From June 3 to September 27, 2019, a bus lane pilot is coming to H and I Streets NW downtown between Pennsylvania Avenue and 13th Street NW. During this period, the right curb‐side lane will operate as a bus lane during the AM and PM peak periods, from 7AM‐9:30AM and 4PM‐6:30PM on weekdays. Beginning June 3, road markings and signage will mark the right‐hand curbside lanes on H and I Streets as “Bus Only,” and red paint will be applied to the pavement. Red paint on the road anywhere in the District means the lane is restricted to buses or other authorized users for at least part of the day. Signs will indicate when restrictions apply.
The DFHV has launched the Taxi-to-Rail (T2R) pilot program for DC residents of Ward 7 and Ward 8 in the 20019, 20020, and 20032 zip codes. The service will offer residents a $4.00 taxicab trip to and from their home to the Deanwood, Minnesota Avenue, Capitol Heights, Benning Road, Anacostia, Congress Heights, Southern Avenue, and Naylor Road Metro stations. Interested residents must register for the program and submit proof of residency to acquire at T2R ID number needed to take each trip.
Taxicab operators who have vehicles that are older than eight (8) model years but less than ten (10) model years may complete an application to waive the eight-year vehicle age retirement requirement. Administrative Issuance AI-2019-01 outlines the eligibility criteria and procedures to obtain a waiver. The charge is $100.00, which includes the license renewal fee. If you have any questions, you may call (202) 645-7300; or email DFHV.ClientServices@dc.gov.
