Later this year, the Atlanta Streetcar will likely begin shuttling riders around parts of Downtown and Old Fourth Ward. Although there's no official launch date yet, the city's close enough to that point where they're ready to have a conversation about how much fares should eventually cost.
At 7 p.m. tonight, city officials will hold a meeting inside Atlanta City Council's old chambers at City Hall to provide the public with a chance to weigh in on the costs associated with riding around the 2.7-mile loop through the heart of the city.
The proposed fares are expected to head before Council on June 2. Once passed, the fare structure could go into effect following a three-month period where riders are expected to get to ride for free.
Here's a list of the proposed fares:
Full Fare (One-Way Trip): $1.00
Child Fare (2 children with paid adult): $0.00
One-Day Pass: $3.00
Seven Day (Weekly) Pass: $11.00
30-Day (Monthly) Pass: $40.00
Five-Day (Visitor) Pass: $10.00
If you can't make it to tonight's meeting, but would like to express your thoughts to Streetcar officials, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-330-6759.
