525

DC has expanded the Taxi-to-Rail (T2R) pilot program to give more transportation options to residents in neighborhoods East of the Anacostia River. The number of Metro stations served has increased from eight to 10 with the addition of the Potomac Avenue and Navy Yard stations. In addition, a new T2R service will provide trips to and from locations such as grocery stores, libraries and recreation centers. T2R provides passengers with a free taxicab ride of up to $10 to or from Anacostia, Congress Heights, Benning Road, Deanwood, Minnesota Avenue, Southern Avenue, Capitol Heights and Naylor Road Metro stations. Residents can set up a ride by calling 202-727-3827 or going to Taxi2Rail.com. Rides also can be booked through the EZRidr app. Wheelchair accessible vehicles are also available. More information about T2R can be found at dfhv.dc.gov. The pilot runs through Sept. 30, 2019.
