Who are we?
Founded by STIB in 1982, our association is made up entirely of volunteers. They manage the museum, they maintain and drive its historical vehicles, and they make sure those vehicles are properly restored.
Throughout the years we have also collected a large number of objects and documents related to public transport in Brussels. Although these activities are all supported by STIB/MIVB, they are financed by our own means. We receive no subsidies whatsoever from any public body.
If any of the aspects of our museum or its activities interest you, and if you would like to contribute in any way: feel free to join us. Helping hands are more than welcome!
On top of our usual trips, we regularly organize thematic outings on the STIB network: from reliving disappeared lines to our annual “mulled wine tram” or visits to sheds or maintenance workshops.
We also organize trips focused on public transport, even multi-day tours abroad to meet up with similar associations and their members.
