First DDOT Streetcar Open House Meeting a Success

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Transit Future signOn Thursday night, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) kicked off its two-week blitz of streetcar open house meetings across the city with its first meeting in Ward 6.  In a brief presentation, Scott Kubly, who is leading DDOT’s streetcar project, unveiled a map of a proposed 37-mile network of streetcars across the city and spoke of the many benefits streetcars would bring to the District.  DDOT Director Gabe Klein, told attendees that since DDOT reinvigorated the streetcar project over the summer, the agency has been working 3-4 times faster on this project than it was previously.

Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells, who has been the leading proponent of streetcars on the D.C. Council, called streetcars the “next generation” of transit.  He said streetcars would be a vast improvement of our transit network and would be much better for the city than simply making incremental improvements to existing bus service.

DDOT is holding meetings in the other seven wards between now and November 4 (Beyond DC has a handy map of all the meeting locations).  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 26 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in Ward 1 at the Columbia Heights Education Campus, 3101 16th Street, NW.

The Ward 6 meeting also was covered in a thorough blog post on Greater Greater Washington (which includes a good map) and in a brief segment on WAMU radio this morning.
