洛杉矶铁路公司(Los Angeles Railway,后来被命名成洛杉矶交通公司,Los Angeles Transit Lines)[1] ,也经常因其车辆的涂装而被称为黄色电车公司(黄车),是洛杉矶曾经存在的一个有轨电车公司,其电车网络连接了洛杉矶市中心及其周边地区。其另外还运营两段缆索铁路。 该系统在洛杉矶市区跟太平洋电车公司(红车)的线路共线,但轨距不同。[2]该公司后来被全国城市干线公司购买,很多电车线路被拆除,或者废弃或者改造成普通公共汽车,最终成为通用汽车电车阴谋的牺牲品。[3]

  1. ^ Book Review: Los Angeles Railway Yellow Cars. "By the end of World War II, the Huntington estate sold its majority interest to Chicago-based National City Lines. LARY became the Los Angeles Transit Lines, and bigger changes were in store. Many lines were converted to bus operation through the late forties and fifties. Never mind that NCL was partially owned by bus, tire, and gasoline suppliers. Though Federal anti-trust action was taken against NCL, the damage was already done. Los Angeles was officially in love with the automobile."

  3. ^ Finding Aid for the Los Angeles Railway Corporation Legal Records and Correspondence. "the controlling interest remained part of the Huntington estate until 1945 when the Fitzgerald Brothers purchased those shares. LARy became part of the National City Lines, was renamed the Los Angeles Transit Lines, and eventually the streetcars were phased out, replaced by motor buses."
