The Manitoba Transit Heritage Association (MTHA) is non-profit museum and registered charitable organization whose volunteers continue to restore and maintain the largest collection of authentic antique transit vehicles in the Province of Manitoba. As a charity and museum group, the MTHA engages the public in a discussion about the past, present and future of public transport celebrating our industry and community heritage.

Winnipeg’s Transit Museum on the move

The operating vintage classic bus fleet is one of the Manitoba Transit Heritage Association’s most prized collections, offering a physical, moving record of nearly one hundred years of public bus transportation in Winnipeg and Manitoba.  During the summer months, our volunteers proudly drive to and display this unique collection at various community festivals, special events, schools and senior centers. (Please note that due to the age of these vehicles our group does not offer charter service.)
