In 1971, Kenosha Transit became responsible for all transit lines in Kenosha. The last streetcars ran in 1932, and trolleybuses ran from 1932 to 1952.
A unique new light rail line opened in downtown Kenosha in 2000, operating between the Metra train station and the lakefront.
In 1903, the Kenosha Electric Railway Co. was the first of several companies to operate public transportation in Kenosha.
