Media Contact

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT)'s Office of Communications, a division of the DDOT Office of the Director, represents and promotes the agency and its administration, employees, programs and policies to a variety of internal and external constituents. The office provides strategic communications consultation, media relations efforts, strategic web communications and event planning services on behalf of DDOT, its employees, administrators, programs and staff; and coordinates activities to promote DC officials and expertise to internal and external constituencies.

The office leads on publicity efforts for the agency. A dedicated staff drafts press releases, media and traffic advisories, fact sheets, OP-EDs, social media content, and other materials that publicize news from programs, research and the agency. We promote stories to reporters and distribute information to news organizations in the Washington, DC, region, throughout the country, and around the world.
