Since 2015, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has partnered with the National Cherry Blossom Festival to participate in the annual parade. Each year, in celebration of the festival, DDOT wraps a DC Circulator bus in pink floral artwork to kick off the Cherry Blossom season. The Blossom Bus commemorates the beauty of the cherry blossoms and serves as a reminder to all that the DC Circulator is an affordable and sustainable option for exploring our nation’s capital. The Blossom Bus will be in service across all six DC Circulator routes and provide special shuttle service for local community events. Learn more here.
