ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed says there are plans to expand the Atlanta Streetcar system to the east, which would connect it with the Atlanta BeltLine trail.

Reed announced the plans Wednesday, during the annual State of the City business breakfast.

Reed said the city is taking the “first steps” to connect the Atlanta Streetcar’s downtown track eastward by three-quarters of a mile. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/1EGoSmj) that the extension would connect the streetcar with the BeltLine.

The streetcar’s current 2.7-mile route opened on Dec. 30 and includes a dozen stops.
