MARTA to host virtual public forum on streetcar extension

MARTA will host a virtual public meeting on May 27 at 6 p.m. to provide updates and receive input on the extension of the streetcar from Downtown to the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail.

The extension project will see the streetcar run from Jackson Avenue, along Edgewood Avenue, to the BeltLine at Irwin Street, and then up to Ponce City Market.

The virtual public meeting will include a presentation from the project team, including information on preliminary engineering efforts, proposed alignments, and stop locations, and will be followed by a Q&A session.
