NEWS & NOTICES:

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.


MTHA Update

The Manitoba Transit Heritage Association held its first Board meeting in 17 months on Monday, October 25 observing the current Manitoba Public Health Orders for indoor meetings. Future meetings and an Annual General Meeting have  been planned and are listed on the Events page on this website.




Museum Bus Completed

A big CONGRATULATONS goes out to MTHA volunteers James Legg and

Jim Dudych for their dedication and hard work in completing work on the

MTHA's Transit Museum Bus.


This 1979 OBI Orion 01.503 model has been completely refurbished both

inside and out featuring a stylish exterior livery matching original Winnipeg

Transit orange and cream colours.  The Interior has been rebuilt as a museum

that has large glass display cases of transit memorabillia, manequins with

vintage bus driver uniforms, wall-mounted historical picture displays and an

eight seat mini-tehatre at the back of the bus.


Funding for this project was provided by The Winnipeg Foundation.
