Mayor Gavin Buckley welcomes members of the Maryland General Assembly, their staff and visitors back to Annapolis for the 2018 legislative session and offers a few parking tips for Marylanders planning to visit the Capital City.
Find the Best Parking For You: There are plenty of parking options available to those visiting Annapolis. Visitors can explore these options at www.AnnapolisParking.com, a mobile-friendly website featuring maps, rates, contact information, and additional details about the garages, surface lots, on-street parking, and Circulator services available to the public.
Reserve Garage Parking Online: This is the first legislative session in which visitors to Annapolis can reserve garage parking online in Noah Hillman Garage, Knighton Garage, or Gotts Court Garage. Simply visit www.AnnapolisParking.com, navigate to the garage of your choice, and select “Buy Daily Parking.”
Ride the Free Circulator: This also marks the first legislative session since the city eliminated the $1 fare on the Circulator. Visitors can now ride the Circulator entirely free from city garages to points of interest downtown. They can also track the Circulator’s location in real-time by downloading the “RLS Shuttle” app to their smartphone and clicking “Annapolis,” or visiting the mobile-friendly https://annapolisparking.com/circulator-alternative-transportation/ and click “Track the Circulator.”
Avoid the Crowds: Visitors who wish to avoid the city’s busiest parking locations should consider the Park Place Garage located at One Park Place on West Street or the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium lot. Park Place is serviced daily by the free Circulator and the stadium lot includes an Express shuttle service during the legislative session from 7:45am to 8:45am & 3:30pm-5:15pm Monday–Friday. Stadium shuttle fare is $2.
Free Parking After 6pm: Planning to attend an evening event? You can park entirely free at the State Garage (also known as Calvert Street Garage) after 6pm Monday through Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday. The entrance is located at 19 St. John’s Street.
