MARIETTA, GA (WXIA) – Another city in metro Atlanta is looking to bring a trolley system to its streets. Marietta's mayor is hoping to capitalize on the new Braves stadium, now under construction in Cobb County.
Mayor Steve Tumlin is proposing the new new trolley-on-wheels system, which will circle the downtown Marietta Square area, and eventually make its way to the new Braves stadium.
As the largest city in Cobb county, Tumlin says Marietta attracts visitors from all over, and a trolley system would be the best way for people to get around.
"We would promote that we are a town with interesting stops and arts and we have a trolley to get back and forth," Tumlin said.
Tumlin says he is hoping to reinvent the idea of trolleys for downtown Marietta. He says he came up with the idea after the announcement of the Braves move to Cobb County.
