Along with partners at Via and Bird, the City of Annapolis and AMRP will host a two-part event on May 17th, starting at noon at the Eastport Shopping Center (1023 Bay Ridge Ave.) followed by a second stop at 1 pm. at City Dock (Susan Campbell Park). The public is invited to these free events to check out the various modes of transportation. In addition, transit partners will be offering ride demos and giveaways.

At 2 pm, Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley will use the Annapolis GO app to book the first ride on Annapolis’ new rideshare program. The event will showcase the component pieces of the Annapolis Alternative Mobility Plan including the free downtown shuttle, the 10-minute electric tram, Annapolis GO! ride share app, and Bird e-bikes and electric scooters.

With the ongoing rebuild of Hillman Garage, the City has worked internally with Annapolis Transit and developed mobility partnerships to ensure transportation and parking are available for residents, tourists, and employees of downtown businesses. In addition to the 3,000-plus surface lot and garage parking spaces, the City has worked to create partnerships for additional modes of transportation during this time.
