This Just In….
The Atlanta Streetcar will officially open for passenger service on Tuesday, December 30th, 2014.
In a press release from the office of Mayor Kasim Reed, it has JUST been announced that the long-waited, constantly-delayed, but well-worth-the-wait light rail vehicle will now commence passenger service next Tuesday, just in time for New Year’s and the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl. Or whatever it’s called nowadays.
It was only yesterday when onlookers were giddy as the four vehicles were pulled by tow trucks and then they learned to walk on their own. Now Father Federal Transit Administration has decided to let the young bull roam free into the wild concrete jungle known as Downtown Atlanta.
BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE!!!
Mayor Reed is also holding a grand opening celebration at the Woodruff Park stop “Where Peachtree meets Auburn”. Come out and celebrate one of Atlanta’s new milestones.
