So, what's the difference between and interurban and a streetcar? What are they?
An interurban was designed with comfort in mind for high-speed, long-distance travel between cities as well as the occasional movement of perishable goods, like flowers or milk, from farm-to-city.
A streetcar was designed to move people short distances inter-city from one point to another at lower speeds. One would typically take the streetcar to go shopping, go to work downtown, or visit a friend across town.
