The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced that the DC Streetcar has served three million passengers since opening in February 2016. As DC Streetcar nears the third anniversary of passenger service along the H/Benning corridor, plans to expand the 2.4 mile system continue to move forward.

"Mayor Bowser's top priority when we launched DC Streetcar was to deliver a system that was safe and would create new transit options for residents and visitors of our ever growing city," said DDOT Director Jeff Marootian. "The ridership numbers and tremendous economic development we've seen along the H-Street corridor support the decision to move forward with the project."

DC Streetcar’s Car Barn Training Center has also been lauded this year, winning two architectural awards: an Engineering News-Record Award of Merit and Urban Land Institute Washington’s Excellence in Institutional Development Award.
