Atlanta's streetcars are rolling! Whether you have ridden them or not, we hope you will join Citizens for Progressive Transit for a tour on Saturday, February 7.
We have asked Tom Weyandt to serve as our guide. Tom served as the Director of Comprehensive Planning for the Atlanta Regional Commission for a decade. He then became Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed's Senior Policy Advisor for Transportation and served in this role throughout the construction of the Atlanta Streetcar.
Come learn about the effort to bring streetcars back to Atlanta streets. Also hear about future plans to take this transit vehicle to the Beltline and beyond.
We plan to break for lunch at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, home to several great eateries.
Take MARTA rail to the Peachtree Center MARTA station (N1). Exit the south end of the platform and take the long escalator on the left. A second escalator takes you to street level. The streetcar stop is at the top of the second escalator.
