REVEALED: Photo sneak peek of Atlanta Streetcar

Streetcar to connect Centennial Olympic Park area to the Martin Luther King Jr. historic site.

Mayor Kasim Reed revealed a sneak peek of the Atlanta Streetcar Thursday at the annual meeting for the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District.

The Atlanta Streetcar project purchased four Siemens S70 vehicles which are being assembled in Sacramento, CA with its propulsion system being manufactured in metro-Atlanta.

Branding for the vehicle was designed by Atlanta firms Bigelow Advertising and Jones-Worley.

Currently, track is being installed along Edgewood Avenue and passenger service will begin in 2014.
