Georgia Department of Transportation officials have issued threats to shut down the Atlanta Streetcar because of alleged lack of efficiency, bad management and inadequately trained workers.
GDOT says it stop operations by June 14 if MARTA and Atlanta don’t develop concrete ideas to solve problems, states WXIA-TV.

In a letter to WSB-TV that the city has since August 2015 submitted numerous Corrective Action Plan logs and that officials are eager to receive feedback to continue the review process and to meet the agency’s requests.
