NEWS & NOTICES:
MANITOBA TRANSIT HERITAGE ASSOCIATION
Celebrating Transit History
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 heritage.
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 them to schools and other community events for public education.
Support the work of the MTHA
The Manitoba Transit Heritage Association welcomes and gratefully accepts donations big and small. An official tax receipt will be issued for donated amounts of $25.00 and over.
Dusty Trails to Divided Highways
Written by Alex Regiec, Dennis Cavanagh and David A. Wyatt, Dusty Trails to Divided Highways follows the story of the intercity bus industry in Manitoba from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present.
The narrative starts with adventurous and enterprising pioneers modifying cars and trucks into early styled buses and running over rough, rugged and dusty trails.
The story later arrives at iconic company names like Greyhound, Grey Goose, and Manitoba Motor Transit, together with a host of smaller locally based firms, that emerged to dominate kilometer after kilometer of smooth asphalt four-lane divided highways covering this great province.
Modern luxurious motor coaches served bus depots and bus stops located at just about every point on the Manitoba Highway map.
For over 90 years the very buses that moved people and freight have been designed and built in Winnipeg - also known as the Motor Bus City. This book also outlines how New Flyer and Motor Coach Industries began in the Manitoba capitol and grew into the largest manufactures of urban transit buses and intercity highway coaches in North America.
Ride along as this book takes you on a journey back in time featuring photographs, maps and detailed stories as the Authors draw on their and others experience as both employees and passengers.
Enjoy the trip!
