Abandoned Bus But Not Forgotten


Banf, Alberta, is where I found this old vintage bus in the driveway. I love nostalgia, and this airframe aluminum-looking bus fits the bill perfectly. Doing a little bit of research when I got home, I discovered that the bus was built by Motor Coach Industries based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Courier 85 series was produced from 1950 until 1953. The CPTDB website further indicates that only 34 of this model were produced, making this quite the collector’s item.

Although I am not quite sure why the bus has Jasper written on it, it could be that this was a bus line public transportation type vehicle. The Jasper travel destination is a city in the Rocky Mountains.
