At lunch time, tune in and call in to Kojo Nmadi. Tommy Wells will be on WAMU’s Politics Hour today from 12:30 – 1:00 pm to talk streetcars in DC. Tune in at 88.5 FM, or stream it online. Call into the show at 1-800-433-8850 or send your email/comment in advance to to show your support.

After work, check out the streetcar display and get on the Trolley with Tommy Wells. End your day with a tour of the new streetcar on display downtown (9th & H Sts NW) at 5:30 pm. Trolleys wil run from the Atlas (1333 H St) to the streetcar display from 4-5 pm. Tommy Wells, Kwame Brown, and DDOT Director Gabe Klein will lead a tour of the streetcar display.

After the tour, hop on board for a special trolley ride back to the H Street Corridor for a happy hour special event at SOVA Espresso & Wine (1359 H St) and it will also have a drop off point in front of Toyland (421 H St).
