1982 Flyer D901A 473-482

In 1982, Calgary Transit took delivery of 10 D901A's, these buses were similar to the D900's with a few minor changes in appearence and a much higher exterior noise level then any Detroit Diesel 6V71N/ Allison V730 drivetrain. These buses came with Transdot destination signs and power steering. All have been retired now with the last ones gone in October 2001. By mid 2002 all had been sent to the scrapyard.
