Streetcars (trams) lasted in this city from 1888 to 1936 when they were replaced by buses.  Initial cars were steam powered but conversion to electricity was rapid, complete in 1891. As elsewhere in North America, there has been recent investigation into bringing them back. A detailed history is here
