Extended BID Service Hours

Capitol Hill BID has received SBA PPP funds and is happy to announce extended BID service hours during the popular Summer months!

This summer is already proving to be a busy one with travel and other pandemic restrictions lifted, we’re expecting more visitors and more usage of our restaurants and parks and other amenities. Our Safety Ambassador team had 6,500 contacts in June 2021 - the highest level since the same period in 2019! Additionally, the newly renovated Eastern Market Metro Park has become a major community destination. 

The extra service hours will cover the entire BID area with special focus on particularly highly utilized areas such as Eastern Market Plaza & 7th Street, certain blocks on Pennsylvania Avenue & 8th Street, around the Union Station and 2nd & Massachusetts Avenue, NE areas. All other areas will receive special attention as we move through the next several months and additional resources can be reallocated as needed.

As of July 14, the "men in blue" and Safety Ambassadors will be providing services to the community from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Not only will this help further our mission of "Clean and Safe", it also gives our team members the opportunity to earn extra income with overtime hours.

“Before joining the Capitol Hill BID team I had to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. Now, especially with the opportunity to work overtime, I am able to stay ahead on bills and even pay some things in advance” - Alan W., Clean Team Member
