We might have had snow on Sunday, but  the folks who run the DC Circulator must be feeling optimistic about our future weather prospects.

Starting April 1, the Circulator will run two additional hours on weeknights and offer Saturday service on on two of its routes.  They have dubbed the change “summer service.” The extended service will run through Sept. 30.

  • The Union Station – Navy Yard route will run Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturdays, 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. There will be extended Circulator service for Washington Nationals baseball games. Buses on this route will run additional service on game days.
  • The Potomac Ave – Skyland via Barracks Row route will run Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.

Note: for Washington Nationals night games that begin at 4:05 p.m. or later, the Union Station – Navy Yard route service will run until 12 a.m. For Sunday home games, Circulator will operate this route from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

It costs $1 to ride the DC Circulator with additional discounts for seniors and District students.
