1938 - Trolley Service Ended

March 14, 1938  - "Old #85" makes its last run as buses replace Charlotte's streetcars. The city continues to grow, and the streetcars that made turn-of-the-century suburban development possible are being replaced. In a poignant ceremony at the city's crossroads known as "the Square," people bid goodbye to the beloved trolley.
