The Transit Museum Society of British Columbia (TRAMS) is an independent registered society established in 1986 to document and preserve the province’s transit heritage. It restores and operates vehicles significant to the history of public transit in British Columbia, and maintains a library which contains thousands of documents and other artifacts that build a comprehensive picture of its evolution.

Based in Burnaby, TRAMS has a fleet of thirteen operational vehicles, and two pending restoration. These vehicles were previously in use by both public and private operating companies between 1937 and 2010. Volunteers from TRAMS also operated the Vancouver Downtown Historic Railway and carried out restoration and maintenance of the historic electric interurban cars used on that line, until its operation was suspended indefinitely in 2012.
