DDOT offers a variety of resources that support bicyclists and pedestrians.
Carsharing is a network of privately owned vehicles that are rented by the hour or day.
DDOT promotes the safety of the commuting public by offering safety programs and information to District residents.
DDOT provides a broad array of transit services for residents, workers and visitors to efficiently and affordably move around the District
DDOT has management and oversight responsibility for the use and occupancy of public space. This is defined as all the publicly owned property between the property lines on a street, and includes the roadway, tree spaces, sidewalks and alleys.
DDOT plays a key role in helping the District and its residents prepare for emergencies including events or threats that might require the evacuation of the city.
DDOT's Traffic Operations Administration keeps the traffic signals running, and vehicles moving on the District's 1,100 miles of roadway, clears snow and ice from the streets, helps prepare the city for large-scale emergencies and evacuations, and manages the District's inventory of parking spaces.
