Where’s the Circulator? Google Maps can tell you
They’re so reliable, in fact, that they’re probably the last form of District transportation that needs to provide a way for riders to check when the next bus is coming.
But you can do that, too, even in an age where a recalcitrant WMATA still has not worked out a deal with Google to provide real-time updates for its trains and buses, because the Circulator is so awesome.
Using Google Maps, you can see approximate arrival times for the next two Circulator buses for any given stop in the route—just click a blue bus icon when you’re zoomed enough to see them.
For regular WMATA buses, you’re still stuck with NextBus, which is seldom helpful.
