Lineage / Processes

in OCTO



Eastbound and Westbound Night lines were added to the GeorgeTown - Union Station line. 35 addtional (some duplicate) stops added for this night route as well.

in Office of the Chief Technology Officer



Removed the Smithsonian/Mall route and moved the 7th St/Convention route and stops temporarily onto Maine Ave. This accounts for construction of the tennis stadium on the waterfront.

1.) Reroute of Union Station-Navy Yard near Union Station to allow for shared stop with Union Station-Georgetown route

Beginning October 1, 2012, Union Station-Navy Yard buses will detour westbound around Columbus Plaza, make a left on E Street NE, right on North Capitol Street, and right on Massachusetts Ave NE. The shared stop will be on eastbound Massachusetts Ave NE, just before E Street, where the current Union Station-Georgetown route stops now. A stop is also being added on westbound Massachusetts Avenue before Columbus Circle to allow those who wish to exit the bus before entering the Plaza to do so.

Please note, Union Station-Georgetown route will proceed from that stop to the garage to layover. The Union Station-Navy Yard bus will proceed from this shared stop back towards the Navy Yard via 2nd Street on its normal routing. This change is necessitated by the fact that Columbus Plaza construction will eliminate the current Navy Yard route stop at the Thurgood Marshall Building in the fall 2012.

2.) Union Station-Navy Yard slight reroute at terminus

At the southern terminus of the route, instead of turning right from 1st Street SE to I Street SE, buses will turn right from 1st Street SE to K Street SE. No bus stops will be impacted. Buses will continue on the normal route to the Navy Yard Metro stop and points north and east.

3.) Map change at 295 and Howard Rd

The Circulator map will be updated to reflect current operations, whereby buses turn off of 295 onto Howard Rd directly, instead of using the clover leaf further to the south and looping back on Firth Sterling. No bus stops will be impacted.
