Prediction: In 20 years, Anacostia will still have no streetcars, while lines sprout downtown, between Metro and Joint Base Anacostia, and between Metro and DHS/St. E's.

DC Streetcar is moving the four cars onto the H Street Line, which will open some time when pigs fly. Meanwhile, DDOT is spending nearly $4.5 million to study streetcar options on these lines:
  • M Street Southeast and Southwest, from the 11th Street Bridge to the Southwest Waterfront.
  • K and H streets NW between Union Station and Georgetown.
Anacostia, the most transit-dependent area of the city and which was promised the first streetcar line, still has nothing. And nothing is being planned.
