In The Early 1900s, Trolley Cars Rolled Through The Streets Of Salt Lake City, Utah
TRAX moves a lot of people from one end of the Salt Lake Valley to the other every year. Our light rail system opened in December, 1999, but it wasn’t Salt Lake’s first mass transit system. In fact, most Utahns are probably unaware that half of Salt Lake City residents took mass transit every day back in 1914. That’s right…that year people took 38.9 million trolley rides.
Some Utahns might remember the trolley cars that rolled through the streets of Salt Lake City. The rest of us can only imagine! Check out these old trolley car photos from the past:
