On several previous visits to Washington, D.C. I never got around to tracking the DC Streetcar down. From inside Union Station find escalators by Amtrak information desk located in middle of boarding area – then head up second escalators towards bus boarding. Take sidewalk past buses to street – look across and you will find DC Streetcar.
Before leaving DC to Chicago on Amtrak Capitol Limited – I had a bit of time to explore Union Station and take a streetcar ride. I didn’t realize when I boarded I wouldn’t be going anywhere soon. Driver after a bit pointed out a car accident that was directly on tracks. Until that was cleared operations were halted. So while I boarded the DC Streetcar – I’ve technically still not ridden it.
