Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maryland General Assembly has modified public access to legislative buildings during the 2022 Legislative Session. For more information on these changes, visit the Maryland General Assembly website. With the session beginning January 14, the City of Annapolis and Annapolis Parking offer the following tips for convenient parking downtown.
Reserve Garage Parking Ahead of Time: Visitors to Annapolis can reserve garage parking online in Knighton Garage or Gott’s Court Garage. Visit annapolisparking.com, navigate to your preferred garage, and select “Buy Daily Parking.”
Free Weeknight Parking: The Calvert Street Garage (the entrance is at 19 St. John’s Street) is free to the public Monday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Visitors may also park free at on-street meters weeknights after 7:30 p.m.
Free Weekend Parking: Calvert Street Garage is also free to the public on weekends beginning Fridays at 6 p.m. until Mondays at 6 a.m.; Whitmore Garage at 25 Clay Street is free Sundays until 4 p.m. and is steps away from West Street.
Contactless On-Street Parking: To slow the spread of COVID-19, enjoy contactless parking at on-street meters with the ParkMobile smartphone app. For details on how to download and use ParkMobile, visit the Annapolis Parking Contactless Payment page.
Ride the free Circulator: The free Circulator includes stops for legislative session visitors, such as the School Street-Church Circle stop near the State House complex, the Calvert Street Garage stop, and the North Street-State Circle stop next to the State House and legislative buildings. Visitors can track the Circulator’s location in real-time by downloading the “RLS Shuttle” app to their smartphone and clicking “Annapolis,” or visiting www.annapolisparking.com/circulator-alternative-transportation/.
