Gulfton Circulator

The first circulator route is the Gulfton Circulator (routes 309 and 310). The route begins and ends at Westpark / Lower Uptown Transit Center connecting the Gulfton community to Hillcroft Transit Center. The route pattern was unanimously approved by the Gulfton Super Neighborhood Council. It also satisfies requests from riders on other bus routes.
