C100 Testimony before Council regarding DDOT Oversight

Monte Edwards

The Committee of 100’s recommends that a comprehensive freight, passenger and commuter Rail Plan for the District of Columbia be developed.  Currently, we are the only state without a Rail Plan, yet we are a growing hub for all kinds of rail transportation. A Rail Plan would help coordinate and plan for implementation of rail projects in the context of other DC issues, such as alternatives to automobile commuting, auto congestion, air quality, parking.
