On Saturday, September 17, 2016, the DC Circulator hosted its second Semiannual “Meet the Rider” event at the H Street Festival. More than 1,400 community members of all ages stopped by the Circulator tent to learn more about its system.
Throughout the day, the DC Circulator team educated current riders and non-riders about the additional extended service hours due to SafeTrack (starting October 2), solicited feedback on proposed routes (as part of the upcoming Transit Development Plan 2017 update) and conducted 200 surveys assessing the National Mall Route.
The DC Circulator team also welcomed 357 new subscribers to its quarterly newsletter distribution list to learn more about the system and stay up to date on service changes. Participants received system maps, free ride coupons, and Circulator “swag” such as reusable bags and hand sanitizer. Younger Circulator participants took home balloon animals from the Circulator’s Balloon Artist.
If you were unable to attend, we still welcome your questions and feedback.
