When looking at plans for many routes they do not fill in the gaps of metrorail. One some of the routes pass metro stations on the same line that's not filling in gaps.

If you overlayed the streetcar planned routes over a DC map you would see that it does not fill in gaps as some areas that need service are not near Metrorail to begin with. If they were truly trying to filling in the gaps there would be streetcars on every major street in DC. Areas that are or near Ft. Lincoln, New York Ave, DC/MD border all would be places to fill in gaps but none are even mentioned in plans.

Most of the lines are basically bus routes or a combination of bus routes that were discontinued over the years. The benning rd/h street line is basically the former x4 bus route; the other planned routes are just combinations of already present bus routes. They do not give service to areas not served and basically duplicate current bus service or bus service with one transfer
