Capital Transit White Super Power Motor Coach and PCC Streetcar at Peace Monument (1940s). These buses served nearly every bus line on the system. Washington had nearly 1,000 PCCs.

In tribute to Washington's use of PCC streetcars, this ex-Newark streetcar currently running in heritage streetcar service in San Francisco wears DC Transit colors. I hope Washington buys a PCC and repaints it in DC Transit colors to run on the H Street-Benning Road Line as a tribute.

A sad day... last day of streetcars in Washington DC was January 28, 1962. This car was one of nearly 1,000 PCCs that operated in Washington and the Maryland suburbs.
