# Note. To secure comparability, the passenger traffic statistics of the Southern Pacific Company's electric fines at San Francisco are omitted from the 1938 figures shown in this statement because in
1939 the operation of these electric lines was transferred to the Interurban Electric Railway Company, which does not report in this monthly series. Statements for months prior to April 1939
included the 1938 eleotrio line statistics.

# Note. To secure comparability, the passenger traffic statistics of the Southern Pacifoi Company's electric lines at San Francisco are omitted from the 1938 figures shown in this statement because In
1939 the operation of these electric lines was transferred to the Interurban Electric Railway Company, which does not report in this monthly series. Statements for months prior to April 1939
included the 1938 electric line statistics.

# Note. To secoure comparability, the passenger traffic statistics of the Southern Pacific Comopany's electric lines at San Francisoo are omitted from the 1938 figures shown in this statement because in
1939 the operation of these electric lines was transferred to the Interurban Electric Railway Company, which does not report in this monthly series. Statements for months prior to April 1939
included the 1938 electric line statistics.

# Note. To seour*e ooparability, the passenger traffic statistics of the Southern Pacific Company's eleotrie lines at San Francisco are omitted from the 1938 figures ehown in this statement because in
1939 the operation of these electric lines was transferred to the Interurban Electrio Railway Company, which does not report in this monthly series. Statements for months prior to April 1939
included the 1938 electric line statistics.

# Note. To secure comparability, the passenger traffic statistics of the Southern Pacific Company' s electric lines at Ban Franoisco are omitted from the 1938 figures shown in this statement because In
1939 the operation of these eleotrio lines was transferred to the Interurban Electrio Ballway Company, which does not report in this monthly series. Statements for months prior to April 1939
included the 1938 eleotrico line statistics.
