ATLANTA — The Atlanta Streetcar started operations on Dec. 30, 2014, and riders can hop on board at no charge for the rest of 2015.

The 2.7-mile streetcar line connects with MARTA, the city’s existing transit system, at Peactree Center. Plans call for the system to eventually connect to the Atlanta BeltLine, a public-private partnership that is building walking paths along abandoned, underused and active railroad right-of-ways.

The initial system has 12 stops and four electric streetcars.
