Who killed the electric streetcar?

September 2008 editorial from

Who Killed the Electric Streetcar?

"In 1888 the electric streetcar or "trolley" came to Richmond as America's first large scale and successful use of electricity to run public transit. On January 9, Car #28 became the first revenue streetcar industry in America, operating on the Church Hill line at a fare of five cents."
