I took this video of the opening ceremony for the Atlanta Streetcar loop on December 30, 2014. The streetcar, which ended up costing $98 million, has not been a success. It runs in traffic, so you can almost walk to any destination faster than waiting for the streetcar. I wrote about all of this, including this opening ceremony, in the book. You can see Mayor Kasim Reed with his wife and child and then hear some of the dedication prayers for the new Streetcar by Auburn Avenue ministers.
