EV World: The Other Side of the 'Trolley Conspiracy'

EV World: The Other Side of the ‘Trolley Conspiracy’

In preparing his Op-Ed, “Trolley Folly of Decades Past Still Affects Transit Systems,” published July 24th issue of the Salt Lake City Tribune, Roger McDonough has unfortunately failed to fully research the underlying facts behind the near disappearance of streetcars from the American public transit scene. In fairness, he is only one of many who have heard only side of the story of how General Motors Corporation and other major industrials were supposed to have destroyed streetcars in cities from coast to coast and chosen to believe what they have heard or read without question.

Like most conspiracy theories, the ‘trolley conspiracy’ is largely bunk. (Also one more inaccuracy in that propagandistic documentary “The Corporation”)
