ANN ARBOR TRANSIT HISTORY

In 1890, the Ann Arbor Street Railway Co. introduced electric streetcar service in Ann Arbor. For many years, the streetcar system was part of the Detroit United Railway, which also operated interurban lines in the area. And after the streetcars were replaced with buses in 1925, various companies operated the buses until the public takeover in 1969.
