The Atlanta Streetcars will soon begin testing on the rails. This testing phase, which lasts 60 to 90 days, will help us ensure that our system will be completely safe and ready for passenger service. Once testing is completed and the system is certified, we will begin passenger service.
Anticipated addition of more streetcar lines and expanded services, links to the Atlanta BeltLine and future intercity and regional rail services.
Work is permitted 24 hours a day, Monday through Saturday. Additional utility construction permits are also approved on Auburn Avenue and throughout the rest of the streetcar corridor, so additional construction activities can be expected in the near future. We will do our best to communicate construction updates as more work commences along the route.
