CHECK OUT MY LATEST CIRCULATOR UPDATE FROM MAY 10, 2009
Click here for Circulator New Routes and Update.
The bright red DC Circulator busses drive three circular routes to and from many major tourist and dining areas in DC for only $1.00 per trip (half price for seniors and the disabled). The $3.00 one-day pass is a great deal if you are planning on lots of sightseeing. Busses stop every couple blocks and you can get on and off at any stop.
Convention Center – SE Waterfront Route – This route runs from the DC Convention Center through The National Mall to the SE Waterfront restaurant district. Some great restaurants and nightclubs can be found on the SE Waterfront along with Washington’s Fish Market. Runs daily from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.
Smithsonian – National Gallery of Art Route – This bus route is ideal for the Mall visitor. It circles the Mall from 4th Street to 17th Street along Constitution and Independence Avenues and gets you close to virtually every monument on the National Mall. The longest walks are (about 4 blocks) to the Capitol building from the furthest west end of the route and (about 7 blocks) to the Lincoln Memorial from the furthest east end of the route. Runs weekends only from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
