DC Circulator riders rated our bus cleanliness a 9/10 during the 2021 pandemic. We continue to frequently clean buses with high-grade disinfectants to eliminate the spread of COVID-19 and help keep our riders safe.


Bus operator shields are installed on all of our buses to help protect drivers and riders while interacting to safely answer questions and share information. Bus shields also allow riders to safely use front-door boarding.
