only routes serviced by trolley buses.
  Trolley buses that have been scrapped: 103, 105, 106, 107, 116, 117, 118, 134, 141, 142, 153, 154, 162, 169, 171, 176, 187, 191, and 196. Units 111, 121, 124, 128, 129, 131, 133, 135, 138, 140, 148, 152, 155, 179, 183, 193, 195, and 198 have been refurbished and repainted. (information from M. Marriott)
