GM New Looks

Welcome to the GMC photo gallery. Calgary Transit operates 201 GMC Fishbowls (July 2004), also known as New Looks or Model T6H-5307N. These buses are easily found on weekdays, however they are not used during weekends. Calgary Transit has a rebuild program for these type of buses. Earlier rebuilds were done in Ontario but now most rebuilds are done by CT at their own Spring Gardens heavy repair shop. The rebuild includes drivetrain, floor, route schedule holder, Recaro driver seat, power steering and being painted in the current white base 3 stripe paint scheme. A rebuilt GM New Look has 50 seats rather than 51 because of the addition of power steering. However the rebuild program for these buses appears to have come to an end in early 2004 as CT actively moved on to start rebuilding MCI Classics. 1977 T6H-5307N's are currently the oldest buses in active service for Calgary Transit.

The majority of the photos in this section are taken by me (Kevin Lo). There are a few that were donated by Peter McLaughlin. Please do not re-use any of these photos without my permission or Peter McLauglin's permission. Thank You
