The Crystal City / Route 1 Streetcar
When is the Crystal City Transitway expected to convert to Streetcar service?
Alexandria recently decided to focus it's financial resources on the Potomac Yard Metrorail station, so at this time the Arlington section of the transitway is expected to convert to Streetcar service first, followed by the Alexandria section. Under the proposed plan, Arlington would have its Crystal City streetcar segment constructed and under operation by 2018 or 2019, with Alexandria's Potomac Yard streetcar
segment, if chosen to be implemented, potentially able to be completed and operable approximately two years later.
