Bus incident #236389

Why should the regular buses have all the fun? I don’t know if the driver was ‘altered’ in some way or if the bus lost brake power, but on its way to hitting this Georgetown U satellite building the Circ supposedly took out a parking meter and hit a parked van.

    Man, we can’t go a month without some sort of wacky bus tragedy. Jesus, for what Metro pays, you’d think they’d insist you be able to drive, right?

    Guess not.

    …or whatever.

    Note to self: don’t use the bus system.

    I don’t see the circulator bus down on K Street anymore, for a second I thought that was my office building.

    They rerouted the bus to go on Pennsylvania Ave., then M Street. It no longer runs along K Street.

    Tom,

    The Circ is not part of Metro. It is a quasi-private entity that was supposed to be a better-than-Metro alternative.

    Wayan – thanks for pointing that out. I was talking with some WMATA folks recently and someone mentioned the Cirulator bus. They were all very ready to distance themselves from it. I don’t know the background but apparently there’s some bad blood there.

    I don’t think that’s correct, Wayan. According to WMATA’s website, they manage the Circulator program: http://www.wmata.com/metrobus/dc_circulator.cfm

    Although it is in partnership with other entities.
