The District has extended the period of time to comment on a series of changes to the D.C. Circulator routes and schedules.
The public now has until February 9 to weigh in on the proposed changes, which include the reconfiguration of two routes, new service to Eastern Market, and the addition of late weekend service on some routes.
The District announced the changes in December and held a public hearing on January 4.
- The Union Station – Navy Yard Metro bus would no longer serve Union Station. Instead, the bus would connect Eastern Market with L’Enfant Plaza, stopping at Barracks Row, M Streets SE/SW and the Waterfront Metro station. This bus would also have new Saturday and Sunday service, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The new route would be called “Eastern Market - L’Enfant Plaza.”
- The Potomac Avenue/Skyland via Barracks Row bus would instead connect Union Station and Congress Heights via Barracks Row and Downtown Anacostia. The route would also get permanent Saturday and Sunday service from 7 a.m. - 9 p.m. The new route would be called “Union Station – Congress Heights Metro.”
- The Georgetown-Union Station route would add late night service from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, but only between McPherson Square and Union Station.
