The Toronto Transportation Society was founded in 1973 by a group of transportation enthusiasts who shared a common interest in streetcars, buses, subways and railways. The objective of the Society was "... for the association of persons interested in transportation by land, sea and air and to afford members facilities for discussion and exchange of information pertaining thereto."
Initially, the Society focused its attention on local Toronto transit and transportation issues, but over the years, as membership increased, the scope of the Society did as well.
Our focus now is primarily on transit in and around the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), but does include the Greater Golden Horseshoe Area and much of Southern Ontario as well. Toronto, being ideally located, is within an hour or two drive of over 25 local transit properties and thus is home to the majority of the Society's activities.
An Internet presence over the past decade has given the Society new life, by bringing a whole new generation of enthusiasts into both the hobby and the Society itself. Members in the TTS are from all over Canada, the United States and even Europe!

- Kevin Nicol - President
