Members help preserve the past - and provide for the future.

CTHF is the only national organization dedicated to preserving and promoting our public transit heritage as reflected in our vision, “Pride and passion in Canada’s transit heritage”.

Membership brings with it many benefits as well as supporting our work. These benefits include :
  • Our exclusive quarterly 24-page Bulletin, including news, photos and historical features.
  • Members-only emails with updates and advance notice of events, at least quarterly.
  • Discounts on CTHF publications, such as the well-regarded Street Side Guide, as well as on special events.
  • Participation in virtual online meetings, with presentations of historic subjects of broad interest to members.
  • Connecting with fellow transit supporters and enthusiasts.

All of this for the individual membership fee of $40.00 annually (CAD for Canadian residents, USD for US residents). There are two ways to register and pay for your membership, either online or by mail, as described below.
You can view our membership brochure here. We look forward to having you join us!
