At our Annual General Meeting on June 4, 2022, the Canadian Transit Heritage Foundation welcomed 2 new directors.
Dave Reage is a lifelong transit enthusiast who has had the opportunity to turn a passion into a career. He has worked in the transit industry for 17 years, currently serving as the Executive Director for Halifax Transit, an organization he has worked for over the past 15 years. Dave is also very involved in the Canadian Urban Transit Association currently serving as the Vice-Chair, Finance.
His passion for transit started early in life while living in Mississauga. He was fascinated by TTC subways (starting with the Gloucester cars in those days), buses in all sorts of orange, green and maroon colour schemes, and of course his childhood favourite, a ride on the GO Train from Port Credit to Toronto, often for a trip to Exhibition Stadium to see the Blue Jays play.
Dave currently resides in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia with his wife and daughter. He brings an exciting energy and resources to the Foundation Board.
Keith Littlewood has been a life-long transit enthusiast. Born and raised in east end Toronto, his interest as developed by watching and riding Toronto Transit Commission buses, streetcars and subway. Initially interested in buses and main line railways, his interest has expanded to include transit systems across Canada and the United States.
Keith enjoys photography, historical research, writing and getting together with others for charters, informal get-togethers and conventions. He has had photographs and articles published in recent years and is completing a book on the TTC streetcar and subway system from 1950-2000.
Professionally, he has been employed in the transit industry for forty years including Kingston, Brampton, Hamilton and Mississauga. He is currently an Instructor – Bus Transportation at the TTC’s Operations Training Centre. Keith is excited to offer his services to the Board.
Director Richard Oldfield has expressed his desire to not stand for re-election and we thank Richard for his terms on the board and contribution to the Foundation.
