District officials announced Tuesday that plans to end Circulator bus service to several stops on Wisconsin Avenue NW in Georgetown have been canceled, although they don't know where they'll find the funds to operate the route.
The Wisconsin Avenue extension had been eliminated to close a $950,000 gap in the D.C. Department of Transportation's budget, DDOT spokesman John Lisle said last week.
District officials said they reversed the decision because of vocal public support for the service. It will continue to operate on Wisconsin Avenue from Whitehaven Street to N Street.
The city will now have to find a way to fund the stops. A spokesman from Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's office and D.C. Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) both said the money to save the route will most likely come from the council's budget. But that budget has been approved and does not include funding.
Evans said money will have to be transferred from other projects. It was unclear Tuesday afternoon which projects would lose funds to pay for the Circulator route.
