At one time, all surface transit in Brooklyn was operated by rail - either trolleys or rapid transit - by the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company. In 1923, the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit company emerged from the rubble of the BRT's bankruptcy to operate the subways and trolleys in Brooklyn.
In 1940, the City of New York took control of all transit operations in the city.
On June 1, 1940, there were over 1,200 trolleys in regular passenger service.
After the Board of Transportation took over, removal of rail service in favor of buses began to accelerate.
The last Brooklyn trolley operated in 1956.
