ATLANTA -- Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed surprised everyone Tuesday morning when he said you won't need that dollar to ride the Atlanta Streetcar.
At the annual meeting of Central Atlanta Progress, Reed said the streetcar will remain free for all of 2015.
The Atlanta Streetcar has been free since it first started running back in December. But riders were supposed to start paying a dollar per fare starting April 1st.
Reed says the original fare collection method, which would have required a card similar to MARTA, was outdated.
