DDOT Extends Public Comment Period for Proposed DC Circulator Route Changes

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

(Washington, DC) -- The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) today announced it is extending the public comment period for the April 2018 Proposed Service Changes to allow the public more time to review and comment on the proposal.

Based on community feedback received at a public hearing on January 4, DDOT is extending the comment period until Friday, February 9, 2018.

DDOT announced a public comment period and hearing for the April 2018 Proposed Service Changes on December 14, 2017, along with the release of the DC Circulator Transit Development Plan Update.

DDOT released the final Transit Development Plan for the DC Circulator and announced recommended changes that resulted from the yearlong study to improve DC Circulator service system-wide.

The proposed major service changes involve reconfiguration of two routes (Union Station-Navy Yard Metro and Potomac Avenue Metro – Skyland via Barracks Row), and the addition of regular late-night service on Georgetown – Union Station, as well as a proposed fare media change.

Members of the public can submit comments using the online comment form, via email at [email protected], or by filling out any of the gray paper comment forms on all our DC Circulator buses. The paper comment forms can be returned in the survey collection bags on the buses or mailed to the address on the form. All comments will be reviewed equally.

DDOT representatives are available to attend and present at ANC meetings during the comment period. We would also like to invite community members interested in learning about future DC Circulator activities and events to subscribe to our newsletter here.

If you are interested in having a DDOT representative present at your meeting or have additional questions or concerns, please contact Circe Torruellas via email at [email protected] or 202-671-2847.
