New DC Streetcar Tool Highlights H Street NE/Benning Road NE Attractions for Residents, Tourists

(Washington, DC) — Today, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) launched a new H/Benning corridor guide for DC Streetcar passengers. This online feature of the DC Streetcar’s website showcases offerings for both residents and tourists, including restaurants, shops, entertainment, and specialty services near each stop along the streetcar route.

The H Street and Benning Road community continues to experience economic growth, with new development and construction planned throughout the corridor. The online business guide is designed to help passengers discover all the activities available along the system’s eight stops while also bringing attention to long-standing and well-loved institutions in the area.

“This resource reflects DDOT’s investment in the business community and the positive impact of the streetcar. H/Benning is a thriving DC neighborhood and I look forward to more people having the opportunity to experience it using the DC Streetcar business page as a guide,” said Anwar Saleem, Executive Director of H Street Main Street.

As investment in the community continues, the page will be updated. The tool can be found at here.
