Blue Bus To Be Replaced by Circulator

In just over a week, the Georgetown Metro Connection, also known as the Blue Bus, will become part of the Circulator system. 

Starting August 29, the new service will begin.  The new system will keep the exact same route, and will still run from Dupont Circle to Rosslyn, Virginia, with stops throughout Georgetown.
