As the District Department of Transportation tries to get the streetcars running, meet the District residents who will drive them.

DDOT introduced nine streetcar operators in a new video promoted today. The drivers share their thoughts about the service in the upbeat minute-and-a-half-long clip.

“We are just making sure the public knows that we’re here. So far, everything is going good,” one operator says.

“Looking forward to seeing you on a D.C. Streetcar, riding with us,” another driver says in the “Meet the Operators” video. “Let’s share the road and enjoy transportation, because I got your ride!”

DDOT and the State Safety Oversight Office are locked in a struggle over safety documentation, The Washington Post reported. The oversight office has accused DDOT of filing misleading documentation. Officials are still aiming to start passenger service this week.
