D.C. streetcar

D.C. streetcar

It’s an idea that dates to the tenure of Mayor Marion Barry, gained momentum under Mayor Adrian Fenty, stalled out under Mayor Vincent Gray, and will start running under Mayor Muriel Bowser. Last week, we learned that the long-awaited 2.2-mile, $200 million, streetcar along H Street in NE D.C. will start running this coming Saturday, February 27. We talk with the Director of DDOT about what riders can expect.
