New D.C. bus links neighborhoods across river

The District Department of Transportation has launched the first D.C. Circulator bus route east of the Anacostia River. The buses connect the Potomac Avenue Metro station with the Skyland neighborhood, east of the river, via the Barracks Row entertainment and restaurant center on Eighth Street SE.

The buses are scheduled to operate every 10 minutes from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays through March 31, then they’ll switch to 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays through Sept. 30. The stops along the route include three Metro stations. Besides, Potomac Avenue on the Blue and Orange lines, there’s Anacostia station on the Green Line and Eastern Market, also on the Blue and Orange lines.

Here’s a link to a Circulator system map that now includes the new route. The buses will use the 11th Street Bridge over the Anacostia.

DDOT made many other changes Monday in routes and schedules throughout the Circulator lines. See them in this posting on Circulator changes.
