Before the advent of school bus service students would ride trolleys and later Potomac Edison to reach points closer to their school.  This was most useful for students living outside of the city who traveled to attend in-city high schools, however it was also used by students who would need to travel several city blocks to reach their school.

This particular ticket is punched to expire on May 13, 1946.  When looking at punched tickets notice that each motorman and conductor had a different shaped punch.

This ticket was printed by the Globe Ticket Company.
