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 not-for-profit museum and registered charity whose volunteers continue to restore and maintain the largest collection of authentic antique transit vehicles in the Province of Manitoba in roadworthy condition.

Throughout the year, our volunteers proudly display this unique vehicle collection at community festivals and car shows, and conduct presentations at schools and senior centers providing people of all ages an opportunity to learn about and celebrate the public transit industry. Our Association  is also involved in researching and acquiring public transit memorabilia such as tickets, passes, transfers, bus stop signs, driver uniforms & badges, and maintains a large collection of historical public transit photographs.


(Not For Hire: Due to the age of these vehicles our group cannot offer charter service.)
