DC Circulator Bus Extension in Georgetown to Launch Monday
From Erik Linden, DDOT:
1. DC Circulator Bus Extension in Georgetown to Launch Monday
2. Smithsonian/National Gallery of Art Route Resumes Daily Schedule on March 26
As previously announced, the DC Circulator bus will extend its East/West route to take on the Georgetown Metro Connection "Blue Bus" Foggy Bottom line beginning Monday, March 26, 2007.
The Georgetown Metro Connection, fondly referred to as the "Blue Bus," was launched five years ago by the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID), to link Georgetown to the three closest Metro stations - Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle and Rosslyn. It was a precursor to the DC Circulator bus, demonstrating the high demand for efficient neighborhood-based surface transportation.
In an effort to provide the best and most efficient means of bus transportation in and around Georgetown , the District Department of Transportation - in partnership with the Georgetown BID - will conduct a six month trial to extend the Circulator's route.
The demonstration project will run through September 30, 2007 and if deemed successful will become an ongoing route. The Georgetown BID will continue to run its Blue Bus on the long-established Roslyn to Dupont Circle route.
Also, please note that the Circulator's Smithsonian/National Gallery of Art Route will resume running seven days a week on Monday March 26 as part of its seasonal change. The Smithsonian/National Gallery of Art Loop will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
