TROLLEY CARS IN THE BRONX

Did anyone this board take a ride on a Bronx Trolley prior to 1950? How did it compare to a bus?

I can remember the Trolley tracks before they were paved over with Asphalt but can't quite remember the Trolley's in service in the Bronx. Were the Trolleys far fewer than the buses that later replaced them? Why were the Trolleys replaced at all since they didn't spew the noxious diesel smoke that the buses that replaced them did? What year were the Trolleys pulled from service in the Bronx?
