A new network of 29 buses, known as the Downtown D.C. Circulator, will begin connecting many of Washington D.C.’s most popular tourist spots and major business centers on July 10.
Scheduled to operate seven days a week, the Circulator will transport residents, workers and visitors along two initial routes designed to complement existing bus and rail lines.
The Circulator will cost $1 per ride, which includes free transfers onto any Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority rail and bus services. The buses will run at 5- to 10-minute intervals.
The Circulator, expected to receive an annual ridership of 4.6 million people when the system is fully implemented in 2008, was conceived as a way to alleviate congestion from tourism.
