In 1988, the western half of Line 1 opened on existing streetcar tracks on Cranston Avenue, Park Avenue, and Union Street. It ran through the streets of Downtown Jundah and east to Harborside. Following its initial success, the line was extended to McClary Terminal.
In 1995, Line 2 was built to Grantwood Center, and in 2001, it was extended to Santa Rosita. Due to increased traffic along surface streets, several portions of track were moved underground, and most of system was temporarily closed from June to August 2004 for the tracks to be rerouted. In 2007, the entirety of Line 3 was built. An further extension of the line to the Marine Terminal is scheduled to open in 2023.
