Additional Product Information
The history of Boston's public transportation system can be traced to the early 19th century with the development of omnibuses - enlarged stagecoaches which made multiple stops along a route instead of only traveling between two distant locations. Within less than a century, Boston continued to evolve from offering horse carriages on rails to boasting one of the leading electric powered railway systems to establishing North America's first subway in 1897. In this inaugural year, the Miss Liberty Nickel was the fare to ride. 90 years later, the "T" token was minted and in-use until the Charlie Card in 2006.
