The District Department of Transportation today announced plans to provide additional hours of operation on the DC Circulator to offset WMATA’s SafeTrack service reductions. The expanded service will begin Sunday, October 2. This will assist riders during SafeTrack Surge 10, which will eliminate Red Line service between Fort Totten and NoMa from October 29 through November 22, 2016. The expanded DC Circulator service is designed to provide travelers with additional commuting options.
The following changes will be made beginning Sunday, October 2, 2016:
- Morning service on the Woodley Park-Adams Morgan-McPherson Square, the Georgetown-Union Station and the Dupont Circle- Georgetown-Rosslyn routes will begin an hour earlier at 6 am Monday through Friday.
- Late night service will be extended on the Georgetown-Union Station and the Dupont Circle-Georgetown- Rosslyn routes until 3 am Friday and Saturday instead of 2 am.
- The Woodley Park-Adams Morgan-McPherson Square will continue to run until 3:30 am.
- Late night service on the Georgetown-Union Station route will be extended to run the full length of the route. Currently, the bus stops at McPherson Square Metro after 9 pm
