Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell assisted the DC Department of Transportation (DDOT) in completing the construction, commissioning, and start of passenger service for the DC Streetcar in early 2016. This project represents the return of streetcars to Washington, DC, after a hiatus of over 50 years. It is the first in several proposed phases of work to establish an extensive network of routes throughout the City. The Firm’s attorneys assisted DDOT in negotiations with the Federal Transit Administration and the local safety oversight agency to establish safety management systems for the new service.
