Commuting is a fact of life for tens of million of Americans.

The primary stop between these locations was in Plano, which is now the site for the Interurban Railway Museum. Plano decided to renovate the station into a museum to recognize the importance of the station as a sign of technological progression. The electric railway car was an important advancement of the traditional steam engine. The museum features pictures, displays and artifacts from the Texas Electric Railway.
