1974 GM New Looks 712-781

In 1974 Calgary Transit took delivery of 70 T6H-5307N's, all of these buses are now retired. The majority were retired in the early and mid 1990's. The last two that ran were retried in early 2003, they were 716 and 759. These buses were powered by the Detroit Diesel 6V71N and Allison VH9 transmission.
