            The fonds consists of records created by the Alberta Motor Transport Board and its predecessor the Highway Traffic Board.

            The Highway Traffic Board was formed in 1936 when the Public Service Vehicles Act replaced The Public Vehicles Act. In 1974, the Board was renamed the Motor Transport Board. Under the Alberta Motor Transport Act, the Board acted as an autonomous quasi-judicial tribunal and dealt with intra and extra provincial motor carrier and bus matters. The Board also had delegated authority from the federal government by virtue of the Motor Vehicle Transport Act. In 1999, the Board merged with the Driver Control Board to form the Alberta Transportation Safety Board.
