Canadian Transit Heritage Foundation:
The Canadian Transit Heritage Foundation is planning some fan trips for the year 2017. At both of these fan trips, the CTHF will be selling the new 2017 edition of "The Street Side Guide" which should be ready by early June.
Saturday, July 8 - In conjunction with the Canada 150 celebrations in the Nation's Capital the weekend before, the CTHF will charter STO 7901 (GMC New Look) for a five hour trip.
Fall Weekend in New Brunswick:
Saturday, September 16 - The CTHF will be chartering a Classic from Saint John Transit for a five hour charter.
Sunday, September 17 - The CTHF will be chartering an RTS from Codiac Transpo in Moncton, NB.
The high floor bus is definitely becoming rare in Canada and these two events will allow CTHF members to visit 2 additional provinces. Our previous 4 events have been held in 4 different provinces (ON, NS, AB, MB).
Keep checking back here for updates as they develop. We look forward to seeing you at one or both of these events.
