What is the Circulator?

The FREE Circulator trolley will loop through downtown from Westgate Circle to Memorial Circle:

The Circulator trolley will loop from the Westin Annapolis Hotel at Park Place, along West Street, making stops at Southgate, Knighton garage, the 7-11 and Cathedral Street, traveling around Church Circle and stopping at the Circuit Court building. It then travels down Duke of Gloucester Street, stopping at the historic City Hall on its way to St. Mary's Street, stopping near the Marriott Annapolis Waterfront Hotel. The Circulator also makes stops at City Dock, the Market House and at the corner of Francis Street.

The Circulator trolley will then loop up Main Street, around Church Circle, passing the Governors Mansion, as it travels to West Street, stopping near the Gott's garage (convenient for the Visitor Center and the Arundel Center), before returning to the Park Place garage via the O'Callaghan Hotel and the Loews Annapolis Hotel.

If you are getting on, just raise your hand and one of our courteous drivers will stop and pick you up.

What days and times will the Circulator trolley operate?

Sunday through Thursday – 6:30 a.m. to midnight
Friday and Saturday – 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m.

The Circulator has a 10-minute headway, which translates into an average wait between shuttles of about six minutes.

Update on City Dock Planning
by Denise Worthen

The City Dock Advisory Committee (CDAC) has been meeting since October 2010 to develop an overall vision and implementation strategy for improving the city’s signature public space. A major theme to emerge from CDAC and public forums is the transformation of the City Dock area with more public open space, a better pedestrian experience, and fewer motor vehicles. CDAC has been considering changes to Memorial Circle as a way of accommodating some of these goals. Not only is the existing circle a visual barrier but wide crossings and continuous traffic flow create challenges for pedestrians. The circle also usurps a large swath at the foot of Main St. that could be reclaimed for public open space. And, while the circle functions well during weekdays, heavy weekend congestion leads to backups on the streets feeding into the circle. One option under consideration is to modify the current traffic circle by narrowing the lanes and creating spaces for pedestrians to wait while crossing. This option creates some additional open space on the water side and along Hopkins Plaza. A second option is to reconfigure the circle into a modified T-intersection. This would provide a large public square in front of the Market House and a large plaza area on the water side. Signalizing the intersection also could allow pedestrians to cross. To see the two proposed intersection options for yourself, go to the City’s website . At the September 13 CDAC meeting, the committee was split on which, if either of these options to recommend. The public had a chance to weigh in at the public workshop on City Dock master planning, which was held on September 27 at the old Recreation Center (9 St. Mary’s Street). For more information, visit the CDAC page on the City’s website: .
