Kenosha on the Go chronicles 110 years of transportation in Kenosha. From the first interurban streetcar that reached Kenosha’s northern city limits in 1897, to the existing transit system in 2007, this book covers local streetcar operations, trackless trolley and bus operations, the two electric interurbans that served Kenosha, and the North Western Railway. Kenosha on the Go also brings readers to the rebirth of streetcar operations in Kenosha at the dawn of the 21st century. John F. Doyle, the primary author of this title, cofounded the Kenosha Streetcar Society with Louis Rugani of Kenosha in 2002. Doyle was raised in Chicago where streetcars, interurbans, “L” trains, subway trains, trackless trolleys, and buses were all part of the everyday scene. When his family got its first car in 1945, a favorite memory was driving through Kenosha and viewing those trackless trolleys amid the classic downtown buildings.
