We who live, work and play along the u street corridor hope that this circulator line will be extended from dupont circle to u st, providing a quick bus connection between u st, Adams Morgan, dupont and Georgetown, filling a gap in the dc bus network, and providing an alternative to the congested green line red line transfer at gallery place.

This is the bus I take every day. I live in ADMO, work in Rosslyn. I walk or take the 42 Bus to DuPont and hop on this bus from there.

The old Georgetowner bus was awesome. Never more then a 10 minute wait, since it was a small bus it got through traffic easy, .$50 each way, never crowded and you were allowed to bring drinks on it.

Metro took over two days ago and has already screwed everything up.

The new Circulator does NOT run every 10 minuets as they said they would. I've sat at both Rosslyn and Dupont for over 20 minuets in the last two days, just waiting for the bus to leave. At each stop the driver has had to explain to passengers that they only go to Dupont. Since the bus is bigger it has a harder time getting through traffic. This all meaning my 30 minute door to door commute is now hovering closer to an hour each way!!

Also, no more iced coffee on the bus in the morning. I knew this was coming but it sucks now that it's here.

Finally - How they went from a small to large bus, yet it is now twice as crowded as it ever was before is beyond me. Only WMATA could pull off a magic act like that.
