The city of Atlanta’s $98 million (€82 million) initiative to bring electric streetcars back to the city is now finally starting to bear fruit, with the first section of a possible city-wide network now open to the public.
 
This small loop of an electric streetcar system opened just a few days ago, on December 30th, but is well worth taking note of, as this is the first time that a streetcar has operated in Atlanta since all the way back in 1949. Back in early 20th century the streetcar was so popular that, apparently, even the mayor of the city would ride it to work.
