About the Blossom Bus

Spring 2018 marks the arrival of the third annual DC Circulator #BlossomBus. Every year one of our newest buses gets dressed up in a custom pink wrap, reminding residents and visitors of the District how easy it is to bus to the blossoms with Circulator.


Starting at Union Station, the National Mall route provides direct access to the Tidal Basin, where most of the cherry blossoms trees are blooming in beauty. Rides cost just $1 per trip, and buses arrive every 10 minutes.


This year is also the very first time the #BlossomBus will make an appearance at the National Cherry Blossom Festival annual parade.


Look out for the #BlossomBus from March 18 – April 14. When you see the #BlossomBus making its way around town, snap a pic of the bus and tag us in the photo using the hashtag #BlossomBus on Facebook or Twitter. We’ll be reposting your photos all month long!
