District of Columbia Citywide Bicycle Map


Recommended Posts

Emeka Moneme, acting Director of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), released DDOT’s two new maps: “Washington, DC: The American Experience,” and the updated “Washington, DC, Bicycle Map.”


The new citywide map is the first city map ever produced using GIS: Geographic Information Systems technology. It clearly outlines District streets in an easy-to-read format. The reverse side provides detailed bus and Emergency Snow and Evacuation routes and other useful information. The updated bicycle map includes the latest, easy-to-read information on bicycle lanes, off-street trails and planned city bicycling trails.


“I’m very excited about both of DDOT’s new maps,” said Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, who is featured on both maps with a welcome message.


Fenty added: “The maps are a great way to help navigate through the District of Columbia, or just to admire our wide array of landmarks, our two rivers, bicycle trails and city parks. It is my hope that residents across the District will find them both very useful.”


In addition to transportation information, the map employs data made available by the District of Columbia Geographic Information System program (DC GIS) of the Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO). The Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) also partnered with DDOT in designing the maps.


DDOT added eight miles of bicycle lanes since the previous edition of the bicycle map and made the background of the new map lighter to accentuate the bike lanes, existing trails and future trails. DDOT also added the location of city recreation centers.
