INTRODUCTION
Since Boston is among America's oldest cities, it is natural that its transit system has a long and colorful history, stretching back several hundred years.
The first public transit in Boston, and in fact in North America, dates back to November 6, 1630, when the Court of Assistants of the Massachusetts Bay Colony established a franchise for the operation of a ferry service between Boston, Charlestown, and Chelsea (then known as Winnissimmet). The first holder of this franchise was William Converse, who began operation of the Winnissimmet Ferry (as it became known) in June 1631. In October of 1637, the legislature awarded the franchise to Harvard College "who may assign the franchise as they see fit;" the revenue from the ferry was to be used for the support of the college. This arrangement continued until early 1831, when Harvard decided to sell the franchise because it had other sources of income.
