The San Jose and Santa Clara Railroad Company was founded in 1868 and began laying tracks for a horsecar line from San José to Santa Clara via The Alameda. The horsecar made its inaugural 45 minute journey on November 1, 1868. Twenty years later, The San Jose and Santa Clara Railroad Company began constructing an underground electric trolley line. When completed, the mechanical problems were so frequent that service was suspended and the horsecars returned. In 1889 the underground electric system was removed and replaced with an overhead electric system that ran up and down The Alameda until the mid 1930s, when the system was replaced by buses.
