"Transportation Freedom" in our nation's capital

We are beginning the fight for passenger rail and, in a larger sense, a diversified transit system that promotes freedom of choice here in Cincinnati. In the nation's capital they are celebrating the fact that they have a truly diversified transit system that offers consumer choice.

Washington D.C. currently boasts the first and largest bike sharing program in the United States, bike lanes and parking facilities, the Washington Metro, an expansive city bus system, sidewalk and trail connectivity, and is currently working on introducing modern streetcars to the city.

In this video Washington D.C. Department of Transportation director, Gabe Klein, talks about the city's diversified transit options and emphasizes the importance of such a system for American cities.

Some time ago, I spent about 5 days in DC. I think I used my car once. The subway can get a tourist just anywhere they want to go.
Driving in DC is the pits.
