Rollsigns from British Columbia
Oakridge Garage opened in the 1940s as it was home to the Brill trolley buses when new.
Oakridge shut down around 2004 to 2005 when it turned into a site for New Flyer to use
for a pre delivery site and for Translink to scrap buses from.

Garage on July 1, 1999. What made them suburban was the
upholstered seats and reading lights. In addition, all BC Transit MCI's
all had rear doors, however the suburbans had a single width exit door
versus the double width exit doors the transit configuration buses had.

This mylar jumbo front destination sign was never used in a bus. It was designed for one of BC Transit's
1982/1983 built Flyer E901A or E902 electric trolley buses. It's a more rare version because "UBC" and
"Metrotown" were delayed extensions to the network, and "Brentwood" (the 8th exposure) was cancelled
after the sign's printing. The sign has 54 exposures. Its upper and lower sign tags are shown below.
