An unusual wide punch ticket from Johannesburg Municipal Transport 

The Ticket & Fare Collection Society was founded in 1946 in the north-east of England to bring together collectors of transport tickets, principally road (bus and tram) and railway.

In 1963, the T&FCS merged with the International Society of Transport Ticket Collectors to form the present Transport Ticket Society, the foremost such society in the world. In the years since then it has steadily grown, with members mostly in the United Kingdom, but also in Europe, the Americas and the Far East. Interests represented include bus, tram and rail, as well as shipping and airline tickets, tokens and ticket equipment.

The Society offers wide range of facilities including a monthly, illustrated, 40-page Journal, an extensive range of Ticket Distributions, Ticket Exchange Pools, Circuits, a Library and Postal Auctions.  There are regular members meetings in Manchester.

The Society actively encourages research into the history of tickets, ticket equipment and related matters and is a founder-member of the Roads & Road Transport History Association. There are regular historical articles in Journal and longer works appear as special Publications.

New members are very welcome, whatever their areas of interest and whether beginners or established collectors. Join here!
