DC Circulator Upgrades Service to SW Waterfront

The DC Circulator will roll out new route adjustments next month designed to improve access to the Southwest Waterfront and enhance service overall.

The DC Department of Transportation said that beginning on June 24, there will be a new route connecting Eastern Market to L’Enfant Plaza, and another connecting Congress Heights to Union Station. These new routes will include stops at Barracks Row, the Navy Yard, and Anacostia. It will still cost $1 to ride the DC Circulator.

The new routes come as the DC Circulator has added 40 new buses to the fleet, including 14 battery operated buses that went into service on May 1.

There will also be adjustments to service hours.

  • Eastern Market – L’Enfant Plaza Metro route: 6 am – 9 pm on weekdays and 7 am - 9 pm on weekends.
  • Congress Heights – Union Station route: 6 am - 9 pm on weekdays and 7 am - 9 pm on weekends.
  • Georgetown – Union Station route: year-round late-night service between McPherson Square and Union Station from 9 pm to 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays.
