About This Company

Houston and Galveston were linked from 1911 to 1936 by a high-speed interurban line, whose cars covered the 50-mile distance, downtown to downtown, in as little as 75 minutes. The Galveston-Houston Electric Railway was a separate operation from the Houston Electric (the city streetcar lines), although it was under the same corporate umbrella and consequently there was some sharing of tracks and facilities.  Although it cannot be compared to such great interurban systems as the Pacific Electric or the Illinois Terminal, as a single-line company it ranks among the very best ever operated, both in terms of physical facilities and quality of service.
