2017 Street Side Guide is Here!

We are pleased to announce that the Foundation’s Street Side Guide 2017 Edition is now available for purchase. This publication is the definitive reference source of current fleet information for Canada’s local and regional transit systems, including all vehicle types operated.

It includes a 30 page colour section, information on vehicle manufacturers and a section with the description and location of preserved Canadian transit vehicles. First produced in 1993, the 2017 Street Side Guide represents the 10th edition of this important publication that is a valuable resource to transit systems, suppliers to the public transit industry and to enthusiasts. It has again been compiled in collaboration with the Canadian Urban Transit Association who provide base fleet information supplied by member transit systems.

The 2017 Street Side Guide is available at $30.00 for CTHF members and $35.00 for non-members, plus shipping and handling ($8.50 for Canadian orders, $8.50 for U.S.A. and $13.50 for International). Canadian order prices are in Canadian dollars; all others are in U.S. dollars.

To purchase the 2017 Street Side Guide follow this link to the CTHF e-store. Alternatively, the order form below can be completed and mailed with the appropriate payment amount to the CTHF address shown on the form.


 

CTHF and CUTA Canada 150 Campaign

 

One of the key initiatives of our Strategic Plan was a significant involvement by the Foundation in the Canada 150 celebration, with recognition of the important role of public transit in Canada’s growth and development. To support this initiative, CTHF has led a process of developing generic creative that can be used by Canadian transit systems in a number of potential formats.

We are pleased to announce that this initiative has now come to fruition. Here is a link to our Canada 150 page, where there is further information about this great news, along with the artwork images which will be used by the transit systems.

CTHF will obtain significant recognition as a result of this project with the transit systems and the public as a result of the CTHF logo appearing on all creative formats that are to be used.

Photo of the Week

 

On July 8, 2017, the Canadian Transit Heritage Foundation, held its first fan trip of the year. We initially were going to charter STO 7901, the lone surviving and preserved GM fishbowl. However due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to charter that vehicle. Instead our alternate vehicle of choice was an ex-Calgary Transit MCI Classic, more specifically 9131 formerly Calgary Transit 5034. Our first charter was a successful one, as we sold out. Even though we were not able to charter the fishbowl, a good time was had by all that attended.
