Proposed Chesapeake Bay Ferry Locations Revealed

A vision to bring a passenger ferry to stops around the Chesapeake Bay is moving forward, as a map of six initial proposed locations goes public.

The idea of a ferry feasibility study was launched in 2022, when Visit Annapolis and Anne Arundel County submitted a grant application to the U.S. Economic Development Administration. Neighboring counties quickly saw a huge opportunity to connect different Bay communities and got on board. The Maryland counties of St. Mary’s, Anne Arundel, Calvert, Queen Anne’s and Somerset all contributed an initial $15,000 in matching funds for the feasibility study.

The study’s Phase II includes sending out the Chesapeake Bay Passenger Ferry Ridership Survey to various stakeholders to get their input.

Based on that feedback, the partners would conduct economic modeling. And the final step of the study is to identify funding sources and potential partners.

The final report from Phase I of the study is due in June.
