The 2020 Transit Development Plan

DC Circulator’s mission is to deliver affordable, comfortable, and efficient bus service that connects people to business, culture, and entertainment throughout the District. To support this mission, DC Circulator adopted its first Transit Development Plan in 2011 and has since regularly updated it every three years.

The most recent version, the 2020 Transit Development Plan, is available now for public comment.*

The plan outlines service changes aimed to better align District Department of Transportation (DDOT) resources with growing activity centers and improve the reliability of DC Circulator service. DDOT expects the proposed changes to be implemented in 2023.
