Pages include links to more detailed historical information, for the largest city transit systems. For Midwest cities, includes additional maps and historic roster information.
In addition, the following small densely populated states in the Northeast have statewide transit systems, where more detailed historical information is included.
Included are concise histories for the largest transit systems, including the historic companies which had previously operated the public transportation systems in each city, and years of operation of each type of public transportation vehicle.
Streetcar companies are mentioned in the Moody and the Poor investment manuals, the McGraw Electric Railway Directories, the McGraw publication Street Railway Journal and its successor Electric Railway Journal, and "The Trolley And Interurban Directory", by Joseph Gross. But it is possible, that some streetcar systems failed to be completed, and were never actually operated.
