Dear DC Circulator riders,

We are committed to continuing safe and reliable bus transit service to residents and commuters.

Following Federal guidance, masks are now optional aboard our DC Circulator buses.

In addition, DDOT and RATP Dev, the contractor that operates the DC Circulator, have continued to implement enhanced cleaning protocols to ensure that all buses are properly deep cleaned and disinfected.

When taking the DC Circulator, please take the following precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Once onboard, practice social distancing (keep 6 feet distance between you and others whenever possible) as recommended by DC Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

For the most up-to-date information on DC Circulator operations, please sign up to receive service alerts on our website at and follow us on Twitter @dccirculator.
