History

Rick Jelfs has collected transit company ephemera - mostly maps and schedules - and taken pictures of transit vehicles while on vacation. His interest in transportation started as a child when he could rattle off the names of cars as they went by. In 1970, he went to university in Vancouver where he used and studied the city transit systems. After graduating, Jelfs moved to Toronto and discovered the Toronto Transit Commission with its iconic PCC streetcars. He decided that he wanted to operate them and thus started a 30 year career in the transit industry. After retiring to Vancouver Jelfs 'downsized' his collection through donations to local archives, museums and libraries across North America.
