The DC Government announced that the Circulator bus riders can now access information about bus schedules and times from their cell phones with a “Where’s My Bus?” mobile GPS application from Google. The application allows riders to quickly find out how close the next bus is.
Google Transit is a site designed to allow visitors to plan trips using public transit—buses, subways, trolleys, etc. More than 444 jurisdictions and public transit authorities nationwide have placed their transit information on the site. The DC Circulator bus is an initiative launched in 2005 by the District of Columbia, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), and Surface Transportation, with support from the Downtown Business Improvement District. Its purpose is to increase transit options and reduce congestion in the city’s downtown core. It is run by DDoT, not by Metro.
