Uber is docking in Annapolis.

The popular ridesharing app now offers rides in the Maryland state capital, according to a Wednesday company blog post. Uber is available in Baltimore, Washington D.C. and about 40 other cities nationwide.

The base fare for an UberX vehicle in Annapolis is $2.76 plus 19 cents per minute and $1.52 per mile, according to Uber’s website.

The move into Annapolis appears to settle some doubt about Uber’s future in the state. It comes¬†not long after state legislators there failed to pass a bill that would have exempted Uber and competitor Lyft¬†(which currently serves Baltimore and Washington, D.C.) from common carrier status. Both carriers lobbied hard for the bill.

Uber called the legislation “critical” after a Public Service Commission staff counsel opinion that declared it a “motor vehicle-for-hire service” subject to common carrier rules.
