Transit History and Vehicle Preservation


The Manitoba Transit Heritage Association, Inc. 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.


Winnipeg’s Transit Museum on the move


The Manitoba Transit Heritage Association (MTHA) is non-profit museum and registered charity whose volunteers continue to restore and maintain the largest collection of authentic antique transit vehicles in the Province of Manitoba.


The operating vintage classic bus fleet is one of the MTHA’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 and display this unique collection of ten vintage Transit vehicles at various community festivals, special events, car shows, schools and senior centers.  (Please note that due to the age of these vehicles our group cannot not offer charter service.)


The Association is also involved in researching and acquiring vintage Transit items such as tickets, passes & transfers, bus stop signage, driver uniforms and badges, and maintains an extensive collection of historical Transit photographs.
