Abstract

This paper analyses how the Medellín elite developed a mass-transport system, the urban tramway, during the first decades of the 20th century. This project supported the city’s industrialisation and facilitated constructing working-class neighbourhoods in the periphery. The elite’s progressive perspective combined advancing their private interests with a concern for public welfare and the needs of a growing urban area
