Ready to Ferry Across the Mersey, to Quote Gerry and the Pacemakers?

As first reported by the Capital: 

"The request for proposals establishes a six-month timeline for the winning bidder to submit a written report and present its findings. When the pandemic crippled the tourism industry, groups like Visit Annapolis and Anne Arundel County began working more closely with counterparts across the state to seek solutions. The group started discussing bringing ferries back to the bay about a year ago."

With the likelihood of significant reconstruction of the Bay Bridge, the need for a ferry to move people and cars from one side of the Chesapeake to the other increases. 

Reportedly potential destinations for a proposed ferry stretch the length of the Chesapeake Bay, from Annapolis and Galesville in Anne Arundel County; Chesapeake Beach in Calvert County; St. Mary’s City and Leonardtown in St. Mary’s County; several Eastern Shore stops, including Crisfield, Chestertown, Easton and Cambridge; and north to Baltimore, Havre de Grace, and Chesapeake City.

Anne Arundel County, Visit Annapolis, and other municipalities have a February 15 deadline for vendors to submit feasibility studies for a ferry service throughout the Chesapeake Bay.
