DDOT Releases Proposed Circulator Routes: Figure 1

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has released a number of new proposed DC Circulator routes. The routes are the product of public input, citizen advisory panels and town hall meetings.

According to Greater Greater Washington, three of the new routes would actually be extensions of existing lines:

  • The Rosslyn-Georgetown-Dupont line would be extended to 14th and U Street via New Hampshire Avenue;
  • The Waterfront-Convention Center route would be extended along M Street to the Navy Yard and Nationals Park;
  • The Union Station-Navy Yard Circulator line would be extended up into NoMa.

Other new proposed routes include:

  • A Waterfront-Dupont Circle line that runs via the Mall;
  • A U Street NW-Florida Avenue-North Capitol Street-H Street NE bus line;
  • An Anacostia-Skyland-Minnesota Avenue route;
  • A Brookland-Tenleytown route via Petworth, Columbia Heights, Adams Morgan, Connecticut Avenue and Van Ness.

If and when these routes become a reality remains to be seen. From Greater Greater Washington:

Officials hope to make these a reality over the next 2 to 3 years if they can get funding from the DC Council and the federal government, though in the current budget climate the chances may be remote.
