1929: Cities in Connecticut Do Away With Trolleys

(By International News Service)

Middletown, Conn., April 22.–Middletown will soon join the rapidly growing list of Connecticut cities that have no trolley cars. The Connecticut Company has asked permission from the public utilities commission to do away with all street cars except those of the interurban line connecting with Hartford and substitute buses. Already buses are used on other interurban lines, and some of the local lines.
