Be a good neighbor. Help them out during streetcar/BeltLine construction
Okay, everyone who claims to support transit alternatives in Atlanta. Here’s a great chance to put your money where your mouth is. Atlanta Streetcar work is progressing—oh-so-slowly but steadily—and so is work on the Atlanta BeltLine. But while all of this is underway, it means major hassles for businesses in the Sweet Auburn corridor, especially right on Edgewood and Auburn avenues.
Yes, the Atlanta Streetcar is still a go. It’s just way behind schedule.
A century ago, streetcars were Atlanta’s proverbial lifeblood, connecting Downtown to “suburbs” like Inman Park, Druid Hills, and the West End. Even as cars became common in the 1920s and 1930s, Atlantans continued commuting by trolley, streetcar, and intercity train.
