Transit Campaign

Learn more about the DC Streetcar

Did you know that the Streetcar, Metro Access, and the Circulator are all contracted out by the city to multi-national private firms? Because of this, the workers do not receive the same benefits of Metro employees who work for the city. While providing a public service, the privatized transit workers receive low wages, poor benefits and no retirement. WIN believes that those who “move our city” should be treated better. WIN leaders are meeting with DC Council Members to create change and fight for better benefits alongside workers.

If you want to learn more about the DC Streetcar, Circulator, WMATA and the effects of privatization you can look at our One Pager.
