The future


Metro is looking into reintroducing streetcars in DC.
The current draft is that one line would run down florida avenue.


Corridor 3: American University to Skyland SE. Beginning at Ward Circle, this transit route would go southeast down Massachusetts Avenue NW, turn east on Garfield Street NW, south on 29th Street NW, and east on Calvert Street NW across Rock Creek Park. At Adams Morgan, the alignment would turn south down 18th Street NW, east on U Street NW, southeast onto Florida Avenue NW/NE, and south onto 8th Street NE/SE. Finally, the route would turn east on M Street SE, cross the 11th Street Bridge, and turn east on Good Hope Road, terminating at Skyland Place SE.
