Redistricting Plan for Annapolis Elementary and Middle Schools

This spring, the Board of Education approved a sweeping redistricting plan for the Annapolis Peninsula, changing attendance boundaries for eight of the Annapolis cluster’s nine elementary schools and both of its middle schools - including Eastport - to better utilize space in facilities across the peninsula, reduce overcrowding issues, and establish a more neighborhood feel to school attendance areas. See a map of the new attendance areas for EES (PDF). The communities of Harbour House, Eastport terrace, Colony Hills, Parkwood/Springdale, Severn House, Fairview, August Woods and Spa Cove will attend Eastport Elementary as of this fall. We will have many more "walkers" with this neighborhood consolidation. Street and Sidewalk safety issues will develop as a result. Have a street, sidewalk, intersection, etc, of concern? Respond to the survey and get your views known now. Share this survey with friends and neighbors!

New Automated Fare Boxes Now Part of Annapolis Transit

Annapolis is modernizing bus fare boxes to improve service, handling and reporting of fare revenue. Bus tokens will be fazed out by November 30 and replaced by same day or multi-day fare cards available at ADOT offices located at 308 Chinquapin Round Road in Annapolis. Exact change will also be accepted on the bus, but no change will be given. The bar code reader on the bus will validate the passes.

The fare box system was purchased from TripSpark Technologies with a grant from the Federal Transit Administration and additional funding was provided by the Maryland Transit Administration. For more information about the new fare box system contact ADOT at 410.263.7964.
