Why Streetcars:
DC is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. As the population continues to increase, so does the number of people who use public transportation.  Local investments in transportation are paying off.  The District’s investments are providing more transportation choices across the region–including car and bike sharing–while residents are better utilizing public transportation and walking to work, make DC a more sustainable city.

DC Streetcar:

  • FACILITATES travel for District residents, workers and visitors
  • COMPLEMENTS existing transit options
  • Creates neighborhood CONNECTIONS where they currently do not exist
  • Provides reliable, predictable and high quality TRANSIT SERVICE
