The Georgetown Monitor reported yesterday that the DDOT is seriously considering a significant cut to the Circulator’s Georgetown service based on budgetary concerns and ridership totals. Despite Ward 2 DC Councilman Jack Evans’ protests, City Administrator Neil Albert has apparently already signed off on the plan.
The only hope for keeping the service is for DC residents and businesses to appeal to Mayor Fenty directly. If you’re interested in joining the petition to prevent further Circulator service cuts to this area, GM has a sample letter you can sign.
***For clarification, the DDOT’s proposal would eliminate the Wisconsin Avenue portion of the Georgetown-Union Station Circulator’s route, specifically from M Street to Whitehaven Street.
