    Here are some quick facts about the Streetcar:​
    • 2.7 track miles
    • ƒ12 stops
    • 4 vehicles
    • 15-minute frequency
    • Free transfer to/from MARTA
    • Breeze smartcard fare collection system using MARTA fare policy
    Here is the Proposed Operating Schedule:
    • Weekday: 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (18 hours)
    • Saturday: 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (14.5 hours)
    • Sunday: 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. (13.5 hours)
    I know it's a start, but I would like to see more frequency and vehicles in the beginning. If one came every 5-7 minutes -- especially on such a short route -- I think people would want to ride it more. Who really wants to wait 15 minutes for a ride?
