The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) provides a broad range of transit services for residents, workers, and visitors to efficiently and affordably move about the District. DC Circulator buses crisscross the city, K-12 students can get to school through the Kids Ride Free Program, and DDOT funds Metrorail and Metrobus service provided by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) in the District, coordinating to make service improvements for riders.
DDOT is working to improve bus travel speeds and reliability across the District through bus priority projects.
The Kids Ride Free program allows students to ride for free on Metrobus, the DC Circulator, and Metrorail within the District to get to school and school-related activities.
To ensure accessible and reliable public transportation for students, school officials can request that DDOT assess the feasibility of new public transit services.
