I think Buffalo was the first city to use the Near-Side car design.  

Philadelphia was the biggest user, with 1,500 of them running by 1915: 

In later years, most of the Nearsides were converted to center exit: 

In addition to Buffalo and Philadelphia, Nearsides ran in Chicago and Atlantic City.

M. Mitchel,

Please explain what a "nearside" trolley car is.

Sure!  Take a trolley like this:

Cars like this would board from the rear platform.  So, the procedure at an intersection would be for the car to cross, then stop with the rear platform at the corner (the 'far side' across the street).   

The Nearside car, on the other hand, is designed to load from the front:  

So, it would stop before the intersection and not block it while loading. 

Before the Nearsides were converted to center exit cars, entry and exit were done via the front doors, which made things a tad awkward...

ITS Class D


A good deal of strategic planning is like a ritual rain dance.

It has no effect on the weather that follows, but those who engage in it think it does. 

Furthermore, much of the advice related to strategic planning is directed at improving the

dancing, not the weather.
