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.

“I rode the bus to get through DC and had a stress free ride”
“I had a very good experience. The bus driver was very courteous and professional”
“When I ride the service to get to work I always use a mask while riding and use hand sanitizer always when I’m interacting with the buttons and seats. It’s worth riding when it’s extremely cheap and affordable to all riders who want easy and convenient travel at all times and the bus isn’t packed that much so I kept my distance between riders for a safe experience with riding on circulator!”
“My mom and I found a wallet and turned it into the driver. One of the other passengers remembered the family and that the man was wearing all yellow. We spotted the man outside the bus and the driver pulled over and ran the wallet out to him on the National Mall. Great driver, really cares about his passengers!”
“I boarded the Circulator at Union Station after returning a rental car. I wore a mask covering my nose and mouth and sat away from other passengers. It was a convenient and safe trip home!”
“I double mask always using a N-95 mask paired with blue and white cotton based mask. I apply hand sanitizer before I get on the bus and I apply hand sanitizer just before I get off the bus.”
