Horse Trails to Regional Rails:

The Story of Public Tranist in Greater Cleveland

By James A. Toman and Blaine S. Hays

A Kent State University Press publication, the book is an extensive history of the development of public transit in Cleveland, a city that grew from an outpost of the new nation in 1796 to a manufacturing and industrial center within a century. How did Clevelanders get from place to place? What trends dominated the development of Cleveland's public transportation? In photos, maps, and words, the book takes readers through a detailed history of Cleveland's rise to prominence, struggles with urban decay, and renaissance in the late 20th century and how transit mirrored these developments.
