Ride the Circulator for Free Today

From Dr. Gridlock: Good day to check out the downtown bus routes known as the DC Circulator. Today, it's free. Part of the celebration of its first anniversary in service. Normally, it's a pretty good bargain: $1 flat fare.

There's an east-west and a north-south route and a loop around the Mall. The east-west runs between Georgetown and Union Station and the north-south between Water Street and the Convention Center area.

Buses run every five to 10 minutes, so there's no posted schedule. The vehicles are a very interesting design, not typically seen around here.

Think I'll go out and try one now. Curious about whether the passengers are tourists or locals or a mix. Seems like it would be very useful to both.
