Duke St. Pedestrian Tunnel Connects Carlyle to Metro
Carlyle property owners built the Duke Street Tunnel in order to provide safe pedestrian access to the King Street Metro station. For ten years, CCC has provided security staff and security cameras so pedestrians can safely traverse under the highly traveled Duke Street without waiting through long stoplights and traffic congestion. The hours of operation for the tunnel are 5 am. – 10 pm Monday through Friday and 9 am – 7 pm on Saturdays. The tunnel is closed on Sundays and federal holidays.
SmartTrip Card Subsidy Program
CCC provides SmarTrip card subsidies to participating employers and residential properties in Carlyle to reduce cost of commuting for their respective workers and residents. CCC can offer free SmarTrip cards, some pre-loaded, to incentivize people to sign up. Then CCC reimburses participating Carlyle employers and residential properties each month based on SmarTrip card usage.
