Notes

  1. The Cambridge Horse Railroad was the first street railway in Boston, opened in 1856. In 1897 the Tremont Street Subway was built downtown to take streetcars off the street; this subway is still used by today's Green Line. The first section of surface trackage still in use was in place by 1872 on Huntington Avenue, and is now used by the Green Line "E" Branch. Currently the Ashmont-Mattapan High Speed Line also runs as a streetcar line.
  2. The Newark City Subway opened in 1935, but streetcar lines opened way before then. The only section still in use is the Subway.
  3. The Rochester Subway used streetcar-style vehicles, but had underground sections, much like Boston's Green Line and the Newark City Subway. The Rochester Subway was also used for freight until 1957.
