You can induce people out of their cars by making driving worse (congestion) or by making transit better.

I find it somewhat ironic that someone would mention "making driving worse" as a way to induce people out of their cars. That's the same as "social engineering"...the same sort of thing that transit advocates claim the highway development of the past 50 years has done.

"Making transit better" is clearly the way to go.

As for the streetcars, I think Jasper mentioned this already, but I find it both strange and shortsighted that DC proposes connections into Maryland, but does not propose a connection across the Key Bridge into Rosslyn. That one, to me, is a no-brainer, and would be a good way to add at least some capacity over the Potomac, relieve pressure on the Orange/Blue lines, and cost a lot less than the oft-mentioned new Blue Line tunnel.
