DONATE

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 preserving, recording, and sharing transit history.


The MTHA is a membership-based museum and registered tax charitable organization whose volunteers continue to restore and operate the largest collection of authentic vintage transit vehicles in the Province of Manitoba. We provide these historically accurate vehicles for appearances in movies and television, and together with our Transit Museum Bus bring the story of public transportation to schools and other community events for public education and enjoyment.
