The District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT), in partnership with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), has developed the DC’s Transit Future System Plan to establish a new, efficient, high-quality surface-transit network that supports community and economic development initiatives and connects residents and neighborhoods to employment centers, commercial areas, recreational facilities, and multimodal transportation hubs. The recommended plan includes a network of new streetcar lines operating in eight corridors, a transitway with reserved lanes for transit along K Street NW, as well as new Metro Express limited-stop bus service operating in 13 corridors across the city.

 The District of Columbia has entered an exciting new period of its history. The District hasrecovered from decades of declining population and is growing again. Neighborhoods acrossthe city are reemerging and adding people, jobs and retail. Other neighborhoods are poisedfor growth and await the right catalyst. This rebirth has created challenges for the District’sinfrastructure, and we need to make the transportation investments that will support ourrecent growth and further strengthen our neighborhoods. This plan is the culmination of a five-year effort to identify transit challenges and opportunitiesand recommend appropriate investment to meet these challenges and capitalize onopportunities. This plan lays out a series of investments in Metro Express limited-stop busservice and articulates a vision for a 37-mile streetcar system. The
DC’s Transit Future System Plan
has already made significant improvements to themobility of District of Columbia residents and workers. New Metro Express limited-stop busservices, in coordination with local Metrobus routes, now provide faster and more convenienttransit service along key transportation corridors within the District. The District has alsostarted construction on its first streetcar lines. Continued transit improvements are in theworks as the
DC’s Transit Future System Plan
addresses both current and future challenges. These new services will join our DC Circulator bus service and bike sharing program to form anew, local transit network. DDOT looks forward to continued engagement with the communityas we bring these plans to fruition. ____________________________Gabe Klein, DirectorDistrict Department of Transportation
