MANITOBA TRANSIT HERITAGE ASSOCIATION

The Manitoba Transit Heritage Association, Inc. (MTHA) was established on July 21, 1989 by a group of dedicated Winnipeg Transit employees and retirees interested in collecting and preserving records, memorabilia and vehicles related to the City of Winnipeg's public transit service. The MTHA is a membership-based, not-for-profit museum and registered charity whose volunteers continue to restore and maintain the largest collection of authentic vintage transit vehicles in the Province of Manitoba in roadworthy condition. The Association also provides its historically accurate vehicles for appearances in movies and television, and for public display at community events, parades and exhibitions.
