Czech Streetcars in America

The U.S. capital is reviving its streetcar network after nearly fifty years, purchasing its first, three streetcars from the Czech Republic for its planned lines in Anacostia and along H Street. Manufactured by the Inekon Group, the cars are able to operate in mixed traffic, quickly connecting neighborhoods. Such streetcars cover a route length of 335 miles in the Czech capital of Prague, a system in operation since 1891. These days, this environmentally friendly mode of transportation is making a comeback across the Atlantic in many U.S. cities beyond Washington, DC.  Czech streetcars already cruise along the streets of San Francisco, Portland, Tacoma, and Seattle.
