The rolling hills of Coventry were traversed by streetcars on an isolated section of track from Willimantic to South Coventry between 1909 and 1926.


A line from Rockville to Melrose passed through Ellington and Sodds Mill in the western portion of the town until 1910. Crystal Lake in the eastern section of the town was served by cars on the Rockville-Stafford Springs line until 1928.


A Hartford & Springfield Street Railway branch ran eastward from Enfield into Somers until 1925 along present day CT Route 190.


The line was built by the Stafford Springs Street Railway. Conn. Co. cars ran to Stafford Springs, 29.9 miles from downtown Hartford, from 1908 to 1928.


The Willimantic-Coventry line ran across the southwest corner of the town through Perkins Corner from 1909 to 192
