GMC transit bus
Inside the 1971 GMC Transit bus. The controls were not what I was used to, as I had only driven newer stuff at the time. These buses sure are a lot of fun!

Go for a spin around the streets of Winnipeg on a 1960 GM New Look. We start off in the wash rack at the Fort Rouge Transit Base. Then we cross over the Provencher Bridge to the city's French Quarter (Saint Boniface) where we make a quick stop at Robin's Donuts. At the end of the trip, I get a feel for what it's like to drive a bus. Quite different from operating a streetcar. Now I know how it felt for streetcar operators to transition over to buses during the post-war era. Thanks to the MTHA for taking their time to organize this trip.
