This chapter discusses the opening of rural Cuba outside of its cities by highways and the increasing reliance on automobile transport in Cuba. The Locomobile, the first North American car to reach Santiago de Cuba, Havana, appeared in May 1902. The second car, a Fiat, appeared in 1904. The city's first garage opened in 1907 and by 1913, there were over 4,000 motorized vehicles in Cuba and in 1931, Cuba had 22,695 registered cars, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.
