Rumor has it that after the plug was pulled on Brooklyn's Trolleybuses in July1960, an official New York City report came out that stated that trolleybuses are effective in keeping air pollution down. It is very unlikely that trolleybuses or streetcars would ever return to Brooklyn because of politics and lack of money. There is money but it must be used for fixing up the emergency status of subways today.
