BSRA Membership

We are fortunate to have a wide-ranging membership from around New England, the country, and the world. Many of our members have been with us for 10, 20, 30 years or more, but we've welcomed lots of new members in recent years.

If you've got an interest in streetcars, horsecars, subways, trains, buses, or even Boston in general, we'd be happy to have you on board!
