FEATURE VIDEO: 60 Years Ago, the CTA Ran Its Last Streetcar. (June 21,1958)

“60 years ago, the CTA ran its last streetcar.

So, you could call this final Green Hornet run down Vincennes Avenue on June, 21 1958, “A Streetcar Named Retire.”

Bus service gradually replaced streetcars throughout Chicago, but the old streetcar tracks are buried under many streets. Fascinating video of that last run.”

This video is a compilation of vintage streetcar footage taken in Chicago leading up to the final ride-thru of the “Green Hornet” on June 22, 1958.
