On this date in 1913, the Pacific Electric inaugurated a new twenty-minute service on the to accommodate the unexpected traffic on Long Beach-Seal Beach line on Ocean Avenue. When the approaches to the new Alamitos Bay trestle were filled in, this became the regular schedule. This new schedule would provide four cars per hour for Seal Beach travelers. (This math makes no sense to me, but that’s the way it was reported.)
