The fonds consists of records of Calgary Transit which date back to the year of its establishment, 1909 and include records created after 1972, when it became part of the Transportation Department. Included are records created under its previous names: Calgary Transit System, Calgary Municipal Railway, and Calgary Electric Railway. The records of the remaining components of The Transportation Department, including the Director's office, Finance and Accounting, Traffic Operations, and Transportation Planning, are described separately in the "Inventory to the Records of the Transportation Department". The records of Calgary Transit include correspondence, reports, minutes of meetings, bulletins, publications, lists, directories, ledger books, register books, mechanical drawings, and photographs. There are also some non-record materials, including technical manuals, publications of other agencies, artifacts, tickets, passes, and transfers. The records have been grouped into nine series, based in general on their physical form.
