Photos: See DC's Streetcars Close Up

DDOT is giving us a chance to see the Districts new streetcars up close this week. They've set up shop in the 10th and H parking lot (the future City Center DC) and are showing off the new public transit vehicle as well other successes like Circulator and SmartBike. The mini showcase is happening every day and ends Saturday. 11am-7pm today and Friday and until 5pm on Saturday.

You can board the streetcar and get more information about routes, time lines and infrastructure issues in a tented information room across the lot. Nice work by the city here keeping us informed and laying the groundwork for the needed support in the fight to install some sort of power infrastructure, most likely through overhead wires. Personally, I can't wait! So cool.
