The Bethesda Circulator is a convenient, dependable, and FREE shuttle service. Park your car at one of Bethesda's public garages, marked with a blue "P", then walk to the nearby Circulator stop.  If you take Metro, you'll find the Bethesda Circulator in the Bethesda Metro Station.

Hop on and off the Bethesda Circulator on your way to and from shops, theatres, restaurants, parking garages and metro. All of your favorite downtown Bethesda destinations are on or close to our route!

Ratings and Reviews

Faster, but needs work


Rather than displaying the time to the next stop, it would be helpful to show the time to my closest stop, or better yet, a stop of my choice (perhaps displayed as a countdown on the bottom of the screen). I don't care when the circulator will get to a distant stop. I do care when it will get to mine.

Saving and displaying favorite stops (and arrival times to them) would be very helpful.

Bus icons are a bit hard to see. Red on red is not very visible.

Doesn't work as promised

The description says you can see the bus location in real time. But all I see is the route, which is static.

Also the only options for showing my location are never and always. An option for when app is in use should be provided. When I choose show my location, it shows me on the map. But I know where I am. I want to know where the bus is.

Invasive privacy

This app tracks your location, even when not in use. Deleting until they add an option to use location data only when the app is open, as other apps do.
