D.C. Circulator buses will run a 15-stop loop from Columbus Circle and E Street NE to the Lincoln Memorial beginning Sunday. The buses also will stop near the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and each of the Smithsonian museums on the Mall, among other places.

A bus will arrive at the stops every 10 minutes. The buses will operate from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays from April 1 to Sept. 30. From Oct. 1 to March 31, the buses stop running one hour earlier on weekdays and weekends.

The fare is $1.

“The DC Circulator’s expansion is a win for the District, its residents and visitors as a sustainable solution for moving people around the National Mall and into our unique and diverse neighborhoods,” Mayor Muriel Bowser said in a statement. “This route will provide people with greater access to the nation’s most iconic monuments, memorials and museums while boosting economic activity in the District.”
