Trackless Trolley Map and Bus Lines circa 1950

Posted by &filed under Maps.

We can’t find a date on this map, but the Atlanta Transit Company operated between 1950 and 1972. Given the lack of interstates on the map, we can reasonably assume this is from the 1950s.

The “Shoppers Special” route is pretty interesting. It connected “widely separated points in the business district,” from the capitol to the intersection of Peachtree and 10th streets, or out Ponce de Leon Avenue to the Sears building.
