The Atlanta Streetcar is the result of a cooperative effort by the City of Atlanta, the business community and MARTA to bring to fruition critical infrastructure that will connect the metro area and the greater region.

The long-term vision for the proposed streetcar includes a north-to-south route from the Brookhaven MARTA station to Fort McPherson and an east-to-west route connecting The King Center to the Centennial Olympic Park area west of Peachtree Street.  Initial funding will kick start the first phase, focusing on the Downtown east-west route.  As they become available, additional federal funding opportunities will be pursued to further fund the streetcar’s expansion.  Key features of the streetcar include:

  • Potential for higher passenger loads
  • Draw new transit riders
  • Produces fewer emissions, impacting air quality and sustainability
  • Reduces dependence on cars in a significant live-and-work corridor
  • Appeals to visitors with its predictable fixed route
  • Potential to increase ridership on connecting transit network
