Getting Around Annapolis

There are many forms of transportation you can use in Annapolis, MD, but the main form of public transportation is the bus system. Annapolis has seven different bus routes that cover the entire city and its surrounding suburbs.

Annapolis also has a free trolley that you can ride around town. The trolley takes visitors around to all of the most popular sights in Annapolis and is ideal for tourists. The trolley runs every 10 minutes, so if you miss one, you don't have to wait long for the next one.

Another great way to get around Annapolis is on foot. Annapolis was founded in 1649, and as such, many of the streets are very narrow and not built to handle vehicular traffic, which is why it's better to walk through most of the city. The town center and the harbor, where most of the popular attractions are, are relatively compact and easy to navigate.

Annapolis is also a great place for biking. As with walking, the center of the city is compact, making it easy for you to navigate. The benefit to biking as opposed to walking is that it's easier to explore the areas surrounding downtown Annapolis, as you can cover more ground on a bike than on foot. If you don't have your own bike, Capital Bicycles, Inc. rents bikes out for several hours, a day, or longer.

Many people living in or visiting Annapolis drive in the city. There are an adequate number of parking spaces and lots in or near downtown, so you should be able to find a spot. Driving is a good way to get around Annapolis if you're planning on checking out some of the attractions in the surrounding area, and aren't just planning on sticking to downtown. If you don't have your own car, you can also rent one from a nearby rental car company.

You can also get around Annapolis by taxicab. In areas with a fair amount of nightlife, you may see a number of cabs, but because of the city's size, it's often better to call ahead and have a taxi pick you up directly. Otherwise, you could be waiting awhile if you want to try and hail a taxi from the street, as taxis aren't that abundant.
