A transfer apparatus for tire constituting members transfers them from a pre-process drum such as a carcass band forming drum to a post-process drum such as a tire forming drum. The apparatus includes a movable frame movable between the pre-process drum and the post-process drum, a holder mounted on the movable frame so that the holder is able to surround and grasp the tire constituting member, and a correction mechanism mounted on the holder on a near side to the post-process drum to expand an axial end of the tire constituting member which is tapered due to rubber contraction and gravity for correcting the tire constituting member into a substantially cylindrical shape.
