In October, riders who use D.C. Circulator buses will lose some service but also gain some.

On the Union Station-Georgetown route, buses will no longer run on Wisconsin Avenue north of M street. Additionally, all stops on the north side of M Street will no longer be served.

On the Smithsonian-National Loop route, which now operates only on weekends, all service will be discontinued during the Fall and Winter months.

On the Union Station-Navy Yards route, service will be slightly modified near Union Station. And on the Woodley Park/Adams Morgan-McPherson Sqaure Metro route, stops will be added on Columbia Road NW at Ontario Road.

The changes take effect on Sunday, October 4th.
