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.

◆ MTHA Celebrates 100 Years of Transit Buses in Winnipeg 1918-2018. In order to stave off competition from
independent jitney operators, who numbered 635 by September 14, 1915, the Winnipeg Electric Railway
Company constructed four of its own motor buses and introduced the first scheduled bus route on Westminster
Avenue in 1918. In 2018, there are now 635 Transit buses as the work horses of the Winnipeg Transit fleet.
