PSA: Propose Your Own Tagline for the D.C. Streetcar and Win Stuff

The District Department of Transportation has just put out a call for public input on a tagline for the coming streetcar. Unfortunately, you've got just six options to choose from, and we're not huge fans of them. ("Let's Go!"? "District at Your Doorstep"?)

We think you can do better. So take to the comments and submit your own taglines for the streetcar. Silly and serious suggestions alike are fair game. The top few submissions will appear in next week's paper, and the person with our favorite idea wins a free City Paper T-shirt.

And who knows? The paper comes out before DDOT's survey response deadline, so maybe they'll change their minds and go with one of your ideas instead.

Now have at it—tag, you're it.
