Imagine being able to hop on a streetcar and go just about anywhere inside the 22-mile loop that makes up the Atlanta BeltLine.

That’s the proposal laid out by the BeltLine during a recent “community discussion” that showcased the “priority” lines for the Atlanta Streetcar System Plan.

Curbed Atlanta has a report and maps showing the lines and you can also read the full BeltLine report in PDF format at this link.

There would be a streetcar running the entire BeltLine loop, but also connecting lines criss-crossing the city including an East-West line that would link Inman Park to Atlanta University Center, a north-south line running by Atlantic Station, Georgia Tech and what is now Turner Field, and another crosstown line that would run out North Avenue.

The plan also resurrects the idea of running a streetcar down Peachtree from Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza in Buckhead to Fort McPherson (future home of Tyler Perry Studios).
