Montreal Street Railway innovation

Mass Transportation Magazine January 1954
In 1905 the Montreal Street Railway shops built the first pay-as-you-enter street car. The entry way was lengthened and a rail divided the area. Two doors were furnished, one opening in for entry, the other opening out for exit. It was an important step in the "circulating-load" system of handling passengers and other cities soon followed Montreal's lead.
