DC Expanding Circulator Bus
The District and Metro are taking several steps that will increase the Circulator bus service.
Metro's finance committee approved a plan to end regular Metrobus service on Route 98, which links the Adams Morgan and U Street entertainment areas in Washington as of March 29.
The District's plan is to expand service between Adams Morgan and U Street by adding a route for the red, silver and black Circulators, which operate on three other circuits in the central city. [Karyn LeBlanc, spokeswoman for the District Department of Transportation, says this is not a replacement for the 98 route in that the Circulator will not follow the same route between the two neighborhoods, which are also served by other Metrobus lines.]
The finance committee also approved and forwarded to the full board a plan to buy four more of the buses on behalf of the District. An additional 14 buses are scheduled for delivery this month.
The District pays for the buses, though Metro procures them, so this move will have no impact on Metro's current budget problems.
Still to come after a public hearing later this month is a plan to end Metrobus's N22 route linking Union Station and Navy Yard, and replace that with yet another Circulator route.
