Traveling to the National Mall will become a lot less tricky this Sunday when service begins on the Circulator’s new route.
The National Mall route features 15 stops leading up to and around the Mall and memorials. Circulator buses will begin trips at Union Station and head south on Louisiana Avenue toward the Smithsonian museums. Buses will make a loop around the Tidal Basin, with stops at the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and Jefferson Memorial, then head back to Union Station.
Riders will be able to board National Mall Circulator buses like the others in the city, paying one dollar either with their SmarTrip card or with cash. During the summer, buses will run from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends. Trips will end at 7 p.m. during the winter.
Mayor Muriel Bowser, along with Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton and the National Park Service’s Bob Vogel, will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony tomorrow at the Lincoln Memorial. See a route map here.
