(Washington, DC) — Mayor Adrian M. Fenty along with Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans and the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) Director Gabe Klein announced today the DC Circulator route along Wisconsin Avenue will remain in service.
“After further review this administration has determined the route along Wisconsin Avenue is necessary to the residents, businesses and workers who rely on it as an economically reliable transportation choice.” said Mayor Fenty.
“The great outpouring of support from the DC Circulator ridership has once again ensured the continued service of this vital transportation option along the Wisconsin Avenue corridor,” said Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans. “I salute Mayor Fenty for his continued support of the residents of Ward 2 and throughout the city.“
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced on September 21st the DC Circulator would undergo several service changes coinciding with the beginning of the FY10 District budget including a discontinuation of the Wisconsin Avenue route north of M Street.
“It is never easy to make any cuts in service, and we did not take this particular cut lightly,” said DDOT Director Gabe Klein. “We are pleased that Mayor Fenty and Councilmember Evans are supportive of transit and its importance to the city and that they support keeping this portion of the route open.”
