DC Circulator Extends Hours to Capitol Hill Route

Due to the high demand of the DC Circulator bus service in Capitol Hill on evenings and weekends, the service hours will be extended for the Union Station-Navy Yard (Blue) route starting in April. The bus used to run regular service from 6:00am – 7:00pm on weekdays only, and extended service until midnight on Washington Nationals baseball game days. Now the Union Station-Navy Yard service hours will be 6:00am-9:00pm weekdays and 7:00am-9:00pm on Saturdays, with extended service until midnight on Nationals game days still in effect.

The promotional theme for the Circulator this summer will be “Join the Local Movement” which hopes to generate an increase in ridership by encouraging residents to use the Circulator to support the many great local businesses, festivals, cultural events, and landmarks that DC has to offer.

Do you use the Circulator to get around Capitol Hill? Are you looking forward to the service extension? We’d love to hear your thoughts on how you use the Circulator.
