Success: No bike ban on streetcar guideways
Good news! DDOT released a second draft of proposed rules regarding streetcars today. This draft no longer includes language banning bicycles from the streetcar guideway. This is good news for several reasons:
- It means that this poorly thought out policy won’t be implemented.
- It avoids setting a precedent that would allow the District to ignore its own Complete Streets policy
- It reaffirms that the public input process, though frustrating at times, does work. More than 800 of you sent emails to DDOT on this issue, and the agency listened.
