“If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going.”— Author, Poet, Activist and former Streetcar Conductor Maya Angelou
In 1930 Sacramento was served by the local electric streetcars of the Pacific Gas & Electric Company, as well as the heavy interurbans of Sacramento Northern along its routes between Chico and San Francisco, and the Central California Traction Company along its way to Stockton.
PG&E’s excellent 1943 route map also shows the extent of the California’s Capital during the Second World War. Streetcar routes #3, #5, #6 and #11 all served the trains of Sacramento’s SP Station. Nine bus routes were also operated.
