The board was scheduled to vote on the fares earlier this month, but postponed the decision until Friday.

The four-car light rail system is being absorbed into MARTA as part of a $2.6 billion expansion. MARTA said the streetcar will offer another safe and convenient mode of travel to people moving through downtown.

The streetcar runs on a 2.7 mile (4.34 kilometer) route that includes Centennial Olympic Park and the King Center.
