The portion along Edgewood and Auburn is better. It actually cuts out a lot of walking.
Someone claimed it went nowhere so JPD and were listing all the points of interest close to the line. Walking the entire line is not a huge undertaking, but new comers and visitors are apprehensive to walk somehwere they don't know. Using rail based transit makes new users feel.more comfortable because they know it can not diverge from the route.

There's a really good collection of murals along the route, too. I wouldn't be surprised if people ride it as a loop just to have a look around, and don't even get off at any of the attractions.

As long as they pay their fare, after 3 months, I see no problem with it. I am sure like marta trains, if the person stays on too long, they will be asked to leave.

Ha! I'm not referring to vagrancy. I just meant people might ride just to see parts of the city they might not have walked or driven to. Just by riding the thing you can see the nightclub where all the R&B greats played, the church where MLK was a minister, some of the best public art in the city, the site of the old Playboy Club, Ted Turner walking his girlfriend's dog, etc.
