First Run: November 13, 1931
Last Run: October 2, 1946*

* There is a disconnect regarding the last run date. "The Trolley Coach in North America" indicates it as September 15, 1946. However, Paul Stringham's "76 Years of Peoria Street Cars" provides additional details regarding the operations of the streetcars and trolleybuses in Peoria, and would seem to indicate that the last trolleybus run was on the evening of October 2, 1946, with diesels replacing the streetcars and trolleybuses on October 3, 1946.
