Fun Fact about the Syracuse area …. did you know …..

… operating from 1888 to 1941, the electric trolleys dominated streets in Syracuse and were the predecessors of today’s modern buses. Trolleys, called “electric railroads” at the time, shared the streets with horse-drawn buggies and by 1928, there were as many as 24 separate trolley lines ran through Syracuse and its surrounding area. The Electric Railroad Terminal was located on the north side of Clinton Square. The final trolley ride in Syracuse ran on January 4, 1941.
