The Streetcar is Coming!

Construction is about to begin on the highly anticipated Atlanta Street Car, and MARTA's got the changed bus routes to prove it! Funded with $47 million from the federal government and $25 million from the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, the Street Car will launch in 2013 and run a 2.6 mile stretch between Centennial Olympic Park and the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Site. In addition to making life easier for Atlanta tourists, the project is slated to create thousands of jobs. Would that it were.
