D.C. wants input on privatized streetcar system
The D.C. streetcar line should be up and running on H Street next summer, and the District is open to potentially privatizing the system.
The District Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that it was seeking information from the private sector, issuing a Request for Information seeking feedback on the proposed schedule, financial plans and the overall project.
The request stresses that it is just an inquiry, not any sort of contract or agreement. Still, the responses could impact the Districtís plans for the project and perhaps lead to privatized elements down the line.
