Winter Wonder Bus Rider Tips

The Winter Wonder Bus will operate on its assigned route schedule as a part of regular DC Circulator service. All DC Circulator service and rider policies continue to apply to the Winter Wonder Bus. Please note, in order to remain on-time, the bus cannot hold at any stops for extended periods.

Here’s a few tips to ensure you can enjoy the magic of the Winter Wonder Bus this holiday season

  1. Plan ahead to ensure you’re at the right place at the right time to see or board the bus. Follow the route schedule on this page and check the Wonder Bus Whereabout Map to plan your trip accordingly.
  2. Taking photos of the bus or inside the bus is encouraged. However, interior pictures should be taken when the bus is stopped. Photo ops cannot interrupt passenger service. The best opportunities to take pictures are at our two upcoming holiday events for scheduled photo sessions inside the bus. Don’t’ forget to post your images online with #WinterWonderBus!
  3. Remember that the purpose of the Winter Wonder Bus is to spread cheer around the streets of DC. Kindness and politeness go a long way and we ask that of both our operators and our riders as we enter this new year!
