"Nur könnte es ja sein, dass im AE der Begriff "trolley" ohne "was drangehängt" auch eindeutig für eine Straßenbahn benutzt wird."
In (WA) ist eine Strassenbahn = streetcar.
Tacoma, Washington is about to join the growing list of North American cities operating a light rail transit (LRT) system. On Friday, 22 August 2003, Sound Transit (ST), the region's major public transport agency, will open Tacoma Link, a 1.6-mile modern electric streetcar
LRT line designed to connect major activity and transit centers in downtown Tacoma..
Sound Transit is betting that passengers will be attracted not just by the convenient route, but by the fast, comfortable service provided by the 21st-century, state-of-the-art electric streetcars which will glide up and down the route.

Metro's 159 electric trolley buses
are scheduled to be replaced in 2014. Before purchasing new buses, an in-depth, evaluation of vehicle options was conducted to determine relative costs, limitations, environmental impacts, and benefits. The findings from this evaluation will inform the technology decision for replacement of the trolley buses.
Are there other public trolley bus
systems in the United States?
Not many. Only Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, and Dayton, Ohio have electric trolley buses currently in operation. In Canada, Vancouver, B.C. also has trolleys. Electric trolley buses are more common in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.
