The Historical Transit Routes layer contains streetcar, horsecar, ferry, 1948 bus and steampower routes in the Twin Cities seven county metropolitan area. One shape and one corresponding record exists for each dated route segment.
The line work for the dataset was developed by referencing the Metropolitan Council's functional class road dataset.
Attributes include type, corridor, year start, year end, year restart and private right-of-way.
