(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) today announced the publication of proposed rules that formalize the process, procedures and opportunities for public input required in the event of a fare or service adjustment to the DC Circulator. The proposed rules more clearly explain the current base fare structure and further specify and describe several opportunities and activities that encourage public input regarding a proposed change to the fares charged, routes, hours of operation, or other aspects of DC Circulator service. 

The rules will also further DDOT’s commitment to full compliance with the Federal Transit Administration’s requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These public participation elements will minimize the potential for creating adverse impacts on minority and low-income populations. 

We want to ensure that users and potential users have a say in our routes and our fares,” said DDOT Director Matthew Brown. “These regulations create an open process that will help us continue to develop a Circulator system that best serves District residents and its visitors.”

The proposed regulations may be reviewed and comments may be submitted at http://dcregs.dc.gov/Gateway/NoticeHome.aspx?noticeid=5116573

Written comments submitted to publicspace.policy@dc.gov are encouraged.
