About DC Circulator’s 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 plan outlines service changes aimed to better align DDOT resources with growing activity centers and improve the reliability of DC Circulator service. DDOT expects the proposed changes to be implemented in 2023.
