Streetcars Near New Phase of Testing

April 28, 2014

The D.C. Streetcar is nearing a new phase of testing. And while there’s no date set for passenger service, officials say they are looking toward summer. Thomas Perry, DDOT project manager for the Streetcar, said they are currently in the “functional acceptance testing” stage, “which verifies that what we designed and what we built matches up, and also that the cars work with the actual system.” Perry said they are “nearing the end of that phase” and “gearing up” to enter “systems integration testing.” The first kind of testing deals with construction, the latter operations.
