Transportation and Public Infrastructure


ANC 2B’s Transportation and Public Infrastructure (TPI) Committee meets on the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 pm at the Dupont Circle Resource Center, 9 Dupont Circle NW.

Commissioners Scott Davies and Randy Downs serve as the Co-Chairs of the Committee.


Committee Overview

Adopted by ANC 2B on March 12, 2014

Policy Issue: Safe and effective transportation of all modes is a significant priority for local government and for the residents and businesses of Dupont Circle. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT), in coordination with other agencies, maintains the transportation system while protecting and improving the use of public space in the District. The Dupont Circle ANC lacks a structured method to address transportation, traffic and public space issues.

Committee Purpose Statement: The Transportation and Public Infrastructure (TPI) Committee will promote a safe and effective transportation system for the residents and visitors of Dupont Circle and improve the use of public space in our neighborhood.

Role of the Committee: The committee will serve as a forum for discussing matters related to the following and will make recommendations to the ANC:

  • Parking in the neighborhood, including valet applications, loading zones, the enhanced residential parking program and visitor parking
  • Pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and safety
  • Beautification, repair and streetscapes
  • Public transit
  • Public parks
  • Matters before the DC Council related to transportation and public space

The committee will serve as a resource for commissioners and as a point of contact for DDOT, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Administration (WMATA) and the DC Water and Sewer Authority (WASA). Commissioners may seek guidance from the committee on public space applications in their Single Member Districts. The committee will facilitate training for commissioners and others on transportation issues and host meetings to gather public input. The committee will also develop guidance for consideration of public space issues for review by the ANC.

Committee Membership: The committee will be chaired by an ANC 2B Commissioner and should have broad representation from the resident and business community of Dupont Circle.

ANCs 2A, 2B, 2E, and 2F Announce Joint Town Hall on DDOT’s Dockless Bikeshare Program

Advisory Neighborhood Commissions 2A, 2B, 2E, and 2F have announced that they will hold a joint town hall to discuss the District Department of Transportation’s (DDOT) current dockless bikeshare demonstration program. The four ANCs, which collectively cover the Foggy Bottom, West End, Dupont Circle, Georgetown, Burleith, Hillandale, and Logan Circle neighborhoods, have received many requests to have a more in-depth discussion with DDOT about the program and thus believe that this town hall will provide an ideal opportunity to do so.

There will be an open house with representatives from the five bikeshare companies currently operating in DC (Mobike, LimeBike, Jump, Spin, and ofo) at 7:00 pm and the town hall will begin at 7:30 pm.

The School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens is located a short walk from the Foggy Bottom–GWU station on Metrorail’s blue, orange, and silver lines and from the Dupont Circle station on the red line, as well as a short walk from multiple major Metrobus and DC Circulator routes.

During the town hall, DDOT representatives will be give a presentation regarding the current operations of the demonstration program and any results that the agency has collected thus far. Ample time will be given for community members to ask questions and make comments regarding the program.

More information regarding the demonstration program can be found here. A promotional flyer for the town hall can be found here.
