◆  MTHA Celebrates 100 Years of Transit Buses in Winnipeg 1918-2018. Did you know ... that the story of Winnipeg's first

     buses began with a crisis in 1915? "Jitneys", the original ride share concept, were cherry picking passengers along the

     streetcar lines and challenging the Winnipeg Electric Company's (WECo) franchise and economic survival.  Did you

     know … that the first in-house built buses appeared on May 1, 1918 on the first bus route in Western Canada on

     Westminster Avenue?


     "Read all about it" as the MTHA celebrates "100 Years of Motor Buses" in Winnipeg with a great story written by our

      Historian in the latest edition of the "Switch Iron" newsletter.










◆  The next Manitoba Transit Heritage Association Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for December 3, 2018

     at 7pm (Location to be determined).

MANITOBA TRANSIT HERITAGE ASSOCIATION

Transit History & Vehicle Preservation

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.
