The population of Toronto increased rapidly during this decade, and the city saw a surge in construction and new developments.

#100 Ted Wickson shot of some brand new Toronto Transit Commission General Motors Diesel Division articulated buses at Thorncliffe Park around 1982.

Ted Wickson shot of some brand new Toronto Transit Commission General Motors Diesel Division articulated buses at Thorncliffe Park around 1982.

The buses were essentially 3 buses in one, the front half a 35 foot bus, 40 foot bus behind the articulation joint, and a General Motors Classic model bus at the front. They were actually purchased for the transit agencies by the Province Of Ontario for testing to evaluate articulated buses in different cities. The Government of Ontario signed a $16.3-million contract with General Motors for 53 buses to be used in an articulated bus demonstration program. Four transit agencies participated: Hamilton Street Railway, Mississauga Transit, OC Transpo, and the Toronto Transit Commission. Of those 53, 2 have been preserved, one in the OC Transpo Fleet, and a Hamilton Street Railway bus at the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine.-
