In September 2010, the District of Columbia and Arlington County launched Capital Bikeshare as one of the first large-scale bikeshare systems in North America.

Palisades Trolley Trail Feasibility Study

The Palisades Trolley Trail is located along the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) owned Right-of-Way (ROW) of the former Glen Echo Trolley Line northwest of Georgetown. The ROW has operated as an informal and disconnected walking trail behind homes in Palisades and Foxhall. The one remaining trolley bridge, the Foundry Branch Trolley Trestle Bridge, is a contributing resource in the historic Glover-Archbold Park and is in danger of collapse. In 2018, concerns by historic preservation and other groups about the potential demolition of the bridge led DDOT to undertake a study to determine whether the Foundry Branch Trolley Trestle Bridge could be repurposed into a bicycle-pedestrian bridge as part of a connected multi-use trail as proposed in moveDC, DDOT’s long-range transportation plan.
