Attached are critical excerpts from DDOT press release. DDOT will be hosting two community meetings East of the River as part of a planning study.
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is inviting the public to learn more about the DC Circulator Planning Study and comment on proposed new corridors at two upcoming public meetings:· Monday, November 8, 2010, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, at the Martin Luther King Memorial Library, 901 G St, NW
· Saturday, November 13, 2010, from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm, at the Benning Library, 3935 Benning Rd, NE.
The public meetings are part of an ongoing public involvement process that will help guide the growth of the DC Circulator over the next five to ten years. The project team has engaged residents, civic and business leaders, and transportation agencies to identify transportation needs, opportunities, and challenges. The public is encouraged to participate and provide input by attending the public meetings or visiting www.DCCirculator.com, where they can comment and sign up to receive email notifications about future meetings and other opportunities to get involved.
Since its launch in 2005, the DC Circulator has grown substantially, now operating 49 buses on six routes and carrying over four million passengers a year. The DC Circulator supplements Metro’s bus and rail service and connects many of the District’s neighborhoods and activity centers. We hope to promote continued success in the District by continually evaluating the system and seeking input from the community that we serve.
