Former Streetcar Lines

Municipal takeover of the legacy the streetcar network in Detroit, including the former privately owned Detroit United Railway, took place in 1922. However, Detroit, being home of the US automotive industry, led the way in bus substitution, the process beginning in 1925. The last steel-wheeled streetcar ran in Detroit in 1956.
