Streetcar System Plan
Transit for the Future of Atlanta
The Atlanta BeltLine/Atlanta Streetcar System Plan (SSP) is an integrated network of streetcar lines that go around the Atlanta BeltLine and across the city of Atlanta. The priority network focuses on 53 miles of streetcar routes, along with 18 miles of new or enhanced transit service that interfaces with the system.
On December 8, 2015, the Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) received approval from the Atlanta City Council on the Atlanta BeltLine/Atlanta Streetcar System Plan (SSP). The SSP is an amendment to the Connect Atlanta Plan. Prior to the adoption of the SSP by City Council, ABI received unanimous approval from the Council’s Community Development/Human Resources Committee on the Streetcar System Plan.
More Ways to Connect
The SSP consists of a 50+ mile streetcar system throughout the City of Atlanta, which includes five crosstown routes, in addition to the 22-miles of streetcar along the Atlanta BeltLine corridor. The SSP will also serve as a framework for a potential Fulton County TSPLOST referendum in 2016 and is a necessary requirement for any major transit project seeking federal funding from the Federal Transit Administration. This action by the City Council now enables the city to apply for large scale federal transportation funding.
The Atlanta Streetcar System Plan is the culmination of a multiyear planning effort undertaken by ABI that engaged citizens throughout Atlanta. This Streetcar Plan outlines the public’s desire for more transit service in Atlanta and establishes the planning framework for future streetcar connectivity – around the BeltLine and along critical crosstown corridors.The Atlanta Streetcar System Plan will provide the roadmap for integrating the Atlanta Streetcar and the Atlanta BeltLine as Atlanta’s modern streetcar network is being built.
