The D.C. Circulator bus service is expanding. The bus service, which is geared toward tourists as well as residents, is adding a route along the National Mall.

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and Council member Mary Cheh announced that money to plan the new D.C. Circulator route will be part of Gray's budget proposal. Their goal is to have buses serving the National Mall by late 2015.

D.C. Circulator buses are different from the city's transit buses. They were established through a public-private partnership, and many of the routes include destinations popular with tourists, including Union Station, Georgetown, the National Zoo, and Nationals Park. Fares are $1, and the buses arrive every 10 minutes.

Cheh says the new route will provide "greater access to D.C.'s national treasures."
