Trolley commuter

McKinney Avenue Trolley, Dallas Texas Holga

 

A rush-hour rider uses the commute time for reading as Rosie passes over the heavy traffic on Woodall Rogers on St. Paul going north.

The McKinney Avenue Transit Authority has five trolleys in operation and had 195,000 riders in 2005. The loop is 3.8 miles long and there are plans to expand it in downtown Dallas beginning in 2007. At the height of the electric trolley usage in Dallas, there were 800 miles under wire in the early 1930's.
