Planning efforts for the future of the system explained

Circulator 10-Year Transit Development Plan

The DC Circulator plan identifies priority corridors for service improvement and expansion over the next 5 to 10 years. It recommends specific routes to receive new or enhanced service over the next 3 years. The plan was finalized in March 2011.

To support the development of the plan, DDOT and its partners completed the following steps:

  • Evaluated the existing DC Circulator system through rider surveys and operational analyses
  • Analyzed current and forecasted demographic, economic and land use data and plans
  • Established a community advisory panel to provide input on the goals of the system and future priorities
  • Conducted focus groups with riders and non-riders and interview key stakeholders
  • Developed long-term priority corridors and short-term service recommendations
  • Heald public meetings to report findings to the public
