The Circulator: The Free and Dry Way Around Bethesda!

The weather this summer has been...not dry. But that shouldn't make you reach for your car keys!
You can still take the Metro or a bus, and then hop on the FREE Bethesda Circulator to take you the rest of the way to work! If you're riding your bike and it starts to rain, you can even pop  your bike on the rack on the front of the bus and ride the rest of the way to your destination. 
Click here to see the Circulator's route, schedule, and to download the free mobile apps for iPhone and Android!
