    Historical Context

    In 1941 the City Railway Company purchased the Dayton Street Railway. The Peoples' Street Railway Company merged into the City Railway in 1945. The final running of street (rail) cars took place in September 1947, when electric trolley buses (ETBs) replaced the rail cars on the 3rd Street line.

    City Railway became City Transit Co. in 1955, and the new Miami Valley Regional Transit Authority (RTA) took over public transit operations in November 1972.
