Girard Ave Trolley Lines

Believe it or not, Philadelphia has the largest trolley system in the nation. We’ve held the title since the 1970s!

So why “trolley” and not “streetcar?” It’s a nod to America’s original trolley era; our vintage vehicles were built in 1947, and while Philadelphia did discontinue some of its original routes, many are still in use today.
