The Expanded Streetcar System (ESS) consists of additional lines beyond the 22-mile priority system, with extensions that will reach all eight Wards and connect neighborhoods with new opportunities (it was previously referred to as the 37-mile system). The ESS was identified in the Streetcar System Plan (2014 Update) and serves as a technical refinement to the DC Transit Future System Plan (2010 Update). It is intended to achieve the following:

  • Incorporate recent planning, transportation, and development initiatives
  • Provide an operating strategy and implementation plan to support the vision
  • Identify expansion areas based on recent developments in or adjacent to the District
  • Develop an action plan and funding strategies for full system implementation
