Atlanta begins charging for a streetcar named Undesirable

Critics question if Atlanta's year-old streetcar system can ever adequately serve the vast city and they say the streetcars needlessly clog roads that serve the cars and trucks which the area has long relied on.


THE streetcar was stopped in downtown traffic, and before long Keisha Schwarzel figured that was enough of a first experience with the year-old addition to Atlanta's transit system.

"I'd rather walk," Ms Schwarzel, 35, said on a rain-drenched Wednesday morning.
