Description

In 1906, Treasure Valley residents enjoyed the electric interurban line, "Boise & Interurban (B & I)" which connected the Boise Valley to the north of the Boise River. The south extension to this transit line was opened in 1912, running through Nampa, terminating in Caldwell, creating what was known as "The Loop."
The system was abandoned in 1928.
