CTHF-LG1.JPG - 45188 Bytes The Canadian Transit Heritage Foundation's mission is to preserve the history and heritage of the Canadian Transit Industry, and to encourage the cooperation, knowledge and involvement of all parties to achieve this goal.

Among the items received by the Foundation through donation are a number of transit buses as noted below.

The future of any of these vehicles is not necessarily secure. Funds will have to be raised and invested to restore these vehicles and keep them in road worthy condition. Your comments or ideas about their future are most welcome. Please contact us at the Foundation.

1977 General Motors Canada T6H-4523N
The bus is a General Motors GMC-T6H-4523N model built in 1977. It is generally in good condition, however some structural repairs are now required. The smaller view shows it as it appears today. 275 was acquired from Metrobus in St. John's, Newfoundland and was leased thereafter to York Region Transit and Timmins Transit prior to being placed in storage in Timmins.
