The Kenosha Streetcar Society was co founded by Jack Doyle and Louis Rugani in 2002.  The group is a non-profit 
organization working to preserve and promote Kenosha's streetcar system and history, as well as other cities who
have had and continue to have rail transit systems. This group has produced KENOSHA ON THE GO, a picture book
highlighting the various forms of public transportation in Kenosha over the years (Go to Merchandise Page).
The group also sponsors an annual streetcar day featuring tours of the car barn and an opportunity to view each
of the cars. Jack Doyle and the late Edward Rosengren have previously served as Chairmen.
