West Vancouver Municipal Transit 912–914 were a set of three New Flyer Industries D60 buses built in 1991. These units were the first articulated buses to run with West Vancouver and they joined the Blue Bus fleet in February 2002 to improve capacity on the 257 Express. Prior to February 2002, these units were part of the Coast Mountain Bus Company fleet.

These units were repainted into the West Vancouver livery and were fitted with West Vancouver branding and logos, including the coat of arms. They were also fitted with luggage rack shelves near the front of the bus.

Just like their CMBC counterparts, these units retained their semi-suburban features, such as reading lights and American Seating 6484 seats.

In August 2009, these units were quietly withdrawn from service and replaced by three New Flyer D60LFR units from CMBC.
