WASHINGTON — The DC Circulator could soon ride again on the streets of Ward 7.
DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced the possibility as she presented her budget for Fiscal Year 2020 during a meeting Tuesday morning at the Wilson Building.
Bowser's budget would set aside $13 million dollars for a new Ward 7 Circulator.
The mayor also announced on Monday, during her State of DC address, that all DC Circulator service in the city would be made free to riders indefinitely.
The move, while applauded by many residents, was simultaneously criticized by locals who do not have access to the DC Circulator in their communities.
Ward 7 residents were particularly critical of the move since DC Circulator service had been taken away from the Hillcrest neighborhood roughly a year ago.
The mayor's proposed budget foresees $3.1 million to continue offering free DC Circulator bus services in fiscal year 2020.
