Shreveport Louisiana Trolleybus Map

Source:  "Shreveport:  The Trackless Trolley Years 1931-65", In Southern Traction Annals Trolley Coach News, Ruffin, Tom, Winter and Spring, 1981, Vol. 12, Number 1, Published May, 1984.

Shreveport Louisian had an interesting trolleybus operation that ended in 1965.  This not well known system had a unique system of route identification where each route had a unique symbol made out of sheet metal that was connected on the roof on the front driver's side.

  Map above comes from page 17 of the sited work and was drawn by Wayne Hom in January, 1975.  The overhead wire diagram comes from a Ray Degroote Map of 2/63.  The map covers the period of 1956 to 1965.
