After launching the CRRMA website, we created a microsite to celebrate the history of the streetcars and explain how the CRRMA and its partners worked to get them rolling again. Streetcars were first introduced in El Paso in 1881. After more than 90 years of service, the streetcar system was discontinued in 1974. However in 2015, after a number of feasibility studies and with the acquisition of federal funding, the streetcars were officially approved to return to service. The CRRMA was tasked with overseeing the project, and has now turned it over to the City of El Paso.
